Great news! Vonage has expanded their compatibility to Android phones. As it stands, only customers of AT&T and T-Mobile will be able to use the VoIP service, as Vonage has Sprint and Verizon listed as incompatible with their service at this time (GSM only).  Senior vice president of product management, Michael Tempora, gave us all this piece of information about Vonage’s plans to expand their services:

“We are focused on ensuring that our customers can enjoy all the benefits of their Vonage service from any location using any device that can access the Internet. We will continue to expand our offerings in 2010 to include a robust set of voice and messaging services that utilize Wi-Fi and 3G wireless networks.”

Since Verizon has exclusivity on Skype, a lot of people are searching for an alternative. Vonage is definitely a service to consider. While Vonage is a paid service, you will get unlimited international calling to over 60 countries using Wi-Fi and cell signal for $24.99 per month, which is an incredible deal if you make international calls frequently. Another great deal from Vonage is available if you get the Vonage World Mobile for $24.99 per month, you are eligible to save $10 per month on Vonage World Home.

Vonage for Android is compatible with phones running Android OS 1.5 or higher on the GSM side only. If you are interested in picking up the application, it can be found in the Android Market.  If you already have Vonage World Mobile, let us know what you think of it so far in the comments below!
