A WiFi Mobile Phone

By Edited Nov 13, 2013 0 2

WiFi mobile phones allow you to use services such as Skype in order to get free calls from Skype to Skype customers once you are near a WiFi hotspot. This means that you can not only get your local calls for free, you can also get your international calls for free. Basically this VoIP technology gives you the ability to make a phone call to halfway across the world if you want. Because Skype is so popular these days, for many different reasons, many mobile phone manufacturers are producing models of mobile phones with WiFi.

Before you can access these great Skype VoIP technological services you need to purchase a mobile WiFi phone. There are many different companies where you can buy these phones direct. You can also go to many online stores which specialize in mobile phones. The third option is to visit Amazon or eBay; here you will probably find the best WiFi mobile phone. Most of these mobile phones will be a WiFi enabled straight out of the box.

Of course you can always visit the Skype website. One of their products is the Skype VOIP Netgear WiFi mobile phone. This WiFi mobile phone will allow you to call anyone, anywhere in the world free without the need of a PC, so long as the person you are calling is also part of the Skype network. You can also make calls to mobile phones and landlines outside the Skype network for a fraction of the price that it will cost you with either landline or mobile phone networks. This phone also enables you to display and manage your contact list. As with all of these phones, security can be an issue. The Skype VOIP Netgear WiFi mobile phone is encrypted and secure.

In order to make use of WiFi for mobile phone on the Skype network, each phone uses the VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology. This is basically where instead of using the traditional phone line technology Skype makes use of broadband Internet connections. It does this by breaking up the conversation into computer data, wrapping that computer data into the small packets. The software then sends those individual packets of computer data through the Internet to the person whom you are calling.

The WiFi on mobile phone technology your Skype mobile phone uses is designed so that you can connect to your own Skype account once you are within range of a WiFi hotspot. Many of these mobile phones for use on Skype have certain flaws because the technology is still fairly young. One of the flaws is that you cannot see the screen if you are out in bright sunshine. These mobile phones also do not incorporate any advanced features that you would find on your standard mobile phone. The connection quality varies within the United States when calling landline or other mobile users. But, on Skype to Skype calls, either within the United States or overseas, the quality is exmobileent with no discernible time lag and no static to speak of.

This WiFi-thing is just exactly what I needed as an additional feature in a mobile phone. It's good to know that even without a subscription fee for using internet, a WiFi enabled phone can easily access even Skype messenger by just looking for wireless hotspots. Thanks for the info!
