AT&T: Announcing VoIP Over 3G For iPhone Tomorrow at CTIA

CTIA is a wireless conference in San Diego.In attendance will be key AT&T executives, two of which are slated to give keynote speeches. The word on the street was that AT&T will announce that Skype and Google Voice will run on their network via the iPhone.

A source of Washington Post says that the debating is still in process at AT&T and the executives have been contemplating “the decision for weeks and … have said they were close to accepting voice over Internet services on all AT&T phones, including the iPhone.”.

Meanwhile the AT&T confirms that its network is ready for VoIP. In a statement, they write, “AT&T* today announced it has taken the steps necessary so that Apple can enable VoIP applications on iPhone to run on AT&T’s wireless network. Previously, VoIP applications on iPhone were enabled for Wi-Fi connectivity.” The ball, it would seem, is now officially in Apple’s court.

This means that no tree grows to the sky, and nobody care that you are Apple or AT&T. It seems that the FCC investigations brought a lot of pressure on both companies shoulders and they are finally ( even if they dont want to ) doing the right thing – at least for us.

LATER EDIT:

Dont be to happy about it. RIGHT NOW, Google Voice is not VoIP. Currently, Google Voice requires that you have another, actual phone line that you can place and receive calls from. it could do VoIP eventually, but right now it isn’t.
