Free calls to and from Pakistan : Connect2Pk

A lot has been discussed about making Free calls to India (tuitalk), however we have seen that rates to Pakistan have fluctuated (actually increased) in the past one year.

At present, call rates to Pakistan are very high (many voip providers offering rates greater than 10 cents). But we have found a solution so that one can make Free calls from Pakistan and yes by following some steps "Free calls to Pakistan" (actually you can connect to your friends in Pakistan).

Connect2Pk.com offers Free calls from Pakistan. Its a 'Phone to PC' & 'PC to PC' call solution. Connect2Pk offers local Pakistan phone numbers (Karachi, Islamabad etc) dialing which you can connect to the person on PC application. So, if you register with Pakistan phone number (your loved one) and ask them to dial the Pakistan local phone number (Connect2pk number) then this call will be forwarded to your PC application. (So your loved one is on Phone and you on your PC).

I know the above discussion seems very complicated, but let me try to put this in simple steps.

  • Assuming that you are living in USA and you want to talk to your Parents living in Pakistan.
  • Assuming that your Parents have either a landline phone or a mobile phone. And you have a PC with broadband phone.

Steps for free calls to Pakistan -:

1. Register with Connect2Pk.com

Enter Your name, email address (correct) and password.
Now in the Mapped number field (enter your Parents Pakistan number).

2. Download their PC application (it is nothing but x-lite). You can also configure fring to receive calls directly on your mobile phone. You will get SIP settings in your email.

SIP settings -:
Display Name - Connect2Pk
USername -: Your username
Password -: Your password
Domain -: connect2pk.com:5065

3. Now ask your parents to call local Pakistan Connect2pk numbers. Any one of the local access numbers which is cheap or free for your parents in Pakistan. Any of following numbers.

• 021-7016586 (Karachi)
• 041-5529224 (Faisalabad)
• 042-2008625 (Lahore)
• 051-7185152 (Islamabad) new!

4. Now the question is how will your parents know to call this number. (Hey you have to tell them...!! either fix daily time or adjust accordingly, I am sure this you can manage).

5. You will receive a phone call directly to x-lite configured phone or your mobile (if you configures fring).

Few more points to be noticed here are -:
  • 20min/call, round the clock!
  • 4-10am, 45min/call
So, this way you can connect to your loved ones in Pakistan for free. The only cost being your friends/relatives(living in Pakistan) calling to Pakistan local number (this charge will most probably very cheap or it may be free (mobile cap minutes)).

For more info, you may refer to Connect2pk (do check their FAQ section). You may also post their queries in comment section of this blog.

PS: The above calling procedure ain't mentioned on their website, however the one I mentioned should work good for you. If anyone of you have used connect2pk before, then please post your reviews and correct me if I am wrong in giving calling procedure details.
