T-Mobile To Relaunch Bobsled VoIP Platform For Facebook Next Week

The T-Mobile announcement of Bobsled, an application for Facebook that enabled users to place calls through Facebook chat was launch seemingly out of nowhere and taken down just as quickly. After a mixup with Facebook and users confusing Bobsled an official Facebook application T-Mobile took Bobsled down late last April.

“We are voluntarily and temporarily suspending the Bobsled service as we work with our partners at Facebook to address their design questions, including working to ensure that the Bobsled experience is clearly differentiated and is not mistaken for a Facebook created property,”

Dow Jones is reporting that T-Mobile has made some necessary changes to Bobsled but declined to comment on any specifics. T-Mobile is still planning on moving forward with plans to introduce additional Bobsled features such as video chat and access through smartphones. Voip-Info.org has more.

          Lesson for Ashley: When someone is poking fun at you, don’t correct their spelling.

          If someone’s going to poke fun, they could at least spell their own stupid phrase correctly.
          Keep trollin guys.

    I don’t get the point of this…just pick up the phone in your pocket. IMO non video internet calls are kinda awkward
