VoIP is the abbreviation for Voice over Internet Protocol and this works by changing an analog audio signal emanating from a source, into digital signals. This signal is transmitted from its source using the internet, to its destination. VoIP apps use your 2G mobile internet connection to transmit signal, this is completely different from a traditional telephone which transmits a signal through a physical connection. Below are some VoIP apps that work well on a 2G EDGE network.
