Cell Phones Vs Internet Phone – A Comparison Of The Two Types Of Phone Services

Internet phone service has always been the choice of the smart landline phone users. Now a day, a new trend of using internet phone on the mobiles is on the boom. There are many benefits that internet phone offers, which are not offered by the cell phone service providers. Let us look at how internet phone is better than cell phones.

Calling Rates

Cell phones are an expensive type of phone service to use. The bills of the cell phones are really high and they cost a lot of money to their users. When you make international calls, the bills increase manifolds. Therefore, we cannot call cell phones as a cheap phone solution by any means. When you want to cut your cell phone bill, you will have to drastically reduce the number of phone calls that you are making. Internet phone gives you complete freedom and peace of mind. You can choose from any of the call plans offered to you according to your specific needs and save even more money. Leading VoIP services like Axvoice offer highly subsidized call rates for international calls, which make phone calls abroad a lot less costly to make.

Global accessibility

Cell phones are bound by location of their cellular network. You have to be in reach of your carrier in order to ensure that you receive and send phone calls. This is a major limitation of the cell phones. You can use your cell phone outside the reach of your network but you will have to pay additional charges for that. Internet phone on the other hand allows you to freely use it at any place in the world. You just need to connect it with an internet line to make and receive phone calls. You do not even need to pay any additional charges for that. This further reduces the costs that you pay for phones during your travel.

Flexibility in terms of use

Cell phones can only be used through a mobile, and you do not have any other way of using them. VoIP phone service can be used in three different ways. The first commonly used method is through the VoIP ATA that is special equipment used for internet phone service. You just connect one end of this equipment with internet and the other with your phone to make and receive phone calls through internet. The second way is by using the PC based VoIP service. In this kind of internet phone service, all you need to do is to install the software of the phone service and attach a headset with microphone for using the phone service. The last method is called mobile VoIP. You can also use your mobile as your VoIP phone by installing a mobile VoIP app on your cell phone.

Features of service

Internet phone service is a feature rich calling technology. Choose any of the good VoIP providers and you will be able to enjoy all the advanced service features on your phone. Cellular services offer very basic phoning features to their customers and for any of the advanced features the subscribers need to dole out additional money.

  • There IS a lot of flexibility in VoIP, isn’t there?  I do agree that mobile phone service has its limitations.  I just feel that it’s best to use them in conjunction with each other.

    This is a fact. People don’t prefer mobiles because of their low rates. In fact their rates are higher than even the ordinary land line phone service. The reason mobiles are popular because we can take them anywhere we go. In terms of price VoIP is far ahead of these mobiles.

    Besides price, voip is better than the mobile phones in many other ways. Just take the example of features offered by Axvoice. Ordinary mobile phone service providers can never offer such luxuries to their clients. Features like call recording and voice mail are specified for voIP service only. 

  • DaniaJoyce

    Definitely, if you don’t have a reliable wi-fi internet service, you will never be able to run VoIP service on your mobile phone. Although, 3G technology can be used for VoIP on mobile but most of the providers prefer wi-fi technology if you want to use VoIP on your mobile.

    Well frankly speaking experts started to pay attention to mobile VoIP service just 1-2 years ago. Before that, most of the people were using VoIP service either on their mobiles or on their computer. However, right now, experts say that compatibility of VoIP technology with mobile phone technology is a must.

  • Courtney

    As far as the comparison of rate between VoIP service and mobile phone is concerned, I would say comparison remains quite unfair. VoIP is offering the lowest calls in the market. Mobiles are not popular because of their low prices at all. People prefer them due to some other reasons.

    Well no one can deny that features offered by Axvoice and other VoIP service providers are far better than the few features offered by mobile phone service providers. Hence, the fact is that mobile phones and VoIP service both in equal demand. If they want to survive, they have to develop more compatibility for each other.

    I don’t think you can user the same cell phone number around the globe. These are only the VoIP numbers that can be used around the globe. Get one VoIP number and receive calls on it whereever you are. Even you can get a number from London and receive calls on it while you are in USA. 

  • Aleah Natalie

    No doubt, you can not use the same mobile phone number around the globe but the fact is that this technology is popular because user can travel with this technology in some particular country. The better way is to combile these two technologies. A combination of Mobile and VoIP technology will work even better.
