Just got a note from Internet calling solutions provider JAJAH, announcing today's launch of their new iPhone Web app at http://iphone.jajah.com.

Why is this app important? It enables international calls for 2 to 3 cents a minute, as compared to AT&T Mobility's rates (several times more expensive per minute).

Here's how this works:

The JAJAH iPhone app comes with the look and feel of the iPhone's dial pad and address book enabling users to make low-cost global calling directly from their Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. You simply point your mobile Safari browser to http://iphone.jajah.com and type in the number you want to call.

Plan B, acocrding to JAJAH:

Alternatively you can select the name in your JAJAH contacts and click on the number you want to call. JAJAH will call your phone, you pick up, and you will be connected to the desired international number. You can call any phone anywhere in the world (landline or mobile) without the need of an international calling plan - the registration is free, there is no contract and no monthly fee, just big savings.

iPhone-using readers, are you at least tempted by such solutions?

  • iPod Touch?

    How do you use something that does not have any audio input (mic) as a phone?

    • You're right: no mic in the touch

      I was wondering the same thing. If the iPod touch has a microphone buried in it, I've yet to find it. It's a sweet device (for us Australians, it's the closest we can get to an iPhone for now), but has clearly been crippled in many ways when compared to its "big brother".

      • What about the iPhone Headphones

        i think the iPhone headphones have a built-in mic, can that be used in iPod touch? has anyone tested that yet.
