- Regardless of your worldwide location all calls are made as if they were local calls from Switzerland
- If you are not connected to Wi-Fi it still pays to make calls via the IPCall app since data is cheaper than voice, and there are no roaming charges
- If you receive a call to your IPCall phone number when you are away from home, you will still receive the call. The system will re-route the call automatically via normal 4G networks and you will pay only for data usage.

Security: The IP call mobile system is based on a Swiss landline connection. It is exactly the same as if you were using your home/office fixnet. Thus itis NOT an unsecured connection like experienced with social media or most other IP dialing systems.

Why using IPCall mobile cannot be compared to social media calls via Skype, Whatsapp, Viber etc.
- Apart from generally superior voice quality, an IP Mobile caller can phone FROM his mobile anywhere in the world, and can be reached ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD under the same number (ie a CH landline number) – in case of no Wi-Fi the 3G/4G networks kick in automatically.
The IPCall mobile template can actually be used for all mobile calls, irrespective of the provider. This provides great flexibility and cost advantages whilst saving whenever you are in a Wi-Fi area. When no Wi-Fi available, calls are channeled via 3G/4G. Data calls are lower cost than normal voice calls – even for calls within Switzerland.
- Calls via social media apps can simply not be compared to standard telephony as provided by PhoneWorld IP call mobile.
- Calls via social media apps may have a security issue.
Owners (like Microsoft, Google, Facebook) can hack your data and nobody really knows what they do with it.
