Stop worrying about expensive calls! Now you can speak with your family, friends or with your business partners anywhere in the world, any time you want.

To make a free call all you need is a telephone, mobile device or computer and a good internet connection. VoIP (Voice over the Internet) allows you to make and receive calls over the internet and replace traditional landlines phones.

You just need a VoIP app, to plug the headset in your device and start calling whoever you want from anywhere. You can also send messages, images, or video and make video calls for free, as long as you and the person you want to talk with are using the same service.

VoIP allows you to make free calls on various devices: smartphone-to-smartphone, computer-to-computer or tablet, computer or tablet to-mobile device.

VoIP service providers that allow you to make free calls

Here are some of the best:

  • Phone.com, best for its flexibility and affordability
  • 8x8 virtual office, best for long distance, international calling options
  • Vonage, best for entrepreneurs with growing businesses
  • Google Voice free virtual phone number with only basic forwarding functions
  • OnSip, rich in features

VoIP calls are always cheaper than traditional calls made over PSTN. And with VoIP you can also make calls to GSM numbers and landlines, as long as you have a credit balance in your VoIP account.

A lot of you are already using VoIP for free calls without even being aware of that. One example of VoIP service provider that allows you make free voice or video calls is the SKYPE. Skype is used by more than 600 million people around the world.

FACETIME is another example and it is used by Apple users.

VIBER is also popular for free voice and video calls.
