AT&T announced the availability of a new application today called AT&T Call International. This application allows AT&T smartphones to make VoIP-based calls over Wi-Fi to international numbers at low/reduced rates. The application also works abroad, and will let AT&T smartphone customers make calls from foreign countries to the U.S. via Wi-Fi for rates that are lower than its standard roaming cellular voice minutes. The application itself is free to download, and is available from the Android Market, BlackBerry App World, and the iPhone App Store. Calling rates vary by country, and are billed directly to customers' credit cards.

And, since calls from your Google Voice number to other U.S. numbers are free, you won't have to pay to call back home when you're overseas.
International roaming charges are based on what network you're using when you make/receive a call, not what number you called. If you making a call while roaming overseas, you will pay international roaming charges.

At least it is something you can download and choose to use (or not use). Better than loading this on phones by default. The way to be competitive is to offer something that has value. Some of the rates to certain countries are the best I've seen arou...
