What are the most common sites that come to your mind when someone talks about International Calls? If I am not mistaken, the most popular ones are Gtalk and Skype. They have always been around to help you connect and chat with your friends and loved ones across the globe. But, they have certain disadvantages too. While Gtalk supports only users in US & Canada to make free calls, Skype requires you to buy credits for its PC to Phone voice service. Where to turn to if you want to make some free calls to your friends or relatives sitting from India? This is what today’s article is all about.
I have carefully chosen 3 methods to make free calls to people residing in both India and abroad.
Numbertank, a VOIP website proudly offers 30 minutes of free calls each day. With the credit, you are free to call any mobile number across the globe. You only need to sign up in the site and invite people you want to call on to the site only to connect with them. After you are successfully connected you may make calls and receive calls too. Once there, try to expand your network by sending invites so that you can have as many contacts as you want on Numbertank. The registration is based on Invite-Only criteria.
Here is the deal about Numbertank. It will give you 30 minutes for free calls initially. Each call can last any amount of time within the stipulated time frame. But, if you do not make use of the whole 30 minutes, the minutes will be carried over to the next day. Once you reach 100 minutes of free calls, the minutes stop accumulating. Now you will need to use up some of them to get more call minutes the next day. Overall, 1.5 hours of free calls in 3 days! Doesn’t it sound good?
A note on the quality: Many calls are clear, a few are riddled with static and fewer calls suffer from delay in transmission. Thus overall, the quality of calls is good.
Most of the times it so happens that you do not have to make lengthy calls and just need to acquire short messages but unfortunately, you do not have sufficient balance left with you. In that case Call2Friends rocks! Just connect your desktop to the Internet, go to the site and enter the country code. Make your free call in about a minute. And hey! No registration is hence required. You are allowed to make another such call after a few hours. All the locations you can call for free are listed along with the no. of seconds each call can last in the site. It offers unlimited calls for a small amount of initiation fee.
Icall is a free calling website from India for calling in US & Canada. You may either call directly from your browser or download the free Icall software and then start your calls. You can make HD Voice calls with other ICall users and call any USA or Canadian phone number from anywhere in the world with this service. It also offers free conference calls for up to 10 people. Voice mail to Text & Voice mail to E-mail for free are few of the features provided upon registration. It also offers free messaging and unlimited calls between ICall users on PC to residents in US and Canada. Icall offers an app for mobile users both iOS & Android too. Moreover, if you pay a small amount of fees you will be able to make calls to any part of the world. For a rough dry run, try their in-browser calling initially.
To sum up, these are rather quick and easy way to make free calls from the comfort of your desktop. But no guarantee is given on the quality as it may suffer from time to time. Your feedback will be highly appreciated.
