One of the things that I have greatly appreciated about my iPhone is the fact that I still have held onto my unlimited data plan since I first signed up. It still rubs me the wrong way how much you have to pay for smartphone plans now days. I get the fact that cell phone companies have to charge more because they are subsidizing the phone, but there has got to be a better solution.

I have always thought that VOIP could somehow challenge these big, corporate cell companies and make themselves competitive. When Google Voice came out, it looked like they might be able to do this. But as we have learned over the past couple of years, VOIP doesn’t look like it is ready to be a player just yet. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t developers out there that are creating some cool apps for it. Outside of Google Voice, one option isĀ SendHub. Let’s take a look at it after the jump. (more…)

One of the dilemmas I am constantly faced with is deciding whether to use my cell phone for business related phone calls. I don’t mind using it and not getting compensated for doing so, but I’m more worried about people having my number. Yet there are times when I need to get back to someone right away and I am not necessarily at my work phone or even at the office. Being that I don’t have a landline at home and my cell phone is the only means of calling someone back, I am sometimes forced to use it.

But, now there is an alternative for situations like this with an app namedĀ Burner. Somewhat similar to Google Voice, it provides you with a separate phone number that can be used from your iPhone. So now you have two numbers, which can be very handy for a variety of situations, especially with using your iPhone for work and personal calls. That, and it helps you feel like Jason Bourne.
