Noted: Vonage phone service, which isn’t just for the home anymore, introduced Vonage World Mobile, an unlimited international plan to users of its newish Vonage Mobile plan. Qualified devices include the iPhone, iPod Touch and BlackBerry.
The Internet phone company introduced the mobile phone service in October, which charged per call. The new unlimited mobile international plan to 60 countries is $24.99 per month. The mobile service uses Wi-Fi and cellular service (iPod Touches only use Wi-Fi) and relies on the customer’s cell phone number to make calls. Calls to U.S. numbers are free using Wi-Fi.
Not every international city is included — no Vietnam — and looks like calls to cell phones in Mexico aren’t part of the deal either. Here’s the complete list of countries:
