The WiSIP Mobile IP Phone from Pulver Innovations is now available through BroadVoice. This next generation intelligent IP Communications device adds SIP based VoIP communications over a WiFi network. Considering this is the first WiSIP phone to hit the market, we can expect a monthly service fee until other companies release similar products. A similar service is offered free through FreeWorld Dialup, however obtaining one of these WiSIP handsets is not likely to happen without a BroadVoice service plan.
In the meantime, BroadVoice is asking $9.95 a month for unlimited In-State calls, and $19.95 a month for unlimited USA calls after purchasing the phone for $149.95. BroadView mentions that the new Pulver WiSIP Mobile IP Phone has been optimized for the BroadVoice service which could mean it is locked to their network.
BroadVoice customers can choose a direct-dial telephone number from any of the 30 states and 1,300 cities and towns the company currently offers, regardless of the user’s geographic location. All BroadVoice accounts come with voicemail, caller ID, call waiting and a suite of 21 other advanced calling features (more than any other VoIP provider) at no additional charge. All features are available through the company’s interactive communications portal.
