A customer can subscribe entirely on phone without leaving the interface. VoX offers a VoIP plan, starting at $4.95 per month, for customers wishing to call a phone number outside the VoX network.
The customers can also avail 500 minutes of calling for $9.95, and $29.95 for unlimited calling to the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. Moreover, the users can also make 3G/4G and WiFi (News - Alert) calls on their Android device without using the voice plan minutes on their existing smart phone plan.
“We have updated our Android VoIP app so that any Android user can download it, make free calls and send free text messages to others who have our app,” said Paul Riss, chief executive officer of Pervasip Corp., the parent company of VoX Communications, in a statement. “Earlier this month, we launched our Android app and required a fee of $4.95 to sign up for services and receive a telephone number. We had more than 1,000 downloads in the first week, and many people want to try the free calling before they use our service for inexpensive calls to landlines or other mobile phones. We have adjusted the product so that anyone who downloads the app can now try it without making a payment.”
Riss continued, “Free calls are also available from the Android device to an Ojo Vision Video phone that runs on the VoX network. We are very excited about the quality and multiple uses provided by the app, and we have already met with a tablet manufacturer to demonstrate how well the app works on an Android tablet.”
