Vonage Extensions – Pair Your Smartphones With Your Vonage Number

November 22, 2013 · Filed Under VoIP News, VoIP Providers, Vonage · Comment 

Vonage Extensions

Vonage has a new mobiel phone app called Extensions which allows you to connect as many as two smartphones with one Vonage call package. This means you can

  • Make unlimited calls using your smartphone as part of your Vonage home calling plan at no additional charge.
  • Use the Extensions app for Android or iPhone using your Wi-Fi connection or over a 3G mobile network.
  • Connect a maximum of two Extensions to one Vonage line for absolutely no cost whatsoever and once you have done that you can enjoy unlimited calling depending on your Vonage plan and where you are calling.

> Click here to signup for Vonage

Three simple steps for connecting your plan:

  1. If you are currently not a Vonage customer, then choose a calling plan and sign up today.
  2. Download the Vonage Extensions app from Google Play or iTunes
  3. Simply follow the instructions in the app to link your smartphones to your Vonage account

You can now make unlimited calls through Vonage from your smartphone!

Using the Extensions App

  • If you want to make a call using your smartphone launch the Extensions app and dial the number from your address book which can be accessed via the app.
  • If you want to take advantage of Extensions then you will have to have a UK Vonage phone number and an Android Phone running 2.2 or above. Alternatively you can use Extensions with an iPhone as well so long as it is running iOS 4.3 or higher.
  • You can use Vonage Extensions on all plans except the India 400 and Pakistan 100. Other plans the app is not available for are the Residential UK200 anytime minutes, Residential UK 100 anytime minutes and Residential 0 minute plan.
  • Whilst you can make calls using your smartphone with Vonage Extensions, the only way to receive calls is if you forward them from your Vonage number to your smartphone.

Remember when making a call using your smartphone you will be levied a data charge by your network carrier if you use their networks to make the call. If your smartphone is on Wi-Fi then there will be no additional data charges so all you need to do is open the app and dial the required number. If you are travelling internationally and want to use the app on a 3G or 4G network you will again be levied with a roaming charge so you should check what this is with your network operator.

If you call family friends or business contacts using your Vonage Extensions app they will see your mobile phone number pop up on the incoming call so they can call you back as normal. The app utilises the address book that is on your smartphone so there really is seamless integration.

Evolution of Business Infographic – How New Technology is Helping Small and Home Businesses

September 12, 2013 · Filed Under VoIP Guides, VoIP Providers, Vonage · Comment 

Most managers tend to have a traditional view of business expecting employees to sit in large open plan offices in close proximity to colleagues and with a mass of cables concealed by desks and carpeting. The internet turned the traditional notion on its head. Employees can literally now work from anywhere in the world and it’s never been easier for customers and clients to get in contact. Email has meant that outsourcing work has become increasingly viable.

People working from home can now have a dedicated telephone line which runs over the internet and enables them to keep their work life separate from their personal life. VoIP telephony from companies like Vonage VoIP allow small companies or those working from home offices to cut their telephone bills drastically. Users also have the benefit of knowing what their monthly phone bill and can take advantage of a range of features.

Smart phones mean SOHO (Small Office Home Office) workers can literally be reached anywhere and Wi-Fi means that work can continue anywhere in the house or office when disturbed. Video conferencing is now increasingly reliable and is proving to be the must have tool for many offices who deal with clients or customers around the world.

The new UK office is likely to be a single room in the house with wireless equipment such as laptop, printer and internet enabled phone line.

Vonage VoIP Unveils Full Fledged Alternative To Mobile Phone Plans

January 13, 2012 · Filed Under VoIP News, Vonage · Comment 

Vonage VoIP unveiled some of its future expansion strategies at this week’s Citi Entertainment and Telecommunications Conference.

Vonage VoIP chief executive Mark Lefar highlighted his company’s new mobile applications, which are not yet available to the consumer, but will eventually enable them to make free calls to other Vonage subscribers globally, as well as incorporate its own messaging platform, and calling plans.

Whilst the new product is highly similar to the offering from rival provider Skype, Mr. Lefar said that Vonage’s offering would be priced roughly 30% cheaper than that of its rival. Mr. Lefar also pointed out that Skype was not designed to be a full fledged alternative to mobile carriers, whilst the Voange app for mobile devices seamlessly taps into the smartphone contact list, and offers a much smoother interface.

“Skype is heavily invested in the Skype user name, while Vonage depends on tried-and-true phone numbers.” Mr. Lefar said.

Mr. Lefar added that MagicJack was the only iOS app that did not concern the VoIP provider.

“Our product testing would suggest that it’s nowhere close to same quality that we have, but for folks who are looking for a cheap alternative, but don’t care about 911 services, that are not as concerned about reliability, it’s certainly an alternative.”

According to Mr. Lefar, Vonage VoIP’s offering is a unique all in one communication tool.

Not all of Vonage’s major initiatives have panned out, with Lefar admitting the company spent way to much energy on its Facebook offering.

“There is a certain kind of distance that people want to keep from those individuals and their contacts, and Facebook friends are not the folks that folks want to call on a regular basis via voice. That’s why the bog-standard phone numbers are so important in the mobile apps — make Vonage behave like a regular cell phone and people will use it accordingly.”

Vonage’s new product should keep executives at all the major telcos up at night, since VoIP offerings tend to bypass their revenue model of airtime minutes, replacing it instead with a small volume of data traffic.

“You could be taking over 1,000 minutes a month over VoIP and still be using only a couple of megabytes.So the telecoms don’t even get to replace lost airtime revenues with large 3G or 4G packages — users will get by with a less generous data plan.”

Vonage Announces The Launch Of New ‘Extensions’ Service

November 15, 2011 · Filed Under VoIP News, Vonage · Comment 

Vonage VoIP has announced the launch of a program it calls Extensions, which enable residential users of the service register a second phone to their Vonage account for no charge, and place outgoing phone calls using that phone.

The second phone could be any telephone including a business phone, with Extensions being designed to accommodate many customers using their mobile phone devices as their second phone. With this in mind Vonage has said that it will quickly introduce iPhone and Android applications.

Vonage describes Extensions as “breaking beyond the four walls of the home” which will make its VoIP service independent of the home telephone, with the company stressing the convenience of Extensions and the fact that users of Vonage World service can make calls to over 60 countries from their mobile device much cheaper than the cost of making the same call using their wireless carrier.

“This new service dramatically increases the value of Vonage’s core offering, providing customers with more flexibility and savings when making international calls,” said CEO Marc Lefar, in a statement.

“We have observed a trend prior to launching Extensions that led us to believe our customers would embrace this,” Tempora continued. “From data we have, we know that more than 50 percent of international calls in the U.S. are made from a mobile phone, so it made sense that our customers would want to do this.”

Facebook Adds VoIP Video Chat Functionality To Platform

July 11, 2011 · Filed Under VoIP News, Vonage · Comment 

Facebook the dominant online social networking platform is intensifying its competition with Google by offering a free VoIP video chat service similar to Vonage VoIP.

The introduction of the video chat function is designed in large part to fend off the threat from Google which recently incorporated that feature into its social network as an alternative to FaceTime for Apple’s iPhone.

Facebook also unveiled a multi-person chat feature that lets several people hold online conversations at the same time.

“We’re using the best technology that’s out there for doing video chat with the best social infrastructure that’s out there in order to create some really cool new scenarios,” Zuckerberg said during a presentation at the event.

Facebook’s video chat offering makes use of technology from Skype which is Vonage VoIP’s rival, which itself has been the target of an acquisition by Microsoft who agreed to buy the company in May.

“This is a really strategic long term deal between Skype and Facebook,” said Neil Stevens, vice president and general manager for consumer at Skype, in an interview with Bloomberg Television. “This isn’t just a one shot one deal implementation of a product. This is a long term relationship.”

Google’s new site, called Google+, includes Google’s maps and images, messages, comments and other content from selected groups of friends, as well as a video chat feature.

Microsoft, based in Redmond, Washington, invested $240 million in Facebook in 2007 and entered an agreement to sell ads on the social network.
