Call Romania using Web Activated Telephony and SmartCall or TelefonIP

Advanced users have probably figured out immediately how to do this after reading the previous post. For the rest of readers the current post should provide the missing information. Also is very important to mention that SmartCall and TelefonIP are 2 VoIP providers that offer good rates with Romania.

Step 1. Create an account with either one of these 2 providers.

Step 2. Create an account with a provider has offers free phone calls to US (or your living country).

Step 3. Register your selected providers with VoXaLot and eventually add entries to your VoXaLot Web Callback Phonebook.

That’s all. Each time you want to call family/friends or business partners in Romania, just log in to VoXaLot account and click on the appropriate phonebook entry. Your landline/mobile phone will start ringing and in a few seconds you’ll be connected with your destination.

I’ve been using TelefonIP for quite a while now, and it’s been an enjoyable experience. Thanks for your good advice!

It saved me money twofold; first they have very good rates, and secondly I’m making fewer calls now, since my parents and friends can call me like they would call any local number.

The only problem is their downtime, especially during some weekends. But overall it’s great.

I’m sure the other companies you mention are quite good too. By the way, in a previous post you talk about a multitude of companies that offer free calls inside the US.

Which one should I pick? Right now I don’t have a long distance provider, and I have to use my cell phone when making calls outside my local area.

Thanks again for your great advice!

Claudiu,

You can try internetcalls.com for free calls within the US. I use it and it works pretty well. They also offer 1c (euro) / min. with Romania as well. IC is SIP compatible and also has a Windows client similar to Skype.
