    Since betamax’s service is so bad and rates vary so much, so fast without updating website information. You might want to go for skype for international calling. But the only thing I don’t like about skype is that people have to use it with computers. People have tried to use it with asterisk. But I’m not sure how well it works.

    wakacall offers free minutes and easy calling card solution

    Wakacall plan is from voipagain(VoipAgain.com).

    It’s rates can be seen on http://www.voipagain.com/rates.htm and choose wakaCall or go to http://www.voipagain.com/waka30.htm directly. They offer different plans. Wakacall is one of them, which is currently active.

    They offer free minutes to the free zones. To see the free zones, go to http://www.voipagain.com/rates.htm and choose wakaCall free zone or go to http://www.voipagain.com/wakacall.htm directly.

    They have another free minutes policy which is also kind of tricky.

    *FREE CALL Rules:


  • Maximum 500 minutes of FREE CALLS to our FREE destinations over any 7 day period.
  • We want you to experience our service for yourself.
  • Your first 10 minutes of calls to over 30 selected countries using our service will be FREE.
  • After the first 10 minutes of FREE calls, if you’re over 11 minutes, you will be automatically
          charged for the whole minutes based on the destination.
  • When the 500 minute FREE limit is exceeded, normal rate will be automatically charged based on the destination.
  • The voice quality not only depends on the destination, your network quality etc, but also the calling softphone/device. My experience is that eyebeam 1.1 is better than xlite 3.0 and BuzzSip. I have not tried it with devices.

    There are one set of username/password for web login, one set of account#/pin# for calling account. To configure wakacall on sip phone:

    For wakaCall Plan
