Dial91 : Cheap calling card to India

Calling India from USA is a very cheap deal now. You will be amazed to know that calling India from USA is cheaper than what we have to pay making local calls in India. Voip has made all this possible.

Calling cards market is USA is quite huge. Specially there are many calling card providers offering best deals for making calls to India. The reason for this is these calling card target the Student community (India students in USA) and others NRI's who have been working in USA.

Few months back, I posted about Dial91. That point of time, it was offering calling rate of about 2.8 cents/minute to India. Many of my friends in USA have been using Dial91 Indian calling card. Actually Dial91 has lowered their call rates to India. They have reduced the price to just 2.5 cents/min. I came to know from one of my friend that Dial91 is charging him just 1.3 cents/minute if he buys a the plan worth $10 (validity one month). This thing is not mentioned on their website, but I have contacted them about this thing (will post as soon as I get some answer). offers a full range of user option features designed to make long-distance and international calls as convenient and economical as possible.

With Dial91 you can dial India with no connection fee. Here are some of the easy-to-use features of our virtual calling card:

  • Instant sign up
  • Recharge instantly
  • PIN-FREE dialing
  • Speed dial/Address book
  • Superior quality
  • No connection fee
  • Call any numbers In India
  • Pulse rounding to 60 seconds
  • Best rates to most countries

Dial91 also offers cheap rates to Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. I guess Dial91 understand the scope in Asian Calling market and is targetting it. Other nice feature about Dial91 is that it offers as low as $2 credit. So you can test their service for that low.

Atleast someone giving competition to Nymgo, ActionVoip.


VoipBlast Review and Rates : Free International Calls

One more voip service by the Voip company dellmont Sarl : VoipBlast. Many voip blogs and websites have been stating that Betamax and Dellmont Sarl are one and the same, so may be VoipBlast is one of another betamax voip provider! Just like other betamax services you can use VoipBlast on your iPhone, Android Mobile, Windows mobile or on your PC to make Pc to Phone Calls.

Most of the betamax voip providers offer very cheap calling rates but a lot of people don't favor Betamax because of their 'NO' customer support, fluctuations in calling rates, loss of credit etc etc (the list is so long that I can cover one post on this thing only). Lets see if VoipBlast also prove to be the same or it can change the face of betamax.

But trust me, using voip will help you save a lot of money. Voip is an efficient and cost effective alternate of landlines phones. Switch to voip and start saving on your phone bills!

A lot other people go for Betamax and find no problems with them. So, I guess if you are in favor of betamax then you can also try this new voip provider "Voipblast", but if you have not tested betamax then I would suggest not to try this new betamax.

Coming back to the new voip service, Voipblast and its features. You can use the free VoipBlast software (Download Voipblast PC application) to make free calls to regular phones in various popular destinations. The free destinations include USA, Canada, Sweden, UK, Belgium, Brazil etc (check the voipblast website to find other free destinations). VoipBlast rates are also cheap for other destinations, specially India.

Now talking about the calling rate which VoipBlast offers for making calls to India. Well Voipblast offers a very cheap rate of just 0.7 cents/min to India (yeah..less than one cent), but hey hold on -- this voip service (voipblast) has a connection fee for every Pc to Phone call and Phone to Phone calls which is 3.9 cents/call.

I guess the connection fees of VoipBlast is way too high (approx 5 times the calling rate to India). If you make longer duration phone calls then the connection fees wont hurt you and your effective calling rate will be still less than a cent. But if you make calls of just 1-2 minutes, then I wont suggest you VoipBlast.

VoipBlast SIP Settings :
  • SIP port : 5060
  • Registrar :
  • Proxy server :
  • Outbound proxy server : leave empty
  • Account name : your VoipBlast username
  • Password : your VoipBlast password
  • Display name/number : your VoipBlast username or voipnumber
  • Stunserver (option) :

A lot of other calling cards (phone to phone) charge you about 5 cent connection fees, so atleast Voipblast is better option from them. Another good thing about Voipblast is that minimum recharge Amount is only 1Euro, so you try this service with minimum amount (then if you like the service you may buy more credit).

You can use VoipBlast on iPhone, VoipBlast on PC (Download Voipblast), Voipblast on iPod Touch, VoipBlast on Android Mobile, VoipBlast on Mac!

So, its time now to try VoipBlast.

Useful tips for using Google Voice

Google Voice is the next big thing in the voip market. Just after few days of its launch, the internet is flooded with discussions on Google Voice. I hope by now, most of our USA blog readers must have got an invite and joined Google Voice service. So apart from already known famous features of Google Voice, what other additional benefits can you get using Google Voice.

Today we discuss two of the most useful tips of Google Voice.

First making free calls from your mobile phone : I guess most of you have mobile phones like iPhone, blackberry etc. Most of these phones comes with plans of AT&T, T-mobile etc. Now these service providers offer a limited amount of monthly minutes. Some operators offer 'unlimited free minutes' to certain numbers and these numbers are not counted monthly minutes. If you are making calls to Google Voice number (include this in your free calling list) and we know Google voice allows you to call other USA numbers for free, then effectively you got unlimited calls free.
This tip is simple based on fact that Google bears the call charges from Google Voice to other USA phone numbers.

Calling USA phone number directly from browser : Calling using Google voice from Firefox.
This I guess should also work for using Google Voice on MAC.
A free Google Voice addon is provided by thatsmith for firefox. Here is the link for Google Voice Add-on for Firefox.
Click a phone number on any page to place a call using Google Voice. Displays your number in the status bar and lists your most recent call when hovered. Select text to send as a text message or dial and text from the status bar.

I hope these two tips prove helpful to you. Do share your views about it.

Betamax Rate Comparison for calling India

Few days back, we posted about betamax companies offering cheap calls to Indonesia. I have been getting emails from blog readers about various betamax companies like Jumblo, smartvoip etc offering very cheap calls to India.

So, I thought to once again look at the prices offered by various betamax providers so that people can choose the cheapest one. Below is just the rate comparison, to know more about these betamax providers just visit the respective blogpost.

Jumblo : It is offering very cheap rates to India and I guess the cheapest these days.
1 Euro cent to Indian landlines and .7 cent (less than one cent) to call Indian mobiles. SIP support is also there.

SmartVoip : It is offering the same rate of one eurocent to both Indian mobiles and landlines. So if you call landlines most then SmartVoip is equally good.

ActionVoip : It is offering 1 eurocent to Indian mobile but for lanlines it is cheaper than above two. Actiovoip charge .9 cent/min to call Indian landlines.

Webcalldirect: And many others are offering about 2eurocent/min to call India. I guess above three are a good options. If you have no other problems in using betamax then prefer Jumblo, Actionvoip over others.

Cheers to Voip !!

Cheap calls to Indonesia by Betamax

Indonesia is again such a destination where lots of people make voip calls to. While I was just going through my blog post, to my surprise we have not actually covered a dedicated post for making cheap calls to Indonesia.

A large number of people use calling cards for making voip calls to Indonesia, but if you will check various calling cards websites, then you will see that call rates ain't cheap. I checked the website of Pingo calling cards (famous to provide cheap rates to India), and it was offering call rate of 7.5 cents/minute. Similarly other calling cards and voip providers are offering calling rates in range of 4-15 cents per minute.

Then I moved onto check the rates of Betamax companies, and voila I found a good deal for you. Coincidentally many betamax companies were flashing about their cheap rates to Indonesia.

Jumblo is offering 2.1 cents per in (1.5 euro cents) to make calls to both Indonesia landlines and mobile phones. Other betamax companies are not too far behind. SmartVoip and ActionVoip are offering the same deal and the price (2.1 cents/minute).

Though betamax has not always been among the favorites but still considering the price difference, I would suggest you guys to use Betamax for making calls to Indonesia. The only thing to consider while choosing betamax is that you should buy the credit in small chunks (min at one go), so even if you loose this because of some reason (its normal with betamax) then you would have lost small amount.

I just hope as the prices have reduced for calling India, similarly it should happen for Indonesia. The price war begun by Betamax should lead to make all other voip providers offer cheap calls to Indonesia.
