localphone cheap callsWell there is one more news from Localphone. Localphone and many other voip providers are forced to increase call rates to Pakistan in response to actions taken by the Pakistani Government. Effective from 00:00 GMT on 1st July localphone rate to Pakistan will be $0.109 / £0.076 / €0.089 per minute to both landlines and mobiles.

Due to a rise in the cost of terminating international calls in Pakistan, their suppliers have had to increase the rate they charge, and localphone is forced to do the same. LocalPhone mentions that it will in fact make less profit by offering these calls and that this situation is entirely unavoidable.

Lets see how other voip provider react to this situation and will others also increase their calling rates ? Will we be seeing more costlier voip calls to Pakistan ?

Facetime for iPhone : Make Free Video Calls on iOS

Video calling on mobile phone is getting very popular, thanks to applications like Skype. However a more popular video calling application for iOS devices is Facetime app. I was looking for some older posts and just realized I have not covered a post on on Apple's application Facetime. As you all know iPhone4 was launched sometime back and its most distinguishing feature is Facetime (the video calling app).

Apple iPhone is one of the most popular phones available in the market and Apple has always been trying to launch some great features. Facetime is just one of such great feature. Using this application you can make free video calls from your Apple iOS Device (be it Apple iPhone4, iPad or iPod Touch) to another person who is also using Facetime on his Apple iOS Device.

Just like any other voip app (Tango, Skype etc), these free video calls are made using internet. So as long as you are connected to Wifi or 3G you can make free video calls using your iPhone.

Apple Facetime App

It could be possible that none of your friend is using Apple iOS device compatible for Facetime app, good news is that Apple's got your back if you're looking for test FaceTime feature. Just dial up 1-888-FACETIME. Apple employee will be there in a moment to "show you the basics and a few advanced tips." Help line's only open from 8AM to 8PM CDT. It could be possible that some of your friend is using iPhone but you are not aware of it (and don't know if he is using Facetime), for that you can follow our tutorial on finding who's using Facetime.

Bad news is that you can ONLY call people who are using Facetime. As Facetime is developed by Apple, so that they do not have any app for Android Mobiles (though there are some alternatives). Also Facetime can be used on MAC Computer and do not have any application for windows PC.

Check the video : Facetime iPhone to Mac Calling

Facetime is always ON : It works and you can receive the call even if you have not opened this app. If you wish to turn off this feature, visit FaceTime > Preferences and toggle the switch labeled FaceTime from ON to OFF. This will turn off FaceTime on your Mac.

Add more Emails to Facetime :  You can add multiple email to facetime. Simply navigate to FaceTime > Preferences and under the section labeled "You can be reached for video calls at," specify a new email address by clicking on the Add Another Email button.

Change the view Mode (Portrait or Landscape) : You can use the video feature in either portrait or landscape view. With FaceTime on the Mac, you can still switch between these two views. When someone on the other end switches between the views, the Mac version of FaceTime will automatically flip from portrait to landscape and vice versa.

Toggle between the front and rear cameras on your iPad/iPhone 4S: Though according to Apple the front camera has been fine-tuned for FaceTime usage. But sometime you want to use the iPhone’s main camera on the rear to best show off your surroundings and give the caller an idea of where you are. To toggle between the front and main cameras, tap the icon at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Google Voice for everyone : No invite required

Well, Google voice came last year with a bang. Already, there are 1 million people with Google Voice accounts. Initially it started offering its voip service only with invitation. Google acquired the core Google Voice technology in mid-2007 when it bought a company called GrandCentral. At the time, Google closed new sign-ups for the GrandCentral service. Some time back it started offering its voip service to students without invitation.

Now google voice is offering its voip service to everyone without any invitation. Google voice is a web-based platform for managing your communications. It introduced one number to ring all your phones, voicemail that works like email, free calls and text messages to the U.S. and Canada, low-priced international calls and more ! And now google voice goes public, no invitation.

The thing here to notice is Google Voice is still limited to everyone in the U.S. for now and not for everyone internationally. So, all the people in US could use Google voice to make free calls to the U.S. and Canada, to send free text messages.

Free International Calling from South Africa

Well, FIFA world cup is here in South Africa and we have voip offers flowing there. So many voip providers have started offering some of the good deals to make free voip calls from South Africa.

IndiaLD (which was offering 0.7 cents per min to India) started their service Callstar so that you can make free international calls from South Africa. Yes you can make free calls to India from South Africa. Below is the mail which I received from IndiaLD officials about Callstar.

Callstar offers free international calling from South Africa to over 50 countries including India. The site is This service is two weeks old now and growing very quickly.

Call Star offers geographic access numbers in Johannesburg, Durban, and Cape Town. These numbers can be called from landlines or mobile phones. Users pay a local rate to call our access numbers and then get to make a free internatioonal call to 50 countries. When compared to direct dialing India from Telkom, our service is 59% cheaper.

We have not confirmed this directly, but our customers tell us that our access numbers are included in the Telkom Closer 1 and 2 plans which offer free calling during nights and weekends. Even if you are not on a Telkom Closer plan, the cost to call our access numbers is very reasonable and represents a substantial savings over direct dialing international numbers or using a calling card. Peak/Off Peak rates to call our numbers from a Telkom landline are .0157/.0096 ZAR per second, exclusive of VAT.

Unlike some other South African free calling services, our numbers are not 0875 VOIP rated numbers which bill at standard and expensive VAS rates.

We get some very good connection rates and call times, especially to India. In fact, we are using the same carriers as IndiaLD for our calls so you know that the quality is there.

Today lets discuss about another delmont sarl (betamax ??) voip provider . Not very sure but this service has been launched recently and is making some buzz.

As like with other betamax providers is also offering very cheap international calling rate at present. is very similar to a calling card where you have to dial access number.

Presently is offering calls to India mobile at 0.5 eurocents approx $0.007 per min. Less than one cent per minutes - one of the lowest prices. So those looking for very cheap rates, callingcredit is worth trying. Just make sure access numbers are available in your country because SIP calls are not supported.
