A friend of mine suggested me this method by placing international calls for free by using magic jack. I meant it is not entirely free, you still have to pay the annual fee for magic jack. A friend of mine who has family living in VietNam, so he brought a magic jack back to his mother country, and he taught his family members there to connect the magic jack to the Fast DSL running computer. When he returns to the states, he use his already - bought magic jack to start calling his family in Vietnam, which significantly reducing the international calling fees. I still have some doubt on it. Even though it might work, would the calling quality still stable? Because once I used magic jack, and I just don't vouch the quality. Do you think it will work?

I have not heard of this magic jack but I have another suggestion. Try www.skype.com You just need an internet connection, microphone and a speaker. Calls are free. Call quality is good and it supports messaging at the same time. Calls can be made to landlines too at a charge, not sure how much is it for your country. You can check out the website for more information.

Calls to landline and mobile phones are not free. And usually it is more expensive than other VoIP options around.

Yes it will work as long as the country doesn't block VoIP calls. I am a VoIP user too and I use my Onesuite VoIP account anywhere I go and it works all the time. It has a US number so I can be reach from the US without paying for overseas call. Call quality is good and rates are pretty cheap too. VoIP will soon be the major means of overseas communication.

true, cutting cost is the major concern right now at everything. Not only energy consumption, but all aspects of our living style. That might be the good idea too.
