Maybe it is because apps can't run in the background (which they can on Symbian and Android).
Having a VoIP experience where you can not receive calls is half a VoIP experience.

Right, AT&T announced. Apple has yet to change their Terms and Conditio ns so the apps are not capable yet. AT&T really never blocked Vo3G, as it worked on Symbian devices for a while now.

I hope this clarifies the point.

I cannot agree with more with you here....at times it even looks like AT&T is taking Apple for a ride. I guess the sooner Apple realizes that they do not need the crutches any more, the better it is for them in the long run. Somewhat related to what you say here, read why Apple cannot sit back on 100,000 apps?

A month ago Apple and AT&T announced a change in this policy. Apps can now do VoIP calls over 3G:

So I don't understand what the issue is here?
