Line2 iPhone App Can Turn iPod Touch Into An iPhone, Adds Extra Phone Line To iPhone

by Mohit on October 4, 2010

Line2 app for the iPhone that was out there in March, 2010 was believed to shake the mobile industry by its inventor company Toktumi. The facts – “Toktumi spent $100,000 in new server equipment. Expanded, better trained support team. More than 100,000 phone numbers available in inventory.” So the app kept its promise.

For a meager amount of $1, this iPhone app  gives your iPhone a second phone number — a second phone line, complete with its own contacts list, voice mail, and so on. This app enables you to make/receive calls where AT&T’s signal is weak, over the Internet(Wi-Fi,3G). And yes, you can save money on your monthly phone bills.

All said and done, the main highlight of this app is that it turns an iPad or iPod Touch into a Wi-Fi iPhone. And whenever you are not in a hot spot zone, calls go to voicemail, and you get e-mail to let you know. Text messages appear as soon as you are back in a hot spot. You can return the messages and calls at that point.

The new texting feature seems to be great. Text messages(both sides) show up in little cartoon bubbles, same as it appears in the iPhone’s own texting app. However, there’s one thing to watch out for – For the time being, Line2 app does not do picture and video messages, but only text messages. (The company says it is working on it.)

Overall, the lower fee and the unlimited texting make Line2 even more attractive (and further distinguishes it from calling-only programs like Skype)

In simple words, for any Parent whose child is begging for a first cell phone or for many schools and most colleges that have a campus-wide Wi-Fi, this could be a cheap way to grant calling and texting without a two-year AT&T commitment.
