Very big disadvantage is, it doesn't let you know whether the receiver is offline or not reachable or busy . Irrespective of these status , it keeps ringing and doesn't have conference call facility while other apps like Skype have. It is very difficult to find whether the call reaching to other person or not without knowing the status. Please fix it otherwise, this app doesn't make sense.
Updated: voice quality improved, now they can hear my voice...though what I don't like is that it doesn't tell you if it's really ringing or out of coverage/turned off...fake ring
I have found this app very useful for calling my friends and family in other countries. The cost of the phone calls are also quite reasonable.
I like Rebtel a lot. Cheap calls to family and friends! I have a long history of using it with my ex-girlfriend who even wrote an article about why she was using Rebtel. What I do not like about Rebtel is the 'fake' ring that happens when I try to call friends and fail but still get charged for it. I understand that we live in the time of crony capitalism, so you can charge me all you want for the ring as long as you still connect me with the person I want to talk to. I will be fine with that, but wont be fine being charged for a 14 seconds ring!
It says no Internet connection needed but yet I can't make calls without having data. Not cool
App was great. Easy to call. But a small suggestion, would be great if we have an option to call international calls use rebtel always instead of asking Everytime.
