How Vopium works:
Vopium is a free mobile software program that leverages mobile VoIP and Wi-Fi technology to greatly reduce the cost of international phone calls made from mobile phones while also maintaining excellent call quality. Free and easy to download, Vopium integrates directly with the user’s mobile address book, automatically re-routing all international calls via the least expensive method available. In addition to heavily discounted international calls, Vopium users can also slash the costs of sending text messages (SMS) abroad as each message costs only USD .13.
Call for free using Vopium Wi-Fi:
Vopium users can also make free and heavily discounted calls using Vopium Wi-Fi. Vopium automatically detects if a user is connected to Wi-Fi and enables users to call other Vopium Wi-Fi users around the world for free. If a Vopium Wi-Fi user calls a non-Vopium Wi-Fi user, they pay only the reduced international Vopium rate.
