    ...that DOES NOT use voice minutes? I travel extensively globally and have a worldwide blackberry data plan - but roaming minutes kill me. What I am looking for is a true data only voip client for my blackberry pearl 8120 that uses only data. I have tried a few, but all seem to indicate that they use voice minutes as well as data.
    Any suggestions appreciated.

    EQO - Mobile VoIP, free texts, and free mobile IM with EQO

    That is the only app I know of...

    Other than that, you can switch to TMobile and use your 8120s WiFi to call over UMA!! You can do this free from anywhere with Hotspot@Home service

    (I had a better write-up for you and accidentally closed my browser window!! sh*t!!)

    Welcome to CrackBerry.

    The best you can get is Unlicenced Mobile Access and the only carrier that supports it is T-Mobile.

    When UMA is active, in any Wifi Hotspot, anywhere on the Planet, you have unlimited VoIP and data.

    Thanks for the quick responses.
    Unfortunately I have to stay with ATT (company policy), so I guess I'm toast in using a true voip data only client with my BB? (I think EQO uses minutes).

    FYI, I checked with EQO support and they said:

    "EQO uses local voice minutes for the duration of the call.
    I don't think that there are any pure VoIP BlackBerry
    clients out there just yet--though I am sure someone will do
    this soon.

    If this isn't a niche market, I don't know what is Who wouldn't pay a one-time fee to have a tool that goes through the port filter hoops and actually delivers true VoIP...

    I know Skype and telecoms have (spoken or not) agreement NOT to allow voice over data plan, so I am wondering how long before we see a third party solution...

    Nope. Even EQO uses a local number to call into their network. Skype does the same thing.

    Hi all,

    I've tried loading http://m/eqo.com into my 9500 Storm browser (which is set to Blackberry IDentification) but I get a gateway eror saying that address doesn't exist.

    Does anyone know how to download EQO OTA??

    I'm desperate for a VOIP application on my 9500.

    I'm a noob when it comes to the latest gadgets but I'm told something about a SIP number. I was told to look at Gizmo5.com but found they were recently acquired by google. Can anyone shed any light? Will this really solve our dilemma?

    Just download BlackVoib for free and use it until Sept 15. BlackVoib is a BlackBerry SIP client not tied to any service and runs at least on 4 BlackBerry models.

    Just follow the link
    BlackVoib is a SIP client for BlackBerries
