FAQ : Making free calls using Pennytel

First Wishing all my blog readers a very very Happy New Year. This time of year, almost everyone wish their friends and family, the call volumes increasing to a great extent.

Well, Few days back we posted about PennyTel voip service and their new year offer in which it offered unlimited free voip calls to India and other 5 destinations. Many people have been sucessful in using this PennyTel voip service and have been making more than 3 Hrs of phone calls each day.

To bring to your notice that the PennyTel voip service is still working good, and you will be able to make free calls to India and wish everyone a happy new year. For those who were not able to make calls using PennyTel, just check the few points below and check where you were wrong.

1. You registered on the website "PennyTel" and received email confirmation with login details. Now you are able to login properly.

2. You filled your email address on the xmaspromo page on the pennytel website - Link.
Only this will entitle you to get free 10 M minutes of free calls.

3. You received confirmation mail regarding free 10 M minutes - that is SIP details. Now when you login to your account you can see the plan type as "Free access Plan (10 M Minutes Free) [ON your home page - when you login to your account ]

4. You have successfully launched PennyTel softphone : and it shows Registered (after it has loaded). (Check the Pin I posted in the earlier post).

5. To dial the number you dial : 919891XXXXXX (India Mobile) or (00919891XXXXXX)
India Landline as - 91 11 XXXXXXXX or (00 91 11 XXXXXXXX).

Your call should get connected now. But if you miss any of above said steps and probably you should correct it to make free calls.

Dial91 : Dial India, India Calling Card : 1.5 Cents/Min

This holiday season, a large number of voip providers have lowered their call rates to India. If you are paying more than 1.5-2 cents per minute to call India, then you are definitely losing money.

We have so many options now to make calls to India. Free Calls to India is offered by Pennytel this holiday season (till 2nd Jan2010), it also offers free voip calls to other countries. If you talk of calling cards Pingo is obviously a good option, but you can explore others too.

Due to the every growing competition, many voip providers are forced to lower call rates. Dial91 has reduced its call rates to India. Dial91 is now offering 1.5 cents/minute to call India. One of my friend is using Dial91 to make calls from USA to India, and he is very much satisfied with the call quality.

Another good thing about Dial91 is that you can buy as low as a $2 calling card, which will give you 134 calling minutes to India with effective calling rate just 1.5 cents/minute. So I guess you can try it by buying a $2 card, and continue with the voip service if you like it. Soon you will be able t access Dial91 from Skype, another cool thing !!

Airtel Call Home is used by many, many calling India from USA (famous among NRI's). The service by Airtel call home is indeed good, and that's the reason people favor it.

When Airtel Call home launched its 1 cent plan to call India (Airtel call India) people did not registered for it because of the rental thing. Actually Airtel Call Home was charging some rental for India Calling Plans. Now Airtel Call home has launched another plan with Zero Rental. With thins Airtel Call India, you can make very cheap calls to India.

IndiaLD : India Calling card : Call India for 0.7Cents/minute

IndiaLD Cheapest calls to Call India This holiday season with Christmas and new year around, we assure you that you will not spend much on your phone calls. Thanks to the latest new year promotions and offers by various voip providers offering cheap and free voip calls.

Yesterday we posted about Pingo Calling cards which is offering very cheap calls to India clubbed with some great offers (offering effective rate of less than one cent). Today we will discuss another such offer by well known IndiaLD.

Already very popular IndiaLD is celebrating its 1st anniversary with some very good promotions to call India. Lets talk about these promotions and benifits in details.

1. 5000 Mins for $35.00 plus tax with effective calling rate of .007 Deal :
Call India Land & Mobile For $.007/min.
45 Day Validity. Recharge Allowed.
No Fees. No Hidden Charges.
Pinless Dial Per Account.
The sad part - USA ACCESS NUMBER ONLY! (California access number (949) 259-9907.)

2. 1.5¢ India Calling Card, NEW From IndiaLD :
Call India Land & Mobile For 1.5¢/min.
90 Day Validity. Pay As You Go.
No Fees. No Hidden Charges.
Send Free SMS to India.
Call From 11 Countries.

According to me, if you are from USA and making a lot of calls to India then $35 plan is good for you. It is not for the people who make less call to India and are not sure that they will be able to consume 5000 minutes in 45 days.

Pay as you go plan is good by IndiaLD, the calling rate to India is very competitive. I guess Pingo Calling card is equally good or a better option for those who want to make calls to India. So I would suggest you to check both and then make a choice.

That means, your calling rate to India on Wednesday gets to - half a cent per minute (0.5 cent or $0.005 per minute).

Free Calls to India from worldwide (different countries)

Access based number dialing is getting very popular now. Lots and lots of new access based number services are coming up which offer free international phone calls. Earlier, there was only Freedomcalls which offered a Australian access number dialing which you can connect to 60 countries for free.

Today, local access numbers are offered from various parts of world. You can use mobile cap minutes to dial these numbers for free and then dial your international number (international part is covered by these voip providers).

Below is the access number and calling procedure from various countries. Note that you need to check with your telecom provider if they offer free/cheap calls to these local access numbers.

1. Free calls to India from Australia :
Dial access number 0424 21 5054 .
Press 1 to make calls.
Dial Destination Number
Dial the international number (destination number). Prefix 0011 + Country code + Destination Number + #

BDPhoneOnline Review: Unlimited calls to India Bangladesh Worldwide

Its the new year time, the call volumes increase during this time of year. We thought to explore some more voip provider which offer cheap International phone calls. We found a voip provider names BDPhoneOnline which is offering unlimted worldwide calling at cheap rates.

Bdphoneonline is offering unlimited phone calls to about 60 countries which include India and Bangladesh. Yes this means, that its unlimited phone calls to India.

It also includes low international rates & free "in-network" calling
Free phone adapter.-- Linksys Phone adapter to make phone calls from your normal phone.
Includes features such as Call Waiting, Forwarding, Voicemail and more!

First let me tell you the price, the price mentioned at the homepage says - $20.99 per month. (Thats actually not the exact price). You will have to pay ($20.99+$7.00 tax/fees + $2.00) $29.99 every month.

You initial order will cost you (1st mo $20.99+ setup $10.00 + Tax $7 + Shipping & Handling $8.95 + $2.00) $48.94. After that only $29.99 every month.

One more thing to has to be noticed is the calling limit -:
Average 2 hrs daily or 60 hrs/month for FREE international call. No Limit for calls to USA, CANADA, incoming call and call between BdPhone to BdPhone. Over the limit Free International call will be charge at 3 cents per minute.

Now in terms of money, the call cost comes to be less than a cent per minute, but the thing is, offer by BDphone is useful only if you are spending $30 per month with your other voip provider. The deal is useful for the ones who talk more than 3000 minutes to India or these 60 countries.

If you have already used BDphoneonline then your review (comments) will be very useful for others. Please share your views.

Rebtel Computer Calls : Make Phone Calls from Laptop

If you talk about voip then what comes to our mind is Skype. But do you know that Rebtel is also liked by large number of people and it has become world's second largest voip provider. It has been very popular on this blog. Last year, Rebtel launched many promotions offering very cheap international calls. It time to time offers new voucher codes like double money where you can get twice the credit you buy.

The general method of calling it offers is that it offers a local number for each of your contact, dialing which you can connect to your friends and family. Now suppose, you don't have a Mobile, landline phone and still want to make calls using Rebtel. (This situation is quite common with Indian students living in USA and not having any mobile or landline). The only option you have is making calls using your laptop (which I suppose everyone has).

Rebtel has recently launched computer calls, using which you can make cheap international calls without the need of a mobile phone. The good thing is this service can also be used from the countries where Rebtel does not provide local phone numbers (like UAE, India etc).

Rebtel Computer Laptop App

Currently Rebtel does NOT itself offer any PC application, so they provide a sort of workaround method. With Computer Calls you’re able to call your Rebtel contacts from anywhere in the world using your regular Skype™ client. You initiate the call on the Rebtel website and use your Skype client to talk. As you’re calling directly over the Internet with Rebtel, you don’t have to pay a single cent for connection fees or high per-minute rates to Skype. Only the Rebtel rate. Computer Calls also allow you to get a local number for your friends Skype Name and call them on it from your regular phone.

Using Computer Calls To Call Rebtel Friends

1. Go to your contact list on the Rebtel website, click on the local number of the friend you want to call and choose the new “Call from your computer” option.
2. Your Skype client is launched and you will be connected to your friend. You only pay the Rebtel rate.

So, the people who were not using Rebtel just because they wanted to make Pc to Phone calls can now go ahead and start using Rebtel Voip service.

Rebtel has understood that they need to provide more ways to make calls. It has started offering voip client for all the smartphones (be it Android, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry).
Rebtel has launched its official PC Application (its just a softphone which gets installed on your computer/laptop). We recommend using this application instead of the computer calling method we described earlier. 

VoipPRO offers wholesale voip cheap rates

Another voip provider by Delmont Sarl. And this is a wholesale voip provider, which is good for heavy users, small and medium businesses and call centres. Cheap calls are offered by many voip providers like Rynga, ActionVoip but a very few offers wholesale rates.

Another good thing is calls are billed in 1 second increments except Mexico fix and mobile which are billed in 60 seconds increment. Only bad thing is that you need to buy minimum credit worth 100 Euros.
