Whether texting or calling, Viber puts you in touch with other Viber users both nationally and internationally. It’s free, quick, and easy to install and you can talk to your friends and family for as long as you like. The great thing about Viber is that you can zip from Wi-Fi to 3G/Edge without losing service.
Also a positive is a consistency of functionality across all platforms including iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry. If you have Viber but your friends and family, don’t, fear not. Viber Out allows you to make calls to other mobile devices and landlines; the service isn’t free, but it is less costly than traditional calls.

Already there on Android devices, and provided with all Google accounts, Google Hangouts is one of the most accessible VoIP mobile provisions.

As with other mobile VoIP providers Google Hangouts allows calls between users free of charge. It also permits free internal calls to landlines and cheap international rates.
