Yeigo

Yeigo is an exclusively Mobile VOIP service that enables free mobile calling between Yeigo users. It requires a download, but is currently available through WiFi, GPRS, EDGE or 3G services on Windows Mobile 5 and 6 phones and Symbian operated mobile phones. In addition to calling other Yeigo users for free you can use such platforms as Facebook, Skype, GoogleTalk, MSN Messenger, ICQ, AIM and Jabber to message or call for free. Calls to non-Yeigo users are not free but are similar in cost to other mobile VOIP services.

Yeigo has a real time contact availability feature which allows users to set their status, thus giving the user presence and the abilty to see who is online before you calling or messaging. Yeigo also allows users to make SimCard-less free calls.

Yeigo prides itself on call quality and claims it has minimal latency. Yeigo is an independent mVOIP application that is free of existing VOIP networks and services such as Sykpe. Competitors include JaJah, Skype, ConnectMeAnywhere, GizmoProject, barablu and others.
