sipgate - VoIP for iPhone vs T-Mobile
sipgate - VoIP for iPhone vs T-Mobile. We've already heard some services about VoIP for iPhone such as iCall, and fring. Yeah, it's already ordinary that sipgate also brings VoIP to your iPhone. You can use sipgate to place and receive calls over Wi-Fi using any SIP-based VoIP-service. It can save mobile minutes, whenever Wi-Fi is available, bypass roaming charges, and place calls at virtually no cost when travelling abroad. What's interesting is that T-Mobile Germany has asked his company to cease and desist offering the company's flagship VoIP software.

According to Thilo Salmon, CEO of sipgate, Inc.,
T-Mobile disallows jailbreaking, running VoIP, instant messaging, and VPN applications as part of its subscriber contract. Salmon notes, however, that sipgate only works via WiFi (and not GPRS or EDGE), and therefore does not run on T-Mobile's network. He says, "for the time being our users are safe."

Salmon said "we may need to fight this all the way through the courts." He also suggests that it's largely a government policy issue for Germany, and wants to lobby for a net-neutral environment for telecom carriers.

VOIP is definitely the way of the future. It's exciting to see the new technologies being developed. I am an electrical engineering and programmer, and although I don't work in the VOIP field, I am great interested by it.
