What is Truphone?Truphone provides telephone services using its internet-based telephone network. Truphone allows you to make iPhone calls via the internet which means that you can make INTERNATIONAL calls at LOCAL rates because most of the routing is done on Truphones internet-based network. Connecting to the Truphone network is seamless.via a Wi-Fi connection or, if you are not in a Wi-Fi area, via a normal iPhone call (via your service provider) using the new Truphone Anywhere feature (Please Note: Calls are not possible via your 3G connection). Truphone always tries Wi-Fi first. Once you install the Truphone application on your iPhone, and complete the quick account set up stage, you are ready to make calls.
