Call free from your landline

Hello
just read this from the computer shopper magazine
I may give it a go ,would like to know what others think of it
it says that you can make a 10 min call within the UK or to across the world,you dont need to be on the internet you can just use your normal phone.
As soon as your time is up you just start again,its free because of the advertiers on their web site
anyway heres the link for it,hope it helps
Lee

It seems to work. Free calls UK landline to Turkey landline. You can't call from UK mobiles or to Turkey mobiles.

You still need the Internet though to set up the call. You put your landline number in to entry box and where you wish to call, your landline phone then rings and the call is set up for free for 10 minutes.

Will have to check the quality. You have to register and gve your email address so I would give an email addy that you were not bothered about being spammed!

Re: Call free from your landline

Freebie email service such as http://www.mailinator.com is good for when you don't want to give your real email.

It is used purely for that reason and not as a proper email service

Re: Call free from your landline

But isn't voip stunt a download that then has to be installed?

Which could prove difficult in some internet cafes and friends houses, this one does not need a download.

Re: Call free from your landline

I've been using a system similar to poketalk for international calls from Germany for over a year now. It has saved me a fortune in calls to Ireland and I haven't had any trouble with spamming.

There are plenty of VoIP services out there and most include free calls to/from Turkey. I use Webcalldirect on a cordless SIP handset.

However these are calls made over your broadband connection and the quality of the call is subject to the speed/quality of your broadband and the Internet in general.

Lee08 has found a service that presents the call to your home landline i.e. your BT telephone in the UK. You would not be making the call over the Internet but on your landline. Quality should be better unless of course Poketalk are using some poor quality VoIP circuits to set up the calls. It is a try and see (listen) to test the quality.
