Android app for VOIP calls from Barbados to US?

Is there a free or cheap app for that?

I use GrooVe IP Lite (free version) in conjunction with my Google Voice # (also free) when traveling overseas:

Tons. The best one for you will depend somewhat on your phone model and which calling features you may require.

A few choices:

- Skype

- Fring

- TruPhone

- Google Voice

- Talkatone

- NetTalk

- JaJah

- MobileVoIP

- Viber

I've use the first four extensively from Barbados with no problems. One nice thing about Google Voice is that it integrates directly with the Android operating system and works seamlessly without going through the app itself (unlike GV on iOS) or using a third-party app. That means you can configure the GV app settings once, then make all your calls just using your phone's regular dialing interface. The others require launching an app. Check out the feature listings for several of the apps and see which one works best for you.

One great thing about the GrooVe service is that it lets you call ANY (mobile or land-line) phone in the US of CA for FREE over WiFi. No need for the call recipient to also have the service.

But as bpfife suggested, checkout the various options to see what is best suited for your needs.

One of the cheapest ways to call the US from anywhere in the world is Yelo

The App is free to download, first few calls are free too, then just topup 5 or 10 bucks and call anywhere without even touching your phone bill.

Will any of these also allow me to make local calls in Barbados?

Technically, yes. But they will be treated as international calls and won't be free. If you have an unlocked GSM phone it would be cheaper to just pick up a local Digicel or LIME SIM card and use that for making local calls. Then use your VoIP app to make calls back to the US.
