AT&T Enables VoIP over 3G for the iPhone

AT&T has announced that its network is now ready to support voice over IP (VoIP) apps on the iPhone over its 3G network. Previously, VoIP apps were only useable on Wi-Fi networks, but AT&T has now given the green light to Apple to approve VoIP apps that work over its cellular network as well.

This means that apps such as Skype, which has been limited only to chat when connected to AT&T’s network, will now have full voice functionality when connected to the cellular network.

Some speculated that this means AT&T and Apple are preparing to approve Google Voice apps, but this announcement is not likely to have any affect on the status of Google Voice on the iPhone because GV is not a VoIP app.
