Freecalls to India?

I hear Skype is good but we haven't used it because the people we call most often do not have Internet or computers (and hubby often calls when he is away from his computer). Hubby has used Reliance India, 7.4 cents a minute to India.

Hubby signed up for this website 10 days back and said service is great:

Freecall.com

You get 500 minutes for $27 or so, 5.4 cents a minute, then after the 500 minutes it goes up to 7.9 cents per minute. But you have to purchase the 500 minutes.

I use the prepaid service through ppoutlet.com. 6 cents a minute. Great service too. PM me and I'll send you the specific link because they have two prepaids and many kinds of calling cards but we found that the plan we used was the best even for calling to a mobile.

I used Raza and was very happy. I think their rates are 6.9 cents to India and you can print your call log which is helpful at interview time. The website is www.raza.com.

I know someone who uses Reliance too and they are extremely pleased with it.

Are there any VOIP type/other phone companies offering cheap calling plans for India?

Am not aware of any VOIP calls to India for free..

You can try Free PC-to-PC calls to anywhere in the world...many applications( ex. Skype, Google Talk, MSN Live Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger) provide them for free...

I have been using Reliance India the last 3-4 yrs and have found it to be very reliable..I would recommend them..

I've used a company called WQN for years and it is very reliable. You get a local phone number to call and then just directly dial your phone number in India. They're very accomdating when you have one bad calls or get disconnected. Plus great deals where the rate works itself out to about 5.7c per minute.

SOmeone told me about comwave (comwave.net maybe?).

ELW, I looked into that freecall.com website and emailed them asking questions but no one ever got back to me so I never bothered to do it. So it's reliable and good service? I'll have to look into that.

You can buy yoiurself a Vonage phone with your local area code phone number. Then send it to India and have them call you OR you call them since it's a local call for you it will be free from your mobile or your landline. It all works for only 24.99/month unlimited calling. It's a VOIP phone.

A lot of folks do it these days they send a Vonage phone to whereever they want in the world and it works just for 24.99/month unlimited.
