MacDailyNews Take: Behold the power of Apple, where even App Store approval – before the app is even ready for sale – warrants a press release.

    With the 2nd gen touch, yes you can with a pair of iPhone headphones.

    I use trufone on my US iPhone in japan, and calling local us numbers is cheap-as-free, and calling japanese numbers is 10 cents a min, much better than the ATT roam rate of 3 bucks a minute.

    I would gladly setup a vonnage account for a fee to get a Japanese number until I activate my iPhone here somehow on softbank.

  2. What’s not clear is if this will work on the 3G signal, or, like Skype, just on WiFi.

    And if it doesn’t have push notification, it’s pretty worthless. The only way Skype works is if it’s active. Otherwise, you can’t receive phone calls. I hope Vonage works better, but we’ll see.
