*No calls possible on WiFi or 3G* Since I changed my phone and reinstalled this app, I can not make any call using WiFi or 3G connection from Android app. I have tried to use 'Route A' as well as 'Route B' but no use. I can make calls using local numbers though but that's not what I want. Otherwise the service is very useful but it's app always has some issues. Once they are resolved, will rate it for 5 stars. *Note:* Probably this could be an issue with latest Android 6.0 which is installed on my phone.
Wow I been using this for three years. And alot of the times my minutes go by me placing the calls that arent even connecting to the contact. Its cool because its cheap but not really worth it if half of the time it doesnt connect to the person your trying to call. And it drains your money when you keep trying. But in reality the person isnt receiving your calls.
App is poor, Call prices are good, call quality is ok-ish. I've used Localphone for years. Although call quality is rarely excellent, it is mostly usable. (Call centres sometimes can't understand). However, this App is poor - on the 3 android devices I use. I have to log in fully when I open the App. Ie. It takes a few minutes to send a quick text or make a quick call. A workaround would be for the App to remember my login or my phone number (or anything!). Additionally contact management is poor, editing the numbers manually before dialling is very clunky. This App has such transformative potential. Do the employees actually use their App? Are they passionate about it? Nah - probably not.
Used to be good I keep looking to see if there's an update for this app. I've been using it for 2.5 years and it used to be great. Now it rarely connects. Little point keeping this - though I have a vague hope it will come good. In the meantime I'm going to go and find an alternative service and keep my eyes peeled for that illusive update.
Very good Calls work over 3G and WiFi, SMS fine too. Call quality can never be perfect over 3G but that's not the apps fault. Very pleased with it. Remember localphone is possibly the only VoIP provider that allows you to set any verified phone as the caller ID. So calling from the app shows my office number. Mobile stays private.
Calling from the app no longer works on newer versions of Android and hasnt been updated in 4 years. Contacted their support and they dont seem to care. I was basically told that I have to accept it or go somewhere else. Their rates are good but they dont care about their service or customers and therefore wont be getting any more business from me.
- Additional WiFi/3G calling mode for troubleshooting past calling issues
