Techshare: Free phone calls!

[ ]

Plug-and-play PBX technology ? Yes- and it's free.
( PBX is a contraction of Private Branch Exchange [ wikilink ] )

The idea behind using IP-PBX (internet protocol private branch exchange) is that there are already internet-to-trunk gateways that permit calls from a computer to a real-world phone (SkypeOut is an example of this), and while a major telephone company might charge to service your phone from home, if you have a high-speed internet connection, you can bypass the need for a carrier.

There's an Android app called [ sipdroid ] that allows for (essentially) free calls over wifi/3G connections.

Something worth looking into if you're interested in getting a free phone number and making calls via wifi.


  1. Is there anything the Internet can't do?

    In all seriousness this is pretty awesome, going to have to give it a try :)
