SmartVoip : Lowest call rates to India by SmartVoip.com

Betamax is really taking the lead in this voip race to provide cheap calls to India. Betamax understand the potential trapped in the Indian Voip market (the large number of phone calls made to Indian numbers) and does not want to loose any chance to cash on this. And that is the reason, Betamax has launched another Voip provider : SmartVoip !

Few days back, Betamax launched its ActionVoip service which offered very cheap calls to India. Yeah the price offered was the cheapest in the voip market. Their calling price to India landline is just $0.007 (that is .7 cents) and to Indian mobiles as 1.3 cents/minute. A large number of people subscribed to this plan offered by ActionVoip and have been their satisfactory customers.

Now to capture more of the market share, another betamax named SmartVoip (this voip provider too gained lot of popularity in short time) has further lowered the calling rates to call India.

Calling Rates Offered by SmartVoip

SmartVoip is offering flat .7 cents per minute to Indian landline and mobiles. (man this is lower than one cent, less than 50 paisa lol.).

I remember the day when we discussed that voip rates to India will be less than 1 cent and day is a reality now with voip providers started to offering such cheap calls to India.

And best of all, you can call several popular destinations for FREE! (check the list on their website to find which destination you can make free calls to). You can also call all your friends who have also download SmartVoip for free, using PC to PC calls!

So whats the latest cheapest rate to call India. Its .7 cents per minute ($0.007) to both Indian mobiles and landlines offered by SmartVoip.

Now with betamax you can either Download SmartVoip softphone (PC application to make Pc to Phone calls) or you can use SIP to make Phone to Phone calls. You can now also try SmartVoip on your iPhone, SmartVoip Android Application or SmartVoip Mac app for your Mac!

Again : SmartVoip rates are very cheap, so if you are looking for cheapest voip provider then SmartVoip is worth trying.

SmartVoip SIP Settings :

SIP port : 5060
Registrar : sip.smartvoip.com
Proxy server : sip.smartvoip.com
Outbound proxy server : leave empty
Account name : your SmartVoip username
Password : your SmartVoip password
Display name/number : your SmartVoip username or voipnumber
Stunserver (option) : stun.smartvoip.com

SmartVoip also offers local access numbers. You can choose your country, get a local access number. Now dial this number and the international number and your call will get connected. This way it works similar to a calling card. Another good option if you prefer to make Phone to Phone calls thus eliminating the need to remain connected to a PC.

Its time to checkout SmartVoip Calling Service (aka SmartVoip Calling Card ). Please share your views and feedback on SmartVoip. If you face any problems regarding SmartVoip, please let us know : may be we can help out!

Etisalat had even blocked the Hotspot sheild which is very frustating...... this is really pissing off everyone.
Is there any other optimal solution to use any of these VoIP services?

Hi,

I recently became member of SmartVoip.Call rates to India was 0.005 euro/call.but now the rate has been increased to 0.007euro.I heard that rates may down/even free call also but there is no chance of more rates.But now SV increased call rates to India.In future it's going to increase more or constant rate or rates are going to come down??.....If it's increased it's burdon for users!!!

Hoping for 0.005 again,

I am using SmartVoip for a week now and voice quality is very good. But they are increasing rates every week I guess. Its been just a week and they increased the rate to $0.013, with VAT its $0.016. They will lose the advantage if it goes to 2 cents a minute.

As you said: "And best of all, you can call several popular destinations for FREE!" - it's true ONLY during FREE DAYS time period, otherwise they charge for those so called "Free Destinations" at the rates NOT known in advance until one runs out all the free days (such rates are not listed on their web site either), even one has a balance in the Betamax account. Keep that thing in mind - it's not free for ever.

I had used voipstunt, an older services provided by Betamax, same parent of smartvoip. They collected $10EU and promised 120 days of free use. But after one month, calls to anywhere will get busy tone. Tried to reach their support and got no respond from any human. Asked refund and got nothing back.

If Betamax is a honest company, why don't they keep working on voipstunt to make it really good? Instead, they created all thise different brand, to allur people paying $10EU for a period of free use, but cut you off after short period of time. Stay away from any Betamax services!

Betamax is one of the fraud websites who charges the customers credit card illegally.
Modus operandi of the company is charging few customers credit card without telling them & also by blocking users account who have big amounts of top-up in their account. And then use that amount to provide free service to other & gain popularity.

My credir card has been charged with 640 euros in 10 days. When i got to know I blocked my credit cards by calling my bank.
My webcalldirect account is used to charge my credit card. My voipzoom, justvoip accounts have blocked & tried the same credit card on those accounts as well.

Later when i did a search on google, i get to know about the same fraud happened with many people.

following are the links which provide the details about the cases. Its just a small list, try google yourself & u'll fin more than 200 complaints


even trusted websites like wikipedia have the details about the frauds by this company
