Try Raketu
I have tried several of these services, and some with great success. I have also discovered Raketu, which works on mobile and laptop. Raketu provides device to phone calling, phone to phone calling, texting, IM and even saves my pics and I can share them with others. I have an iPhone and WinMobile mobiles and it works great on both, and they have a symbian, blackberry and android version also. I also tried out their SIP service, which allows me to use any SIP software on my mobile (or a SIP phone for that matter) to connect to the service - I tried Fring, SIPgate and SJPhone with Raketu and it worked great. Best thing is the lowest cost and great quality. Try it out, Raketu.com, or mobile Raketu.mobi - saves me money.
