Who Can You Call with Your iPhone, iPod Touch and Epic?-(Smartphone Update #7)

Dr. Z in his travels gets this question all the time, so he is hoping this information will be useful. It tells you which mobile phones can communicate with other phones. This is only for the 3 phones that ZVRS supports with their app as well as Tango.

Apple iPhone 4

  • iPhone 4 (using FaceTime)
  • iPod Touch (using FaceTime)
  • Apple Mac (using FaceTime)
  • Samsung Epic (using downloaded Tango software)
  • ZVRS interpreter for relay calls (using downloaded ZVRS app)

Apple iPod Touch

  • iPhone 4 (using FaceTime)
  • iPod Touch (using FaceTime)
  • Apple Mac (using FaceTime)
  • ZVRS interpreter for relay calls (using downloaded ZVRS app)

Samsung Epic

  • iPhone 4 (using downloaded Tango software)
  • Apple Mac (using Z4 software downloaded to a Mac and downloaded Z4 Mobile to an Epic)
  • any PC with a webcam (using Z4 software downloaded to a PC and downloaded Z4 Mobile to an Epic)
  • any videophone (Z150, Z340, ZOjo, VP200, P3) (using downloaded Z4 Mobile app)
  • ZVRS interpreter for relay calls (using downloaded Z4 Mobile app)

Note: The Z4 Mobile app for the Samsung Epic should be released in a few weeks.

It is expected that over time the Apple products (iPhone4, iPod Touch) will be able to call other videophones. Apple has not yet released the specifications for their FaceTime software to make it possible to call other videophones.

Dr. Z cares about your communication access.

Disclosure: Dr. Z is a contractor working with CSDVRS on several projects.
