Phone people for free, through your phone’s Wi-Fi. That’s right – free, as in no cash, nada…

We’re afraid to say that if you are a Droid user, there is nothing to see here as the folks at Truphone haven’t made the app compatible with your handset yet.
For everyone else Truphone has the rather big boast of giving you phone calls for free, with the app taking advantage of your phone’s Wi-Fi signal. If this sound too good to be true, that’s because it is. Kind of.
Truphone’s heart is in its right place but when we tried it out, it seemed to splutter worse than an elderly gent with a 40-a-day smoking habit.
To start with, the set up was a bit of a mare as you have to type all your details in then wait for an automated phone call to start up. When it did start working phone calls over Wi-Fi kept knocking themselves out.
Instant messaging worked better but the whole experience left us feeling a bit annoyed. This isn’t the best when you are trying to speak to a distant relative from Mozambique. Also, Android users don’t get half the amount of functionality that iPhone users get and that is just wrong.
