We posted about free calls to Pakistan recently. That service only allows you to make free calls to Pakistan. A large number of our readers are looking for great ways to make free calls to india. We have already posted about Ringplus and Free-411 both of which are ad based voip services which let you make free calls to India and also free international calls to rest of the world.
Today we bring you another great offer to make absolutely free unlimited calls to India. Moreover, unlike Ringplus and Free-411 this time we have something for our readers from UK and Brazil too. To get these unlimited free calls to India you just need to make a local call and then dial your destination number. It is a service by freecall2india. It seems there website has not been updated in a long time. It looks like a parked website as of now. Try your luck with the phone numbers though.
To make a free call to India you need to follow these steps:
- Call to access number:- For USA the access number is (1-631-763-1059), for UK it is (0844-880-2451) and for Brazil it is (RJ 21-7878-8511, BH 31-7878-8511)
- Let it ring as long as they do not respond.
- When they respond enter 1
- Dial your destination number in 91-XXXXXXXXXX format and talk for unlimited time.
I have tried it myself. First time my friend in India could not hear my voice so I tried again and Bingo! it worked like a charm. Depending on your cellular service provider calls to these local access numbers may be charged. I used Google Voice to make these calls. The voice quality is not at par with others but hey this is absolutely free to complain about great quality.
We hope you will like it. If you are able to make free calls please comment and let us know. Please do comment if you can not make calls too so that we can update this post as per your experience. Happy Free Calling to India. Note that all these services are supported by either advertisers or some other sponsor and thus will go away in no time. Calling India is not a free affair, someone must pay for it. If it is not you then someone else is paying for it, and obviously they will want to recover their expenses from you somehow. However, if you do not give more information than it is safe, such as your phone number, they cannot potentially call and harass you. So, keep the privacy of your information in mind and make some free calls to India. If you do not see that these guys are still in business please do us all a favor by leaving that information here via a comment or in the forums.
Update: It seems Ringplus has changed their service a little bit. They no longer provide you free calls with no strings attached. However, they do give free calls to India if you deposit $10 with them. If you talk for more than a few minutes (5 minutes I guess), then they will charge the money in your account to cover the costs.
