Has anyone been successful at getting Truphone to work over 3G? Works flawlessly over my wi-fi, but have yet to have it work over 3G. Wondering if it's a limitation of Truphone, or have Rogers been able to block it? Or maybe it's against Truphone's EULA?

Nevermind, answered this for myself:

Truphone's VoIP app dials up iPhone | News - Wireless - CNET News.com (http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-9989269-94.html)

"On the Nokia phones, Truphone usage isn't limited to Wi-Fi spots, but can also work over 3G. So far, this isn't possible with the iPhone.
"

Hopefully an update will be forthcoming, unless Apple or Rogers block it.

Apple has stated they will not allow VOIP over 3G (most likely protecting AT&T/etc). So, the only way would be if someone enables as a jailbroken app.

Truephone works only wifi as an alternative to your mobile provider.
