show user profile  STRAT

with all today's voip technology and stuff, is there anyway i can make free phonecalls from my computer to a normal land line? i know i can call free from voip to voip, but there must be a way of calling, say my parents on their normal land line via my pc?

Sure this is possible!!! And this is really great! =D

I`v tested it here, and works 100%! The only thing you can`t with the program I`v tested, is to call from your computer to mobilephones, only to the telephone connected to a network.... =) 2 sec, I`ll find the program for you..

(sorry for not using edit button)

And what I noticed now, in USA, it seemes like you can call to mobilephones too! =D I`m from norway, doh.. But works on regular phones here... =)

(now i used the edit button =D)
And yes, it`s 100% free to most countries... :) You CAN donate too, but click no... =) Test it, and let me know what you think of it.. =) Maybe many others will try it too =)

yup, but doing uber tests, works a treat. got a couple of numbers that were unrecognised, but nothing major.

also, use headphones and not general speakers, else the guy on the other end can hear himself looping back into the microphone from your end giving himself an echo.

Ok just downloaded it, and even though im in croatia thats not on a list, my phone rang.
I'm always sceptical about this kind of things, so please ease my mind. Is there any way they can. lets say, make a collect call to my phone and charge my phone bill?

And it says free calls are limited to 1 minute (never tried, didn't want to answer cuz of my paranoia), and to make it longer you need to "top up" your account. So how's it free then?

i dont realy see the benefit of this unless you're a company that handles ALOT of international busniess by phone...

to the ordinary cityzen that makes 5 long distances a month i don't think it's that relevant...

my 2 cents heh =)

Thats why I ask if they can call collect anyhow, and bill the one you're calling. Does anybody know?

@maddog : What about regular calls? No phone bill at all if this works

No, it says it`s free, therefor they cant charge you anything. As long as you never enter any information like your address, and that stuff, they cant send you any bills. =) And dont make any donations.... =) Just simply use it for free! ;)
