Free Calls From Mobile to Philippines (landline/Mobile) by Air4

We have a good readership on this blog. A significant part of our blog readers are looking for ways to make free calls to Philippines. In the past, we have posted about an offer for Free Philippines Calling by Rebtel and it proved to be a big hit. However as that offer soon expired, we were forced to look out for some other options. Though it is one of the most called destinations, but the call rates ain't cheap (infact we would call them costly). The price range varies from 10-15 cents per minutes for voip providers and some telecom companies charge more than 25-50 cents per minute.

So today we will be discussing one voip provider which is offering free unlimited calls to Philippines (both mobiles and landlines). We are talking about Air4 Communications ( which is offering various calling plans for Philippines. We will be discussing in details all the calling plans offered by them, but one such plan is really exciting. Lets see how.

Talkatone for Android | Talkatone for PC | Talkatone iPad/iPhone

We have reviewed so many different mobile voip application on this blog. Be it Viber, tango video calls, Skype or any other we have reviewed so many of them. However the list of voip applications is so long and today we will be discussing about another similar mobile voip application for your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Android devices. We are talking about voip app named "Talkatone".

Talkatone allows you to make phone calls using Wifi or 3G. Basically Talkatone uses Google Voice as a channel to make free calls. Talkatone uses Google Talk and Google Voice services and bridges the gap between instant messaging on your computer and regular cellular calls on your mobile device. Talkatone helps you to make unlimited FREE calls, send text messages and share locations using data connection on your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

In order to get most out of Talkatone you need to have Google Voice Account and setup Google services. I believe Talkatone also allows you to login with your Gmail/facebook account. So with just a facebook/gmail account, you can make mobile calls for free.

This app has been released for Android Mobiles as well. It works for Android: 2.2 (2.3+ is required for BlueTooth and speakerphone), armv7 or x86 CPU. When you download and launch the Talkatone app the first time you'll be presented with two login options - Facebook and Google. If you want to text with Facebook friends or give them a call login with Facebook. Talkatone will pull your friends and sync them with a local address book.

If you want to call and text your Google buddies you may login with Google. You may also make absolutely FREE phone calls and send texts in US and Canada.

Some user reviews
Talkatone is awesome! No need for a cell phone plan if you have this app!
It works fine for a day but then I go to open it and I get a black screen. Have to uninstall and reinstall to get it to work again. Wtf!
WTF is wrong with this developer? No matter which way I hold my Nexus 10, Talkatone is upside down. When I flip the nexus 10, Talkatone flips UPSIDE DOWN! WTF!!! You guys from Mars or what?

Seems that lot of people are facing problems installing and using Talkatone app on their android mobiles. It is high time that they make a stable app. Still more than 2000 people have given them 5 star rating!

Talkatone for PC

Please note that talkatone does not offer any official app for your computer. However that said you can install an android emulator on your laptop/PC and use the android apk to use Talkatone on PC. It works in the similar way with which we got Whatsapp application working on your PC.

Offcourse it would have been better Talkatone would have themselves launched a PC application and people would have used it seamlessly. Why not go ahead and start requesting in the comment section. I am sure Talkatone people will hear up and reply back.

Using Talkatone Outside USA and Canada

Talkatone is built on top of Google Voice and unfortunately Google Voice is only available in the US, Canada and Europe. Thus, residents of other countries only have partial access to Talkatone functionality.

This includes:
  1. The ability to call anybody who also has installed Talkatone anywhere in the world. Invite your friends to download Talkatone.
  2. The ability to import your Google chat contacts and Facebook contacts and message them from a unified interface.
Basically the full usage is limited to people having Google voice account. So if you do not have Google Voice account than what you cannot do is "make free calls to USA/Canada"

Gtalk is very popular for android mobiles, however gtalk is not so popular for iPhone, iPod touch or iPad. Vtok is the application (Gtalk alternative for iPad) for voice and video chat on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Few months back, we posted about Vtok introducing the service. Today we will discuss Vtok in detail.

Vtok is the application for Google Video Chat on your iPad, iPad2, iPhone and iPod touch! Vtok is a free video calling application for your iPad, iPhone or android mobile. With Vtok you can make video calls to all your Google contacts (on their Pc, iPad, iPhone or android mobile).

Making Video calls using Vtok is really easy. Suppose you have Vtok installed on your iPhone or iPad. Your friend also has Vtok installed on his/her phone. When both of you are online on Vtok, you can call each other for free.

To make call using Vtok, launch the application, you will see who's online. Just click on call.
Your friends sees an incoming Vtok call, and picks up the phone.

Vtok can be used to make calls between :
1. Phone to Phone (Both users using Vtok on phone).

Best part is : no account to sign up.
You can just login with your gmail account and start Vtok free video chat.

Some of the Vtok Features :
1. Free video and voice calls to all your Google contacts over Wi-Fi and 3G

Coming to some of the recent user reviews, which I found in the Apple and Android Market.

"Works great! A few bugs but still great! But sucks battery dry even when u close it down. It keeps running in background. Needs proper exit button."

"It actually works on my gTablet! However the video quality of the person I am chatting with isn't the greatest, probably because its not optimized for a tablet screen. As for people not seeing contacts, they only show up if they are available on GTalk and can voice and/or video chat. And there is a button to change which camera is selected (front or rear), don't know if that solves the camera problem or if its a different issue."

I am already using this Vtok app on my Android Mobile and iPod Touch! Are you ?

Chattime iPhone Voip App | Chattime Review

Making cheap calls ain't everything about making calls over internet using Wifi. You can enjoy cheap international calls even if you are not using internet (wifi) on your mobile. And I am not taking about calling cards. That's where Chattime comes into picture.

ChatTime works anywhere, anytime to save you money on your international calls without the need for Wi-Fi. Before we go into details about Chattime iPhone app, they are giving free $1 credit to make international calls. So if you are having an iPhone, Chattime is worth trying!

Chattime mentions on its site "In calls over Wfi,the voice delay is frustrating while the echo and distortion can be maddening. Why be limited to a Wi-Fi hotspot while making calls anyway? That just makes your mobile phone, well, no longer mobile and takes away your freedom to make calls while walking around or riding in a car."

Chattime claims that it is the only low-cost international calling service to offer true carrier grade voice quality and a calling experience that is just as easy and reliable as regular iPhone calls but at a fraction of the price.

Chattime Features ::
  • It's so easy to use and makes life easy!
  • The call quality is always excellent
  • No Wi-Fi required: call to any phone from anywhere
  • Uses your existing iPhone contacts
  • Great rates
  • Buy credit using your iTunes account
  • Try risk free before spending any money
Also, as most mobile carriers offer a Friends & Family program so that calls to your most frequent local numbers are free, you can simply add ChatTime's local access number to the list and all calls placed with ChatTime will be free from local call charges!

Chattime also offers some good planning plans, which we will soon cover in a separate post about Chattime Calling Plans.


Voip Phone Calls from GMAIL : India

If you have been using Gmail, then you might have already noticed the phone icon in the chat bar.
Voice chat is already very popular and making phone calls from Gmail is also getting popular. Last year, Google started phone calls to USA mobile/landlines from Gmail and now this service is available outside the U.S. by offering calling in 38 new languages.

With the phone calls made from Gmail, you do not have to pay any connection fees, you pay just the talktime. You can now buy calling credit in your choice of four currencies (Euros, British pounds, Canadian dollars or U.S. dollars).

If the service is available in your country you’ll see a little green phone icon show up at the top of your chat list and you’ll be ready to make calls (you’ll need to install the voice and video plug-in if you haven’t already).

If you are calling USA from USA, then your calls are free. However if you are calling outside USA to USA, then you will be charged 1 cent per minute.

The calling rates offered by Gmail phone calls are a bit costly as compared to other voip providers like Localphone, Rebtel. Gmail voice calls to India are charged at 2cent per minute as compared to less than a cent per minute offered by many voip providers.

Localphone reduces calling rates to Pakistan

First it was Rebtel 1 Million free minutes to Pakistan giveaway, followed by Rebtel rate reduction to Pakistan and now Localphone has reduced its calling rate to Pakistan.

It seems that the calling rate to Pakistan will come down more in the future and soon many voip provider will start offering free calls to Pakistan.

Localphone has reduced its calling rate to Pakistan to 2.1 pence per minute. However since you are following Free Pc to Phone Calls blog, you have a chance to further reduce your calling rate to Pakistan. Make use of the ongoing Localphone 150% bonus promotion. If you buy $1 credit from Localphone, will get $2.5 credit (additional bonus credit worth $1.5). Your effective rate to Pakistan will come down to 1.19 pence per minute.
Use the voucher code : LPFPCAUG11

Though the offer says 100 Free minutes to India, however that's $1.5 bonus credit which can be used to any country in the world.

Two years back, calling rate to Pakistan was in range of 5-6 cents per minutes and now it has come under 1.5 cents per minute. Seems voip is growing in Pakistan and we are waiting when voip providers start offering free calls to Pakistan.

If you are using expensive calling cards to Pakistan, stop using them. Switch to Localphone, make use of 150% bonus offer now.
