My Voxox Call Story. From San Diego to Serbia While I Drive to Work.

Voxox Call for iPhone Keypad
I’ve been using our first iPhone app --Voxox Call-- for a little while now, and wanted to share how useful it is for me personally.

My dad currently lives in Serbia, which is 9 hours ahead of where I live.  I like to chat with him every 2 weeks or so but I previously had a hard time coordinating a time to call him.  My issue was that I do not have the time to call him during the day at work and when I get home he is sleeping, that only leaves the morning.  Problem is I am not a morning person so I don’t have a lot of time between the time I get up and the time I get in the car to go to work.  I do have a 30 minute commute but in the past I could not call him because my cell phone does not have international calling turned on and if I did it would cost too much to use it (over $1 per minute to Serbia).

The Voxox Call iPhone app has helped me solve this problem.  I open the app, click on Contacts, then his name. After a couple of seconds, Voxox calls me back with my dad on the line. I get inbound calls free with my mobile carrier, so all I pay is Voxox's reasonable international rates. (I pay approximately $.08 per minute to the call out to my dad's landline and another penny per minute for Voxox to call my U.S. mobile back. Voxox actually bridges the two calls for a cheap cumulative $.09 per minute rate.)


So, on my way to work I can catch up with my dad. And save on my phone bill with cheap international calls. What will they think of next?
