I use a Samsung Galaxy S2 at the moment so I cant use TimeToCall even if I wanted (hint).

Well, to dish all of what I use for calling, here's the list:
  • iPhone 4
    • Which regularly uses Skype and Google Voice (GV as a Click2Call Service)
  • Skype for Mac & PC
  • Google Voice
    • Used in combination with Skype (via SkypeIn) and Gmail
  • Home Phone/Landline (because almost everyone needs one… I think.)
Of course, since my iPhone 4 matters to me the most and is vital to my communications, I use the combinations of Skype and Google Voice together with my iPhone 4 to harness the full function of both services to bringing communication to my device. 

In an aspect of usefulness, it does save me a lot to call using Skype/Google Voice combined with my iPhone. Sometimes, one can overrule another and save me more! For instance, my carrier, AT&T, would charge $3.51/min. to call a mobile in the Philippines from my home country, the U.S. Skype doesn't include that country in the list of countries that is included in its world unlimited subscription and a regular connection would be 17.4¢/min. Google Voice overrules them all by making all calls to the Philippines 15¢/min., which puts me in the comfort zone of calling with Google Voice over Skype.

While it sounds confusing, it really saves a whole load of money. In addition, a lot of countries are supported on my subscribed unlimited world plan on Skype (of which all I really care about is U.S., Canada, and Hong Kong and incoming calls.) Being able to use it in combination with my iPhone 4 and Google Voice just makes it even better!

Finally, I'm willing to try out the Vonage Time to Call™ app to examine its call quality, value, ease-of-use, and usefulness. I'm always open to trying out new things and I've always wanted to see what Vonage can do!

(Fun/Random Fact: I pass by Vonage's Headquarters in Holmdel, NJ as I go to classes in my college <5 minutes away! Haha)

Most of my calling is done at work - a cheapy Panasonic cordless phone on a Linksys PAP2T ATA adapter, with VoIP through VentureVoIP. Have been entirely VoIP for 18 months here.

When out of the office I use my iPhone. Haven't really tried any extra apps - I make few enough calls that the cost isn't a concern.

At home I also have a cheap Panasonic cordless on a PAP2T - all VoIP for well over three years now, initially on Xnet then some company I can't remember that charge my credit card $10 a month. Only thing it's used for is so my mother-in-law can call.

And the exciting picture!

iDog.AppI use an iPhone 4 normally
for work and for play.
What I do varies by the day..

Sometimes 'Viber', sometimes 'Pay'
'cause those 'free' minutes?
Well, they make me pay. And pay.

So it's Skype & FaceTime,
sometimes a lil' DogTime.
Unless I'm at home (which doesn't Rime)

And if it's to a landline.
And if it's not billable.
Then good ol' POTS is desirable

GB's worth of data,
Personal Hotspots,
Vodems 'v' Lion X's...

My daughter steals my iPad,
MSN's on the iPhone App,
FB's on the Google App

So if I win the iPad
She'll have a happy Dad
3G = GPS = Geocaching or Navigating like Mad!
(On Me-iPad)

I'd try Time To Call
If I had Time To Call.
Thats the Time and the App!

My Bro' in Boston be happy
