Pennytel Free Minutes : Make unlimited free calls

Pennytel is back with a bang. Yes we are talking about the great offer by Pennytel, its 10 Million Free Minutes Promotional offer. Last year somewhere around mid of December we saw that Pennytel offered the same plan of 10M Free Mins and it was a big big success for them. Huge numbers of new customers joined their service and talked endlessly, why not they were getting free calls!

Remember the post about PennyTel Promotional Offer 2009 , that post on FPPC Blog received so many hits, almost every reader of this blog was making free calls.

Once again its time of year that you can make unlimited free international calls, as Pennytel is again offering free 10M minutes of free calls. This is a strictly limited offer, from the 1st of December 2010 to the 8th of January 2011, or when all the free minutes have been used (whichever comes first). So you have to hurry as days are just passing.

Pennytel is offering free minutes to following countries :

Australia, Canada, China, India, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, the UK

For those who are new to Pennytel, its a Australian Voip provider and money transfer service. Its a highly popular and widely used voip service.

How to get 10M free minutes of calls from Pennytel.

- Visit this Pennytel Promotional Page.
- Enter your email address (valid) and register with them.
- If you are already a pennytel user, then you should already have 10M free minutes in your account.
- Pennytel will send you three emails. Check for your password in the welcome mail.
- Make a note of your SIP username (Pennytel Number) & your password.


How to make free calls using Pennytel account. 

- Firstly Pennytel itself provides a softphone so that you can make free PC to Phone Calls.
  1. Login into your pennytel account.
  2. Click on softphone at left sidebar.
  3. A softphone opens up for making PC to Phone Calls.
Though the Pennytel softphone works, but I don't like its call voice quality.
So what do I suggest.

Making Free PC to Phone Calls using Pennytel free minutes :

- Download Nimbuzz softphone.
- Install it.
- Register with Nimbuzz to create a login.
- Once logged in, you have to add your Pennytel SIP account to it.
- Go to Tools and select Options. ( A new window opens up).
- Select Call services.
- Select SIP Provider (other)
- Username : your pennytel username (a number mailed to you).
- Password : Pennytel Password.
- Proxy/Domain :
- Save it.
- You can now make Free Pc to Phone Calls.

Not working at all. No softphone after access at all.Is this a joke?

December 5, 2010 at 3:13 AM

Hey..This ain't a joke..
I am myself making free calls using pennytel. As mentioned in the blog post, that PennyTel softphone may give problems.

Its better to make SIP calls using either Nimbuzz (for PC) or Fring (from your Phone). This will surely work!

December 5, 2010 at 5:09 AM

Hey Dear I have installed NIMBUZZ but its still not says phone ringing and actualy there is no phone call going through.Calls are not going through. Can you plz help!!

December 5, 2010 at 7:04 AM

Hey Jaspreet,

Please make sure that your are connected to SIP gateway.
SIP Provider status (Call services) will show connected.

Last year Pennytel was not working for a few numbers, so you may try calling any other number.

I just tried calling my Delhi number using Nimbuzz and it works great for me !

-- Madhur

December 5, 2010 at 8:03 PM

Okay, I set up Nimbuzz, configured SIP, as you said, but damn...I KNOW there is someone there, but it keeps on ringing! Nobody answers. I tried various numbers in India with the result. PLEASE advise.


December 5, 2010 at 9:23 PM

You say, "2. Click on softphone at left sidebar." I am logged into Pennytel but do not see this at all! Please clarify.


December 6, 2010 at 3:23 AM

@ANONYMOUS:Yeah, when you call through NIMBUZZ it shows phones ringing but actually there is no phone ringing on other side.Calls are not going through. I have found softphone application but when I dial any number it says you dont have sufficient balance to make this call. Itried various numbers,but not working at all:-(((.So both softphone and NIMBUZZ are useless,inspite of wasting so much time on these things.

December 6, 2010 at 3:32 AM

Hi Madhur:
Ihave completed all the settings,SIP is also showing connected. I am trying various numbers to Punjab. It shows phone ringing but on other side no call is going through. In soft phone it shows my status as REGISTERED and when I dial Indian numbers the message says you dont have sufficient balance to make this call. I have subscibed to FREE 10M MINUTES TO INDIA...why is it so?? Irelly want to make use of this offer..

December 6, 2010 at 5:42 AM

Hi all,

So the problem for most of you is "Nimbuzz shows that it is ringing, while it actually is not ringing.".

Well, I think I have solution for this. I am going to share what I did.

I tried to register for another account with pennytel. I was mailed with SIP username & password. I directly used these settings with nimbuzz and I had the same ringing problem. (What I missed was once login into my pennytel account).

So I again tried registering for a new account & this time, I logged into my pennytel account first. Enabled Pennytel softphone service (logged out, logged in again). Now I tried calling from Nimbuzz and it worked for me. No more ringing problems. May be you all need to ensure that you have atleast once logged into Pennytel account.

Use Member login at this link.

If you all still face this problem, let me know. I will create a common user account for all and will share the SIP username & password here.


December 6, 2010 at 7:34 AM

@ANONYMOUS: To find SOFTPHONE option Click on MY PORTAL (just below the WELCOME)at Righ hand side of Main window when you login to my portal you will see SOFTPHONE option on left hand side.Hope this will help you!!

December 6, 2010 at 7:37 AM

Hey nothing is working not event when I got new account details and logged into PENNYTEL first still NIMBUZZ not working......I am going crazy with all this..SOFTPHONE says I dont have enough balance to call India???????

December 6, 2010 at 7:46 AM

Dear Madhur ji,

We all cant make any call inspite of following all the instructions given by you .So could you plz create a common user account for all and will share the SIP username & password here.


December 6, 2010 at 8:31 AM

Try this account :
Your PennyTel Phone Number/Username : 8889272138
Your PennyTel Phone Password : tsv40BDh

It is working for me.

-- Madhur

December 6, 2010 at 9:05 AM

Thank you so much!!!! MADHUR. Its working now.

December 6, 2010 at 6:39 PM

Hi all,

So I guess, Pennytel is working for all of you now :)

Please refer to the embedded video (about using Nimbuzz with Pennytel SIP settings) if you are facing problems in configuring Nimbuzz.


December 6, 2010 at 11:12 PM

Dear Madhur,

Its working when we use your account and password,but when we sign with our account then it doesn`t show 10MILLION MINUTES in my access plan status .It just says :ACCESS PLAN-FREE.That is why we cants make free calls with our accounts although we have subscribed for FREE MINUTES.But anyways thanks a lot,I can use it now with your account:-))

December 7, 2010 at 8:35 AM

Dear All,

In order to get to the 10 million minutes plan you need to be a member of Pennytel. If you are not a member when you join this offer you will face problems connecting. Try registering with Pennytel and then applying for this plan. Hope that helps.

Hi Free Calls Hub team

Thanks for stopping by :)

Offcourse you need to be a member of Pennytel to avail this offer. When you join this offer, you will first have to register with them.

I am not sure whether its possible to join this offer without joining Pennytel!

When you visit the link, it clearly asks to regitser if one is not already a pennytel member.

Anony clearly pointed out that "you need to have 10M free minutes account" & not a "ACCESS PLAN-FREE" account. If joins via promo page, Pennytel should automatically assign 10M free minutes account.

Anyways, I guess people are successfully using that account to make free calls.

No problem at all. We always follow your blog and we have many a times found creative ways to help our readers. Pennytel is quite good but please allow us to request everyone to get a username and password. This will ensure longer call connections along with better quality.

Hi Free Calls Hub Team.

Aaah..That was completely my fault. It seems that your comment was not published (marked default spam by Google coz of the link) came directly to my mailbox..n I thought it got published..
I should have checked it earlier before commenting further.

Please don't take my comment otherwise. I really appreciate your help to this blog readers. I myself follow your blog as well.

Regarding people getting their own account. Well I am also in favor that People should register a new account for themselves for making calls. However as many people were not able to make account, I just helped them so that they can avail this great pennytel offer.

My aim is to save people's money and help as many as we can to avail this Pennytel offer.

I again request my blog readers to not abuse the service & this offer.

Thanks again for your help!

December 11, 2010 at 9:36 PM

Is pennytel working for you?

Last night it worked for me from the website. I was able to make free call but voice quality was not good.

Then I tried to configure it for nimbuzz. In nimbuzz it shows status connected and after dialing it says phone is ringing with toonnn tunnnnn tunnnnnnn sound. after few second call is automatically disconnecting. and my phone don't ring even for a second.

after this I again tried to make call from the website using pennytel softphone . Now I am not able to call from website to. here it shows phone ringing and no sound. also phone is not ringing.

December 11, 2010 at 9:40 PM

Hi Anony,

Pennytel is currently working for me. It was not working for me a few hours earlier.

Actually this thing will happen, as a lot of people are now aware of Pennytel free call service. So many people are making free calls, getting a load on their service. I would suggest you to try it after sometime.

Or get a new account with Pennytel and see if it works.

-- Madhur

December 12, 2010 at 12:06 AM

Hi Madhur,

I tried registering with new email id. It shows message cannot proceed. May be they have restricted it to 1 id per IP.

Also i tried using the 2 account details mentioned here but while dialing t just shows ringing but did not actually ring to the numbers.

I have also followed your NImbuzz configuring tutorial and still it is not working.

Any chance you could remote login to my machine and check whether it is actually working?? or I am making any mistake. If it would have been working then it would have worked with the other account details given here or is it just limited to few state circles in india or few indian telecom service provider.

I would appreciate if you could let us know with which all service providers it is working and in which all state circles in India.

Please add me in gtalk or drop in your phone number to same mail id for contacting you.

It seems they have converted all 10 M free account plan to Free Access Plan. Even while registrying new, they are providing Free Access Plan account.

Thia account says your account balance is not sufficient to make call. Please help. This is not even 10 days we used.

December 16, 2010 at 9:39 AM

I have been calling to India for the past 4 days but now it says "Your account balance is insufficient to place a call to the destination". It seems that they have changed 10M free mintues plan to Free access Plan. Any help is highly appreciated

December 16, 2010 at 7:36 PM


Well, one of our blog readers contacted Pennytel and found that they have blocked Nimbuzz voip application.

You can try Fring on your iPhone, any other Phone supporting SIP.

You can also directly go for Pc to Phone calls from Pennytel voip account.

-- Madhur

December 16, 2010 at 8:28 PM

Thanks for your quick reply, Madhur. I logged into pennytel account and called India no and still it says "Your account balance is insufficient to place a call to the destination". any other way to make a call

December 17, 2010 at 4:10 PM

it seems to be that they have removed this offer. I was using this offer and suddenly it got changed Free Access Plan and now i am unable make calls..

Apart from is there any way to get unlimited calls to India with low rental....

December 18, 2010 at 1:27 PM

Tried Flaphone - doesn't work. However, Nimbuzz still works from time to time. I just tried Nimbuzz - it works. Pennytel suggests using X-Lite. I tried that and it says, "not enough credits". IF PENNYTEL IS TRYING TO GET NEW CUSTOMERS, THIS WILL ONLY SERVE TO ALIENATE THEM. Pennytel may have shot itself in the foot by pulling the offer early and also by calls not working...they may have been ahead by not coming up with a promotion that does not work at all!

December 18, 2010 at 7:26 PM

Hi Anony,

If you are looking for monthly rental plans (unlimited calls) then you can give IndiaLD a try !

-- Madhur

January 2, 2011 at 9:00 PM

I am the one who posted at December 18, 2010 1:27 PM. I take back my words. No...they did not stop 10 million minutes service. We are using it every day nowadays. You have to use X-Lite. It works like a charm every time! It was not Pennytel's fault - I was using Nimbuzz. :(
