Re: More like De-Evolution

Using more spectrum, via your wireless broadband connection, to make the same phone call, simply to escape cellphone minute charges, seems rather backward to me.

Call it whatever you want. I would much rather be able to use a data package over my phone and make call over data and not pay for minutes at all.

Would save me a lot of money.

Until the carriers catch up with monetizing the emerging technology

That's the first iteration. They'll eventually come up with a way to monetize you using VoIP over WiFi in lieu of consuming your allotment of voice dialing from your carrier.

I don't really see how. Voice takes up a very tiny amount of data and I don't see how they could possibly restrict it.

Just goes to show how cheaply carriers could process voice if they had proper motivation.

My guess is that it will be a combination of indirect methods as well as continuing to require some tier of voice minutes with mobile phone plans...or maybe even all data plans
