Introduction

There are a few VoIP programs on iPhone; however, due to the restriction from AT&T, they can only be used with WiFi, not 3G. Well, imagining you can use them with 3G network, then you can use them just as regular cell phone to make free or cheep international call. Cool, right? Now with a program on Jailbreaked iPhone, called "Tricker ThreeG", you can do it. It works for Skype, Fring, SlingPlayer, and even iTune on your iPhone.

Warning
