Default VOIP for blackberry Truphone?

Please Login to Remove!

is truphone for blackberry a real VOIP client? it says is works alongside your service provider, but it asks for WI-FI so im guessing it dosent use minutes, but just wi-fi data.

anyone got any more info on this?

I am so glad that this service is available on the BlackBerry. I missed it when I gave up my E61i. Yeah, UMA is great, but extra options are very nice to have.

Truphone works over Wifi and is a true VoIP client.

It is dial around not a VoIP solution.

yeah that is what i concluded, itz a true VOIP on the ipod touch but not for a BB... this is annoying, i want to be able to call other BBs without using my minutes, is RIM blocking true VOIP clients like skype?
