Do you want free calls? Is there an alternative for Skype? Voipbuster is the answer.
I am an happy costumer.
Are you still struggling with telephone bills? Do you call other countries regularly?
I'm not living in my home country, but my family and old friends are all there. I used to spend loads of money calling my parents. I remember buying cards at the post office that I would have to call a number and then type a number code from the card on the telephone...and still, I would see my money fly away for a couple of minutes.
Fortunately I discovered VoipBuster. I have been using it for around 3 or 4 years now.
Voipbuster belongs to a company from Germany called Betamax. They also have other options apart from Voipbuster. (You might find another one better than VoipBuster for you)
How does it work?
Well, the first thing you need to do is to create an account and download the free software from www.voipbuster.com
Once you have the software installed on your computer and created an account, you can do a free call (limited to 1 minute) to any of the Free destinations. I advise you to do some tests to see if you like it until you actually top up your account with some money.
Money you said? Isn't it free? Well, let's get this explained:
With Voipbuster (like in Skype) you can call another Voipbuster account (always free) or call mobile phones and landlines. Regarding calling other Voipbuster accounts you only need to add the nickname of the person to your list and then you just need to check if the person is online...if the other person is online just click on it and start talking for free. (you don't even need money in your account)
If you want to call landlines and mobile phones then you can check the prices at voipbuster website.
The good news is that calling to landlines is very cheap. The better news is that if you top up your account you will get many countries (landlines) for free for four months. So, when you put 10 Euros in your account (Paypal accepted) it will give you the number of days that you can call for free to some countries. After those days expire you can still use the money on your account but you won't have free calls anymore. (normal rates will apply, very cheap ones)
If you want to keep calling for free, just top up again and the free calls will be activated again for another four months.
Every time you make a call you will be showed the rate for that call. So you will know if you can relax or speak fast. :)
The other good news is that Voipbuster can be used via SIP. Basically Sip is a system that will allow you to set up Voipbuster on your mobile phone. (I know that on iPhone it works fine, with iSip app. Only on Wi-Fi connections)
So, to sum up:
1. Create your VoipBuster Account
2. Download and Install the free software
3. Test it with another Voipbuster account or calling for a minute to one of the "free" countries
4. Top up your account
5. Enjoy your free calls to many countries landlines and good prices to mobile phones and other countries landlines.
6. Let me know what you think of it. :)
Do not forget that the prices and rules might change and this hub is just informative. Please check Voipbuster website for more accurate and up to date details.
