VoLTE

Voice over LTE essentially is voip.

The carriers FEAR becoming just a WISP. If you could choose from any VoIP provider, they become just a dumb pipe.

I took advantage of the deal T-Mobile has out right now to attract new activations. Pre-paid monthly 4G $30 5gb plan. Comes with 100 voice and unlimited SMS/MMS. After that it's ten cents a minute.

Combine that with Google Voice + Sipdroid + pbxes.org for free VoIP. For personal use it works ok on 3G, good on 4G and great on WiFi.

Looking at VOIP.MS as a long term provider since GV lacks native sip support and codec choices. The GV sip work around adds latency and at best is experimental. It really is cool, since it's free.

Hey, thanks for this tip. I have it up and running on my Bionic.

What are the limitations on inbound/outbound calling?

I use voip.ms with sipdroid. Works well and is really powerful. Only thing GV does better is the voicemail if you like visual voicemail.

How is pbxes.org? I've read some not so good stuff in the past. I've got GrooVeIP on my DX. It seems to work ok for what it's doing.

Thanks for the feedback. GV is working but I feel the latency could be better if I pony up for the paid service from voip.ms

My free account on pbxes.org is stable. Using GV as a trunk has its limitations since GV is not intended to be used this way!

That isn't going to happen IMO. From the early testing of carrier side VoLTE, there's going to be significantly better QoS on the carrier side. Sure, OOT VoIP solutions like Skype might save some money on minutes but in the end it will not have the battery life or QoS that carrier side VoLTE boosted by HD Voice will offer. The real issue the carriers face is meeting demand on the data side. That's going to be a challenge, one that will require a lot more spectrum acquisition.
