Read elsewhere, but forget the source, that Vonage is vowing to under-cut Skype on price by at least 20%.

Remarkable (?) coincidence that Vonage and DellVoice apps launched concurrently. I installed both on Wednesday. DellVoice is free within most of Canada and 2-cents minute to those areas it doesn't cover. LD to USA, UK, HK, FR etc is also 2-cents. DellVoice uses its own tel numbers which it assigns, includes all incoming calls, voicemail and call forwarding/following but there is on-screen advertising. There is no SMS.

Vonage uses your existing mobile number (uses SMS to verify account before it can be used). Vonage to Vonage calls are free but incoming calls, unless placed through Vonage would come out of your mobile plan and there doesn't appear to be any vm for Vonage to Vonage calls.

Both apps access iOS's contacts to create their own contact list.

Two remarkably similar yet distinctly different services. Suggest trying them both while they are free.
