Today's technology of telecommunication is showing a way towards the future. You do not need a phone to make phone calls anymore, all you need is the appropriate device, internet connection and support. This article and video will give you a detailed explanation about it.
You can use several applications on either your smartphone or your personal computer, if you would like to make calls on the Internet. The most well-known such applications are Google Voice, iCall, Eva Phone, Skype, Yahoo! Messenger and Windows Live Messenger as you can see then in Figure 1, and you can get to know more about them later in this article.
Figure 1 - Phone Calls on the Internet explained
Free internet calls can be made on your fixed line, mobile device or computer (PC).
PSTN phones can be called from your PC with the help of certain internet programs. All you need to do is to download software that allows you to make free phone calls or a softphone can also be used from an internet provider website.
The only catch is that these calls cannot be used for emergency calls. You will need VoIP service to make such a call.
Most popular programs:
Google Voice: You can make phone calls, PC to PC calls and PC to phone calls as well, and they are all for free if you have Google Talk browser plugin. Features: manages your phone numbers, free SMS, voicemail and conference call, routes incoming calls to your free Google Voice phone number. PC to Phone calls are only free if the dialled number is in the US or Canada. Calls are free for three hours, then it needs to be ended and you can redial as many times as you wish.
iCall: Just like with Google Voice, the call is only free if the destination number is in the US or in Canada. It is available as a free iPhone application and as a free desktop application for Mac OS, Linux or Windows. Calls can be five-minute-long, and the number of the calls are not limited here either, but every time you make a call a ten-second-long advertisement will be played to you.
Eva Phone: This interface is based on flash, and you can call nearly anyone in the world with it. Its only catch is that calls are terminated in at most sixty seconds, and the number of the calls are limited to twice a day. Every time you make a call you have to watch a short advertisement, then the countdown timer appears to show you how much time you have left from the conversation. If you must tell something very fast without phone and you do not care about the quality then Eva Phone is the best choice.
Free PC to PC Phone Calls
Yahoo! and Windows Live Messenger These programs were originally designed for instant messaging, but by now voice and video calls have been added to them. Their only problem is that their video and sound quality is a lot worse that that of Skype. So, if you have one of these programs then you can talk to the person in front of his or her PC or Cell Phone for free if he or she also has the same program as you do.
