"For businesses whose employees initiate a significant number of international calls from their BlackBerry mobile devices, Raketu's BlackBerry Application is a great way to reduce monthly calling costs."

    Raketu's new BlackBerry Application is entirely web-based and does not require consumers to download any software.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~hmmmm this is interesting because it includes the sms feature. Definately will give non. T-mobile users a chance to experience the hotspot@home service to an extent. And I stress the to the extent.

    I agree! Due to the fact that T-mobile will add the service even if you have just the data plan and then say "oops, you can't use it...sorry".

    For one, I really appreciate Hayden, whoever he is, sending out all this new info day after day. PinStack is not only great for help and advise but it's a great place to stay in touch with the new stuff coming out. Sometimes it's more than most of us can keep up with, much less evaluate.

    On that point, there seem to be several of these voip services that work with smart phones - I just heard about EQO not too long ago - I know there are others. Does anyone have knowledge of a comparison of these products...even the different features?. That would help some of us who are overwhelmed by all the choices and really don't have the time to be guinea pigs on all of it. Just thought I'd ask

    Thanks,
    jblackfish

    Re: Raketu Debuts VoIP Service Offering for BlackBerry

    I tried it and I didn't like it. It is not a Blackberry phone app, they just have a Web page that might have been especially formatted for the Blackberry (since there is an iPhone page too). That is very inconvenient because there is no integration with the phone's address book. I have to open the site, log in, then fill in a Web form with the two phone numbers I want to connect (including mine) every time I want to make a call. Not only that, I explored their site for one minute, clicked a link to http://BlackBerry.raketu.com and had to log in again! They never heard of cookies? No way I'm going through all that hassle to make a call.

    Thanks Vince,

    One doesn't have to roam the stacks very long to see his presence in it. He's all over the place with info, comments, etc. and other great stuff.. This site has been the greatest internet discovery I've made in years - I don't know how I had a BB for 1 1/2 years without looking for a user forum - thankfully, Pinstack was the result of my search.
