Internet phone or VoIP is not a new name to know about. However, what’s new is the evolution of this technology into a new form called the mobile VoIP. Mobile VoIP had first been introduced back many years ago. At that time there weren’t many people who would visualize that this kind of mobile phone service would be able to become so popular that it would finally replace the cell phones. At the time of inception of this technology no one ever thought that it would be used by a larger customer segment. Let us how it is major advantageous than cell phones for the cell phone users because which it will finally replace the cell phones.

Calling rates

Cell phones have always been very expensive because of the extra costs that the carrier has to bear. This cost soars up further when you have to make international phone calls. This is why many people don’t like to use too much of their cell phones. Mobile VoIP phones are charged at the same rate at which your VoIP provider is offering the services. Subscribe to any of the leading VoIP services like Axvoice or Vonage and you will surely get a lot lower calling rates not only for the domestic phone calls but also for making calls abroad to international destinations worldwide.

Mobility

Mobile phone cannot be everywhere without a cost. You will have to pay a lot of additional charges like roaming etc to use your cell phone anywhere else. Mobile VoIP like the usual VoIP ATA can be used anywhere by just connecting to the internet. All you need to make the connection is a wireless internet connection and you are all set to use your phone. The level of mobility that mobile VoIP can offer you, no other type of phone including cell phones can provide.

Call quality

Call quality forms an important part of the overall phone usage experience. Poor voice quality results in a frustrating and annoying experience of use the phone. Cell phones rely on an aging technology which can never provide you clearer calls. Internet phone on the other hand uses internet and the same technology is used on mobile VoIP as well, which resultantly delivers crystal clear voice quality.

Features

Choose from any of the leading internet phone service providers and you are sure to get a lot of service features. The beauty of mobile VoIP is that all the features that you were using on your regular ATA VoIP can be used on it as well. Usually internet phone services don’t charge a lot for advanced features as well like E911 support, do not disturb, distinctive ring, call forwarding, enhanced voicemail, and voicemail notification. Cell phone services usually don’t offer that much number of features to their customers.

Softphone support

Softphone is a piece of software that provides a graphic user interface that you can use to operate your mobile VoIP service. There are many paid and free versions of software for all kinds of protocols and platforms. Unlike mobile phone, mobile VoIP offers a lot of variety in terms of support so you can use different graphic user interfaces with different features and aesthetic look.

Definitely, if you don't have a reliable wi-fi internet service, you will never be able to run VoIP service on your mobile phone. Although, 3G technology can be used for VoIP on mobile but most of the providers prefer wi-fi technology if you want to use VoIP on your mobile.

As far as the selection of VoIP service is concerned, my experience is all the applications are approximately the same. Most of them offer the same facilities as others. What important is you must have a very reliable wi-fi internet for your mobile VoIP phone service.

I don't think that cell phones are going to lose users because of the lower rates of voip, or at least not any time soon. Although mobile voip technology is going to get more popular and popular with time, it will take quite some time until everybody is swept by this trend.
