We all have smart phones or tablets today. Even the most basic models of mobile phones to run applications for various purposes, something that even thought there are a few years younger. With so much technology, it is easy to ask ourselves why do we still pay for phone calls? After all, to send a voice message, or the message is just an application or internet connection away.
The Applications of VoIP
It is not something difficult to make so-called very cheap or free to mobile phones or landlines. Only it is necessary a connection of the application with the telephone network for that to be possible. This connection is made through applications of VoIP, available for several operating systems, both computers and smartphones and tablets.
These applications will allow you to reduce the phone bill, and most of them are free to use, and can buy credits for some kinds of specific connections. Practically all are cheaper to make calls using your mobile phone or fixed line phone.
However, with the popularity of VoIP applications such as Skype, thousands of others have emerged. We have gathered the 5 applications free calls or cheap VoIP to mobile or landline which we consider the best in our tests and that are also best evaluated by specialist publications and users around the world.
This is one of the best application of VoIP, although not as popular as well. With this, you can make free calls to anywhere in the world. A single condition is that the two parties must install the app Toolani. After installation, you can send multimedia messages to the cellular target, without having to pay anything for it. For links to users who do not have the Toolani or fixed appliances, the cost varies with the country to which you are connecting.
More popular than the Toolani, this other application is very popular to make free calls and send messages. In addition, it supports video and group calling, with packages of services to companies, users and even providers of services. Depending on the country where you are calling, the calls can cost as little as 1 cent per minute!
Viber is almost like a competitor to WhatsApp, mainly in the number of users (in Brazil, at least). It supports different platforms, such as Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows Phone and other. Phone calls from Viber are free anywhere in the world, in addition to the texts, chats and calls in the group. The audio quality in high definition is the main reason why the majority of users in the VoIP opt for this app. After the installation, it will scan your contact list and will tell you that you already have the app, so that you can connect and spend credits or a call without having to. Remembering: only calls from Viber to Viber are free. For mobile phone numbers or landlines, you will use the Viber Out and pay tariffs (and cheap) for that.
This is one of the most famous apps – and oldest – in our list. It allows users to make calls and send text messages without any payment. A great advantage is that it is even available for devices that use Java as their operating system, Symbian OS or Kindle Fire. In the same way that Viber Out, the Nimbuzz Out is how this app charges its users for links to people who do not have Nimbuzz. The most interesting? Links that cost LESS than 1 cent per minute for some countries.
WiCall is a cheaper alternative to the main applications of VoIP such as Skype, Viber, Fring etc. There is no plan or agreement with the service and your credits last for up to 1 year. As it is not so well known, win its users through cheap price and competitive!
