India is one of the most popular destinations for Voip service providers. The testimony to this is the fact that there are a number of voip service providers that offer unlimited India calling packages. We have reviewed a few of such offers including Lingo’s hack to call India unlimited for $10.63 and also the newest Vonage’s $9.99 unlimited calls to India plan (For USA only). Today we introduce another unlimited India calling plan by SimpleCall for $11.99 per month. Simplecall has been around for quite some time and in fact we reviewed them at CorVoIP about the same time last year in this post where they offered 60 mnutes of free international phone calls.

Customer support: Online customer support with live chat guarantees there will be someone if you face problems.
Cheap calls: You can not go wrong with that
Ways to Call: Supports calls from wifi and 3G over mobile, pc to phone calls, phone to phone calls, and SIP calls too.
One plan per account: You can only buy one plan per month per account
Limited Access numbers: There are 2-3 access numbers per state. One might face a busy line problem.
Online numbers: No support for numbers such as by Google Voice, thus customers outside USA are kind of out of luck.
Fair use policy: The plan is capped at 2000 minutes. This is not a truely unlimited plan.
Rollover minutes: If you do not use your 2000 minutes you lose them.
If you still have questions this video might answer them. Visit their website to learn more. If you do not use that many minutes in a month you might want to go for a pay as you go plan. The best that we have as of today is IndiaLd’s 25 cent per call plan. If you do not make long lasting calls then you should go for IndiaLD’s 0.8 cent per minute calls to India.
