Skype first introduced us to free computer video calls, and the company is now offering free mobile calls via its Skype Mobile service. Skype Mobile works with several different smartphones, and it's free if you're talking to someone else who's also signed up for that service.
Another way to get free wireless is on the new iPad. "Whistle," a new application for the iPad, essentially turns your iPad into a cell phone. Instead of connecting to the Web wirelessly, you can connect and make phone calls. Use it with a Bluetooth earphone and you're good to go.
