free calls to Singapore and USA mobiles

Hello,
I have lots of friends in USA and Singapor, I call very often to my friends, calling with Swisscom to mobiles in USA and Singapore is very expensive, do you know is there any good VOIP provider in Switzerland specially in Vaud who offers calls to Singapore and USA for cheaper prices or for free? because now i am paying a lot.

thanks,
jimmy

Re: free calls to Singapore and USA mobiles

thank you all for the help.
I heard about Skype, to use Skype we need to use computer and the other person also need have computer, this is bit difficult. But what is viber? it is also like Skype? I will check about this on internet.
I don't know Switzernet? it is also works with computer? like Skype? I want to know more about it because it is free for Singapore and USA mobiles.
thanks
Jimmy

Re: free calls to Singapore and USA mobiles

As jrspet, I also recommend Switzernet.

I have an account since october and you dont need configure anything. They send you a special phone which you only must connect to your modem and it works without configure anything. The subscription is 9 CHF/month + calls, but for these countries the price of the calls is free I think.

If you are interested, please, let me refer you. (I'll send you my number by private message)

Re: free calls to Singapore and USA mobiles

I use VOIPstunt, which offers "free" calls to several countries including Singapore (land + mobile). You pay 10 Euro for 120 days access. You can use a smartphone with the mobileVOIP app to access it. I have found that it even works with 3G internet access.

Re: free calls to Singapore and USA mobiles

Hello,

I have checked about switzernet. You are correct jrspet and jackqjack. Switzernet is offering more than 20 countries for free including Singapore and USA mobiles. I am happy. And also they are giving a Switzerland phone number. They sell the IP phones and adapters. But I don't know which one to take. Please advice me which is good.
And also please give me your numbers, I will give your number as referrer. They have offer on the IP phones.I want to make inscription as quickly as possible.


Thanks,
Jimmy.

Gigaset is a good choice unless you already have a decent phone, in which case go for the ATA unit alone. PM sent for the referral

Re: free calls to Singapore and USA mobiles

Hello,

Thank you jrspet for the suggestions about the device Gigaset A510IP.
I have read the details of this IP phone A510IP, it looks like a new model and it has lots of options.
And the price is only 49 CHF instead of 69 CHF. It is very cheap. And the offer is till end of this month 30th June. It is better I make inscription today. I will mention your number as referrer.

Thanks,
Jimmy.

Re: free calls to Singapore and USA mobiles

Another easy way will be to top up for $10 one time on your Gmail account ( call phone feature right above your chat list in your Gmail), install a google talk client app like Talkatone or Fring on your smart phone and call for free to the US. I think for other countries it is 2 cents per minute. I use this and find it very convenient.

Re: free calls to Singapore and USA mobiles

Hello,

Thank you as02 and Megamind for your suggestions, but I think it will be difficult for me to use google talk app may be I will try later.
For the moment I have made inscription with Switzernet.com, they have option to choose a swiss number according the region where you live.
I have given your number jrspet as a referrer. I have signed the contract. They have processed order very quickly. I have received my phone. I will test it during this week-end. They have also trial period for 15 days.
The phone looks good, it is a wire-less device. With color screen. And the price is only 49 CHF. The offer is going to finish on 30th June. If anybody want to try Switzernet make inscription, here is the link. Their website is in several languages.

Thanks,

Re: free calls to Singapore and USA mobiles

Hi Jimmy

Many thanks - they sent it ( a pleasant incentive towards my account ) to me today. Try out a call to a landline in SG, and a call each to a landline and mobile to the US, and then check your account statement online if you have been billed. One critical test is the ability to receive calls from ordinary landline and mobile users, be it local or foreign.

Online: http://switzernet.com/public/060801-...php?language=3

Once your trial period is over and if you are OK with the service, referrals might defray some of the costs to you.

Hi jimmy3, there are no limits to monthly referrals. If in doubt, shoot an email to: support at switzernet.com ( FAO: Ms. Sujatha Nampally ) for a double confirmation. I wish I too would qualify for free calls to Norway.

Trust this helps in some way.

Re: free calls to Singapore and USA mobiles

Jimmy if you have a land line this works out the cheapest:

http://fuchstarife.ch/rates.php#S

"So telefonieren Sie mit den Fuchstarife-Zugangsnummern:

Suchen Sie in der Tarifliste das Land, das Sie erreichen möchten.
Wählen Sie die dazugehörige Zugangsnummer und warten Sie bis die Verbindung hergestellt ist.
Geben Sie die Länderkennung, Vorwahl + Rufnummer des gewünschten Teilnehmers ein und beenden Sie die Eingabe mit der #-Taste. Fertig!
Preise in Rappen pro Minute inkl. MwSt für Anrufe ab dem Festnetz. Die kostenlose Tarifansage wiederholt den 09xx/08xx Tarif vor jeder Verbindung nochmals! Zusätzlich einmaliges Einwahlentgelt für 09xx Nummern: 10 Rappen für Anrufe ab dem Festnetz.
Aber aufgepasst! Ihr Mobilfunkbetreiber berechnet Ihnen ein Zuschlag! Nähere Informationen erhalten Sie bei Ihrem Mobilfunkbetreiber."

Land: Singapur (Fest und Mobil)
Zugangsnummer: 0840 55 66 05
Festnetz tarif Rp/Min: 1
Zusätzlich einmaliges Einwahlentgelt (Rp): 0

Land: USA (Fest und Mobil)
Zugangsnummer: 0840 55 66 05
Festnetz tarif Rp/Min: 1
Zusätzlich einmaliges Einwahlentgelt (Rp): 0
