Whistle Phone is an app for calling or texting your family and friends for free over Wifi or your mobile data plan.
On your own customized phone number, you can make and receive unlimited texts from high-definition and secure calls to other Whistle users. You can also make inexpensive calls to landlines and cell phones or text anyone in the US for a fraction of your regular rate when you go Premium.
And, if you need to make calls anywhere in the world, we've got extremely low rates.
Thought about using your iPad or Pod Touch as a phone? We can help you out. And we work pretty darn well on the iPhone too.
(For the iPod Touch before 4th gen, you'll need headphones and a microphone to use Whistle.)

Designed to promote fraud????
I can't find anyway to cancel my account. The whistle website is useless in providing a means to cancel the terms and agreements. The user is provided with a phone number for the app when an account is setup and there seems to be no way to cancel it and I could not find anyway to get contact info for the responsible party as I most certainly disagree to tyrants using the law for their own selfish purposes.
I am apalled that Apple does not require the terms for software contracts to be readable before downloading software especially for voip services! Why do these term conditions have to be hundreds of pages long anyways? Do they think only lawyers download apps?
What I needed was an explanation of what the software does, that I need to be in the USA to make free calls etc etc. Now I feel like I've been blackmailed into installing software before I can even find out what it does, how it works, or have the option to cancel contract terms with a single click.
I want out of this contract, software etc. Too bad it's not as easy as deleting the software to cancel all services!
I am very pissed at the liberty which some companies take! I should also have the right to easily cancel all obligations and contracts whenever I want. Too bad this isn't allowed!
I've added credit to my account three times in the last few hrs and it's not showing up in my account ... Yet money was taken from my account ... What the hell !!!!! I would like my credit restored .. I'm pissed !!!
Very bad application, & very bad quality .
I do not recommend .
