Free long distance calling!

Saw this on RFD, pretty neat you get a new 778 number and you can make long distance or local calls!
Or you can use it for you're shady ass runs
Works on Iphone, Android, Desktop and soon Blackberry.
Forgot to mention you can either use WIFI or 3g/4g network, i think its like 1mb=1min
Fongo
Sound quality is pretty good as well.

Or just get Skype and spend a whopping 0.01c/min. I've made a ton of calls from Ger to Can over the last few months and have not even spent 5eur

If you attend UBC before, you should have a campus login.
Go anywhere in the world, access internet, VPN to UBC, then use google talk. Free Long Distance There.

This method has been tested with my girlfriend in China (and China bans Google etc...)

This is how you cheat the system from google. VPN ftw!

Yeah I use Skype to Skype a lot, but I also call cell and landlines in Vancouver from Germany and it's always $0.01/min.

Free long distance to can/usa. You don't get a phone number though.

It's been 3 years since Google Voice was introduced and it still hasn't been available to Canada. You might just have to keep on waiting and waiting

This is practically useless for those with a plan like Holiday Miracle Plan on Wind or Mobilicity.

Yes, it runs on the background, while draining more battery out of your phone.

I used nettalk on my iPhone while I was vacationing in LA. Call quality was decent, but the quality varies as with all VOIP calling services and is entirely dependent on your 3g or wifi connection.

Thanks.

I setup my number as a ontario number, so my family back east can save on LD charges.

Works perfectly

Dumbest thing ever, no way to quit the program on Android. I would force close it because I installed it just to see what it was about....a few hours later pops up again and doesn't have an exit/sign out option.

Un-installed it less than 24hrs later.

Viber people need to step their game up and get their app working for ICS. It's been a 3 month wait and a known issue with ICS and still no solution.
