Make Voip Calls from UAE using Flaphone

UAE is one of the countries where voip is very popular. Many NRI's are living in UAE and regularly make calls to India, offcourse they understand the importance of Voip and thus use it for saving on their phone bills.

But the point is almost all voip providers are blocked in UAE. A lot many people from UAE have asked me about some way to make voip calls from UAE. In the past too, we have covered post on using Voip in UAE. Today we will discuss a similar thing.

I know betamax companies are very popular in UAE because of cheap rates. Similarly many other SIP providers are offering cheap calls to India and other destinations but all these SIP calls are blocked in UAE. So how to make it work. Well you can use Flaphone (it was earlier Flashphone)

Flaphone is a free web-based softphone which allows you to make calls from the Internet page. You don't need to download, install or configure anything. Flaphone users can call each other, to SIP phones and to any phone numbers, using SIP providers. I hope this clears the point. Since it is Flash based phone, this Flaphone website aint blocked in UAE.

So since you can access Flaphone website, you can access Flaphone softphone (on their website itself). Now you can configure your SIP settings in Flaphone interface. If you are having say a betamax account may be with Smartvoip, webcalldirect etc then they offer you with SIP settings. Just configure these SIP settings into Flaphone and this enables you to make voip calls.

A few points to be considered here are : Firstly your betamax (SIP) providers credit is consumed. I would suggest you to buy minimum credit from betamax as they don't have any good reputation. Secondly you need to have a
Adobe Flash Player version 9 or higher to use flaphone.

It is very easy to setup SIP on Flaphone. But if you still face any problems then better see the Flaphone help.

If you check the Flaphone blog then you will see that second most hits of Flaphone is from UAE only. So that means already large number of people from UAE are using Flaphone. Are you..? Do share your views.
