    hi there

    has anyone figured out a way on the BB to make free long distance calls with north america?

    i was looking at the Vonage App, but i am not sure how good it is and if there is a better alternative?

    thanks in advance

    I get free long distance from Bell, so I haven't had to use any apps

    but as a Vonage user for my home phone, they are a pretty solid provider

    Only way would be if you had a BB with wifi and were trying out the IM+ for Skype beta.

    If you have Vonage at home, then you can use it to make long distance calls - using an app called Vonforward available in teh BB App world. You specify your vonage login info and provide the intended # to be called - the app sets the intended # as teh call forward # and dials your home phne (local call) and your vonage # in turn calls the long distance #s. I use it for making international calls from my blackberry but using my vonage phone.

    just walk over to your neighbor's and tell them you need to borrow his phone to test your cell number.
