Smartphones and cellphones on the market are intended to be used with a carrier through prepaid or monthly plans, but the 'WiPhone' takes things in a decidedly different direction. The device is designed to work with VoIP and SIP calling to allow for free calls over WiFi networks instead of requiring users to sign up with a carrier to start making voice calls. This enables users to purchase the device and be completely free of restrictive limitations like contracts that usually come with cellphones and smartphones.

The 'WiPhone' also features a design that can be easily modified, hacked and repurposed according to needs, which makes it ideal for makers and hackers seeking a more personalized experience.
