Ccube Click to Call Free VOIP Calls

Lately, we have noticed a sudden increase in click to call solutions. Almost every new provider is eager to do Click to Call. Of course, its easy to maintain and work with.

Thanks to Rohin Adalja who sent over this news about CCube. Ccube is a social click to call service mainly targetted to visitors who wants to keep their phone numbers anonymous when they go over the internet. As they say, Ccube lets you talk to social friends, buyers, sellers, service providers, and anyone else on the phone, without revealing your number. All this is possible with their Click to Callwidget, which you need to install on your website/blog or just give a url to your friend.

CCube offers FREE 60 nationwide (US and Canada) minutes each month. You can earn 30 extra minutes for each person referred to Ccube.

Their registration is a bit tricky, so let me run you through.

1) Go to CCube Join now.
2) Enter your account details.
3) After submitting your Phone numbers, CCube will assign you a Voicekey.
4) You need to verify your number by calling their toll-free number 1-866-990-NEWZ (6399).

You can refer other friends, for each referral signup they will credit 30 minutes to your account.

Overall a good old click 2 call solution. Nothing fancy, most VOIP providers do it. The only good thing is its callback for Phone, so handy for people who like to talk Phone to Phone from USA to Canada or within the states.

Ether VOIP Hack for Free Calls

We just heard over at the Tipsity forums about a new service which will let you make free calls to many countries including UAE. All thanks to Satphoneguy for finding this new service.

The service is run by AT & T and its called Ether. However don't get misleaded by their homepage. Ether is actually a paid to talk service, where experts can charge people to talk to them. Like for example, I can setup a account on Ether with the following description.

Listing Name: VOIP Expert
Tags: Setting up VOIP phone, SIP networks, Telephony, VOIP
Pricing Plan: Free until "*"; $0.01 per minute; Repeat

That means I can help you setup your VOIP at your home or business. If you want to contact me, just dial my ether number 1-888-MY-ETHER ext. 02703XXX. So consider you live in Michigan, have a old sunrocket gizmo and want to hook up a SIP service with that. However you have little or no knowledge about SIP or VOIP, of course you have no clue how Sunrocket Gizmo can be unlocked. There you need some expert help, so you can contact me and I will charge you 0.01 cents per minute. Ether takes 15% commission.

Now this is all what Ether told you right. Now here is the ultimate hack to convert this to a totally Free Calling Haven. Lets see how we do it.

1) Go to Ether and register.
2) Add a phone number. currently Ether offers about 20 odd countries. No India sorrry. UAE is accepted which is extremely surprising.
3) While you add a number, rememeber to chose the option,
Allow customers to start the call for free. The rate below will begin when you press *.
Now this is the hack. Remember this.
4) Now Ether will assign you a extension number like 1-888-MY-ETHER ext. 02703XXX.
5) If someone wants to talk to you, give them this number, 1-888-MY-ETHER (1-888-69-38437) and ask them to enter your extension at the prompt.
6) your call will be connected but remember dont press *, coz that will trigger the billing :-)

Talk as much as you want, its all FREE. The only worry is it's a USA number, however they are various ways to call USA number for Free. You can use Earthcaller, icall or Truphone to make calls to that Ether number.

Satphoneguy has tested the service have successfully called up UK Mobile, Germany and USA. UK Mobile is never given away for FREE. This is a great opportunity to use Ether to make free calls.

Let us know where you made Free calls with this Ultimate new way.

IfbyPhone Free Click to Call VOIP

Almost every other VOIP provider today offers Click to Call solutions. It's easy to maintain and of course there is a higher possibility that people will be consuming it, since the owner doesnt have much control over the activity.

Click to call traditionally is a business VOIP solution. More targetted towards business users, however you can use it on your SOHO website or even personal blog.
IfbyPhone is currently offering free 100 minutes of talktime per month on their new click to call VOIP service called "Phone-me-now". The good thing about phone-me-now click to call VOIP service is you can use it on your webpage or even in Microsoft Word documents, PowerPoint Presentations and PDF documents. It works everything. Its a plain simple click to call url link. Whenever someone clicks on it, the user is prompted to enter their phone number. Ifbyphone calls them first and then connect your number.

Click to call services directly compete with Toll-Free services. Since Toll-free numbers literally cost thousands of dollars, often click to call hosted service can be as cheap as couple of $ per month. Its really is a great saving for SOHO or small business VOIP users.

Ifbyphone's Phone-me-now is currently offering 100 minutes free talktime for limited period only. If you don't want to miss on this one, you can signup today.

We have noticed they accept USA numbers ONLY. However they do mention international format which makes us think they might accepting other numbers but there is a limit of 10 digits. If you country code fits 10 digits, you might want to give it a try.

Companies like Tringme, also offers click to call VOIP hosted solutions on their TringSwitch platform, if you are interested in knowing about Tringme's hosted VOIP solution shoot me a email at shivkokroo(AT)

VOIP hack to make free worldwide calls

We posted about the ultimate VOIP hack a few days back. It seems that the Jaxtr guys fixed that bug. I guess they should pay us for finding bugs in their VOIP applications :-)

Moving on, our regular reader Sriram has sent us another great hack for Jaxtr. Lets see how we can use this to make free voip calls worldwide.

1) Download iCall softphone (u get 5mins free calls to US n Canada per call)
2) Register for an account with iCall.
3) Goto ur friend's profile in Jaxtr. Click Call Me button. Select United States in country list.
4) Now enter the iCall PhoneOut number 6464657602. Click Get Number button.
5) You'll get a US phone number to dial. (like 1-646-xxx-xxxx) Save that number somewhere.
6) Now, login to iCall softphone.
7) Enter the number u got from Jaxtr here and dial.
8) iCall allows free 5min calls to US and Canada per call. (iCall Pro users get unlimited free minutes to US n Canada.)
9) Talk for 5mins. Ur call will get disconnected after that. (iCall Pro users can talk longer).
10) U can redial the same number untill you are taken to the voicemail box. :-)

You could possibly use this with other Free VOIP services which gives you Free incoming US number. The trick is jaxtr should recognise that number while dialing in.

Good luck making free worldwide calls!
