This article relates to the new version 3 of the Vumber iOS and Android apps.

When you use the new Vumber iOS or Android app for iPhone to make an outbound call, you now have the choice to send the calls over

  1. your normal phone line, or 
  2. WiFi/your carrier's data connection using Voice over IP (VoIP)

By default, calls will be made over your normal cell phone line.

Using your normal phone line will have the following advantages:

1) Better call quality, especially if your traveling by car etc.

2) Calls will not be interrupted when other calls arrive.

3) Calls will not use eat into your data plan.
