Who uses Whistle ?

  • International Callers calling the United States

  • Domestic Callers looking to save on expensive landline and cell phone bills

  • Anyone looking for one number as a point of contact.

  • iPod Touch and iPad users looking to turn that device into a simple and easy to use phone


    I just installed the free Whistle app on my iPad and I can make free calls. The catch is I have to listen to an audio advertising before connecting the call. My wife called my Whistle number, which I didn't get to choose and has a Mississippi area code, and she got through without any ads. i tried to call it myself several times and it kept saying it was not able to reach the party. This happened whether i was in the app or out of it. Not sure it the the first call was a one time complimentary call. I will try this in the wild and will attempt to associate my Google Voice number with it.

    Whistle doesn't quite make your iPad like a Big iPhone because it still doesn't have a camera. Without Whistle, it is still not like a big iPod Touch because the iPod Touch doesn't have Bluetooth. Face it, the iPad holds it's own as a unique handheld computer that anyone is holds it loves it.
