Exclamation IPhone App to Sidestep AT&T

http://finance.yahoo.com/family-home...o-sidestep-att

It can save you money. It can make calls where AT&T's (T) signal is weak, like indoors. It can turn an iPod Touch into a full-blown cellphone.

And it can ruin the sleep of cellphone executives everywhere.

Line2 gives your iPhone a second phone number -- a second phone line, complete with its own contacts list, voice mail, and so on. The company behind it, Toktumi (get it?), imagines that you'll distribute the Line2 number to business contacts, and your regular iPhone number to friends and family. Your second line can be an 800 number, if you wish, or you can transfer an existing number.

The Line2 app is a carbon copy, a visual clone, of the iPhone's own phone software. The dialing pad, your iPhone Contacts list, your recent calls list and visual voice mail all look just like the iPhone's.

Line2 also turns the iPhone into a dual-mode phone. That is, it can make and receive calls either using either the AT&T airwaves as usual, or -- now this is the best part -- over the Internet. Any time you're in a wireless hot spot, Line2 places its calls over Wi-Fi instead of AT&T's network.

It wont ever make it in the app store. I just looked and it isnt in there. It reminds me too much of google voice and apple and google went to court over that one. It is a great idea though. Recently I have been loosing signal in my house but have perfect wifi.

i was reading that this morning, and it sounds like a pretty cool service. at&t would be a little upset if apple approved that for the app store!

it was physically in the App Store last night but I couldn't click on it. A few minutes later it wasn't there at all.

It's strange. I did a search for it and found it in the app store, though it gave me an error when I selected it, but now it's gone completely.

It's another voip attempt, but this time properly with a UI it seems. You will not see this in the app store of course... violation of many (if not all) of apple's terms of use/distribution.
