AT&T has released AT&T Call International, a new application that allows AT&T iPhone customers to place calls to and from international destinations at much lower rates than traditional mobile voice calls. AT&T customers can use the application to place calls from within the U.S. to international numbers or use the app over Wi-Fi while abroad to place calls back to the U.S. or to other countries. Call International provides rates as low as $0.02 per minute for calls to Canada and $0.04 per minute for calls to landlines in China, France, Germany and the U.K. Regular airtime rates and a “small amount of domestic data usage” also apply when placing a call from within the U.S. over the AT&T 3G network. AT&T Call International is available from the U.S. App Store as a free download. [via Engadget]
