Getting Free Phone Calls With Your PC

These days you can get just about anything on the internet and believe it or not that includes free phone calls. However that really depends on your definition of free because, as the old saying goes, there really is no such thing as a free lunch in this world anymore.

If you have ever wondered if you can use the internet and your computer to make free phone calls the answer is yes. In the last 10 years there have been incredible advances in the technology that allows people to make phone calls over a high speed internet connection to a regular phone anywhere in the world. The quality of the calls are getting better, the service and the technology are becoming easier to use, and the technology has also been developed to drop less calls than it used to. It has become so refined and available that there are even ways you can sign up to make all of your calls from your computer for free. Of course there are limitations and nothing is really free so you do wind up giving up something in the end but you can certainly make your outbound phone calls for no charge if you just find the right service.

The first thing you need to do is invest in an internet telephone router. These are readily available at any computer store and are not expensive at all. The next thing you need to do is find a reliable service on the internet that allows you to make PC to phone calls for free. The tricky part of this is finding a reliable service you can count on. In some cases criminals and internet hackers use the lure of free phone calls to get personal information from unsuspecting victims or use the downloads to put spyware or viruses on people’s computers. The one way you can protect yourself from criminals is to know that a free service does not require your personal and financial information. No credit card information should be needed and you should not have to give out your social security number. If you have to give out your social security number and credit card information then be suspicious and avoid that service all together. Always have your anti virus software on to check any software you are asked to download for viruses. Any service that sets off your anti virus software should be avoided.

Even in the best scenarios, with a vendor you trust and a download process that is safe, you are still in for some aggravation because even the best providers will hit your email account with spam and send you regular junk mail to your postal mailbox. That is the trade off for getting your phone service for free. You get to wade through junk mail and then you also get to enjoy free phone calls. The choice is yours but just know in advance that you will more than likely wind up on a lot of junk mail lists if you sign up for free phone service and it is up to you whether or not the trade off is worth it.
