Apr 19, 2011 Chat With Your Guild Using the Mobile Armory
A new feature has just been added to the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app: remote Guild Chat! As part of the latest update for the free Mobile Armory app for the iPhone and iPod touch, the new Guild Chat feature lets you stay in touch with your guildmates wherever you go:
  • Read and contribute to your guild's in-game chat channel in real time
  • Participate in one-on-one conversations with members of your guild
  • View the members of your guild who are currently online
For a limited time, players can use the Guild Chat feature without a subscription to World of Warcraft Remote. During this time, we'll be rolling out the Guild Chat feature to select realms, with more realms being added in the future -- check out this forum post to see if the feature is currently available on your realm. After the free preview period ends, players will need to have a subscription to World of Warcraft Remote in order to continue using the feature. We'll announce the end of the free preview period, along with the availability of the feature on Android devices, in the near future -- keep an eye on the official World of Warcraft website for further details.

The World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app is available as a free download from the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch.
