With the advent of VOIP technologies, it has become a cheaper substitution of land lines or mobile phones in telecommunication domain. Today, let me tell you a trick by which we can talk to any land phone or mobile phone through Gtalk voice facility and that too for free!
Assuming that you have a working headset with microphone and a Gtalk already installed (if not) in your PC, I shall now proceed.
- You can add the phone number of your relatives/friends in the same manner as adding contacts in Gtalk, but make sure to append @talkster.gtalk2voip.com at the end of the phone number having the following format:[country code] - [area code] - [phone number]
- Add the number in you Gtalk similar to the examples below:
3. Wait for a few seconds until you get a confirmation and instructions. You will be assigned a local phone number in which your relatives/friends can use to contact you
Remember that you cannot make out-going calls for more than 10seconds. Your friend must call the local number assigned to you (that is linked to your gtalk account), to be able to talk with your friend for free using Gtalk.
