Internet Phone – A bond between you and your loved ones

Updated on August 28, 2011

Internet Phones Keep You In Touch With Your Loved Ones

The ability to make internet phone calls is the future of saying in touch with family as well as business clients and good friends. This article discusses the benefits of using VoIP (Voice over IP) for making your telephone calls over the internet.

We all love our dear ones and wish to remain with them all the time, but due to our personal and professional lives and other issues, it has not been possible. On top of which, once we grow older, our siblings, parents and friends; all get scattered and it’s hard to meet them regularly as they are in different regions of the world. This problem has been resolved by the creation of internet phone service that connects us to our loved ones anywhere and at anytime.

With the traditional phone service, there are many issues and hindrances that create troubles for us in staying close to our loved ones. The most important issues are the high costs and the quality of calls being made.

Internet Phone Call Costs

With the traditional phone service, the problems of getting heavy phones bills that are dreadful at the end of the month are expected. Plus, due to the lack of options; we are bound to pay higher costs for calling nationwide and even higher calls for calling internationally. It is actually a novelty to see any good calling plans with the traditional phone service. Furthermore, the per minute charges make the call rates go as high as $40 with the traditional phone service. The good news is, thankfully, the internet phone has made it possible to throw out all these cost issues related with calling nationwide and internationally. The internet phone service offers a broad variety of residential packages from which you can make a good choice by carefully analyzing your needs and wants.

When I first moved to the UK from America calling home was a rare thing (not just because of time differences, and when the internet solves that problem my family will never hear the end of me!). My first solution was to use calling cards

User-Friendly Internet Phone

The internet phone service is not only state-of-the-art but it is extremely user friendly for all ages. Your grand-father can use it as easily as you or you 6 year old nephew. If you can dial a modern phone or even an old rotary one (you know, the ones that had to be wound all the way round for each number, am I showing my age here?) you can use the advanced internet phone just like a regular phone.

Good internet phone service providers like Axvoice give a full back-up plan to all its customers in case of power failure or any other issue and guides you through each step in order to get well-acquainted with the internet phone service. Problems with power or internet were a must for any good provider and is why the internet phone has taken this long to become a good and reliable phone service.

Area Code Facility and Number Portability

Apart from many features and basic flexibility options given by internet phone, there are many other benefits too. For example, the area code facility. The users of internet phone service can have a phone number for any area whether they live there or not and can avail a service as good as ever before.

The benefit for this facility is that users can have an area code of a place where most of their family members live especially parents and give them a convenience of calling them any time at local rates from a traditional phone service. Users can even keep their phone numbers the same as they had been using on the traditional phone service and they can enjoy the internet phone service by just switching to VoIP phone service from their traditional phone service.

So, get the internet phone for yourself and your friends and family too so that you all can stay connected all the time. The most recommendable VoIP service would be Axvoice as it is very affordable, uses latest technology and promises to deliver supreme services to all its customers. You can easily trust Axvoice and give all your communication worries to it and enjoy the unlimited pleasure and benefits provided by Axvoice internet phone.

      I am trying to use JoinMe for a voice conrnfeece only. However, it doesn't seem like I can have one user sign in via VOIP and the other user sign in via telephone. Is that possible?

      Yes even now, VoIP is known the cheapest phone service in the market. You would not find any competitor of VoIP in terms of price. If you are using VoIP, that means you are getting unlimited calls only in $10-20. That makes it quite attractive for pockets with low income.

      As far as the call cost of internet phone is concerned, it has become an identity for voIP phone service. Even in the begining when it was not known as the best phone service in terms of quality, people were switching to VoIP just keep their phone cost low.

      I usually prefer VOIP services like Rebtel. Its much cheaper, IMHO and one could just use their regular phone

      Thanks for stopping by Majadez! Glad you enjoyed this article, lets hope that a good open market that allows for good competition between providers keeps the service a brilliant one! Otherwise, I'll just go back to using a landline! LOL

      There's nothing that beats the value you get by being able to connect to loved ones and bridging a gap between distances.

      I used to be in the VoIP industry. There are many VoIP companies out there and they come with the major players putting more and more rules in place to restrict VoIP use and increase their profits. However, VoIP is definately the future of telecommunications.

      Good hub. ;)
