Vonage apps now let you call Facebook friends for free

Vonage apps now let you call Facebook friends for free Vonage has introduced apps for Android and the iPhone this week that will allow users to make free domestic and international calls to their Facebook friends.
The apps, dubbed Vonage Mobile for Facebook, are free for smartphones running iOS or Android.

Open the app, sign in with your Facebook and then you will be asked "what information you want to allow your friends access to." At that point you will probably get the message: "Less than 5 of your friends have Vonage mobile for Facebook." You then have the opportunity to invite more.

You can make the phone calls over Wi-Fi or 3G, although 3G will use up minutes. Wi-Fi-connected calls are free, and will save you minutes.

Vonage says it plans to add pay services to the apps in the future, such as low-priced text messaging.

the calls may work, but the low priced text will fail,, first off if one or the other person dont have a text plan, they still get billed for text messages, so then u pay twice, for texts, lol once through your provider, and another time through vonage lol. Nope no point for me to have this. I have the facebook app, 90% of my facebook friends have a text plan, so ..
