Toktumi Line2 for iPhone Delivers VOIP and SMS over WiFi When AT&T Fails

by Andrew Garcia
Line2 from Toktumi, a VOIP (voice over IP) app for Apple iPhone, delivers outstanding voice quality and good SMS text messaging capability to the iOS smartphone. Leveraging either WiFi or 3G data services to deliver its calling services, Line2 provides a full second mobile telephone line to iPhone users for those all-too-common times when the AT&T network fails to serve and promises unlimited calling and texting within the United States and Canada. Users may find the $10-per-month cost slightly prohibitive, given Line2 service works only on the iPhone, not on a PC, Mac or other device. However, the application is free to download from the Apple App Store and it comes with a 30-day trial to test out the service. Also, Toktumi offers a more complete hosted PBX service to use with multiple devices, with a price starting at $15 a month.
