Apple Approves Toktumi's Line2: Gives Users 2nd Line on their iPhonesThis week, Apple approved Toktumi's Line2 Upgrade, so people can use their iPhone calling app over 3G, Wi-Fi, or cell networks using the same number. Ideal for small businesses and people with poor or no cell reception at the home or office, Toktumi's VoIP-enabled version of its calling app Line2: Version 2.0, is now available on iTunes.
For the first time, you can use your iPhone the same way, with the same number, whether placing or receiving calls over Wi-Fi, 3G, or Cellular Voice networks. If you live or work in a dead cell zone, or just want to reduce your cell bill, Line2 is a great solution.
Peter Sisson from Toktumi's perspective: "In the wake of the news that Verizon Wireless plans to put a crippled version of Skype on its phones, one that will not work over Wi-Fi, Line2 catapults AT&T to the front of the pack. The Line2 service is a huge win for AT&T’s iPhone customers, and demonstrates both Apple’s and AT&T's commitment to supporting next generation communications tools."
Line2’s Wi-Fi capabilities allow international travelers to place and receive calls while overseas without incurring voice or data roaming charges. Using Line2, calls to any number back home will be free, as will calls to other Line2 users, wherever they are worldwide. Calls to international numbers start at $0.02 per minute, whether calling from home or abroad.
Line2 is designed for professionals who can't afford to miss a call. It combines the best elements of Skype and Google Voice, but adds business grade features, reliability, and live customer support.
There is no other calling app available on the iPhone or any other mobile device with the flexibility and features offered by Line2. Line2 detects the best available network based on customer preferences and places and receives calls over that network automatically.
Advanced VoIP calling features include call waiting, call transfer, and conferences for up to 20 people – all without burning a single cellular minute. Wi-Fi call quality is better than cellular with Line2, and Wi-Fi calls between two Line2 customers use 16-bit HD audio for crystal clear sound quality that is stunning to experience.
Line2 is literally a second line on the iPhone, so that you have two numbers on one phone, each with its own voicemail, caller ID, and contacts. Business people can stop carrying around two phones, one for personal calls and one for work.
Each Line2 number integrates with Toktumi's hosted PBX platform, providing office phone features like auto-attendant ("Press 1 for..."), call screening, caller-specific call forwarding, after-hours settings, voicemail by email, and PC-based calling, all integrated with the Line2 application. You can get just one line or set up an entire office, with all lines billed to one account and managed centrally.
Line2 is a $0.99 download that comes with 30 days of free service. After that, service costs just $14.95/month for unlimited US/Canada calling and access to all features.
