As the summer season starts, we most often travel to our native place or to our favorite hill station. As we know, technology plays an important role in our busy daily schedule. There is hardly any day in our lives when we are not equipped with gadgets and especially Smartphones. It has now become the life of people. However nobody wants that their life line should come with a surprise phone bill. There is no problem in visiting your preferred destination, but the problem is how to get rid of long wireless mobile bills. As nothing is impossible in this world, every problem has its solution and this problem too has a solution. Here in this article I am mentioning some smart tips to call abroad without denting your bank balance.
Today there are so many places like restaurants, organizations, hotels, etc. which provide wireless network services i.e. WI FI. So you can make the most of this situation and call people using Smartphones without wasting any time.
Here are some android applications with which you can call abroad, without paying a single penny and using technology known as VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol).
FREE CALLS WITH MAGIC JACK
This app allows you to make free calls even if you are outside the country. It’s voice quality is very good. The other feature is that you can transfer your phone number in this app and dial by name. You can also use it for free, but you will be able to access only outgoing features and not incoming. To activate incoming as well as Voice mail features you have to register on it’s app account. One thing to remember is, that while running this app you will get different numbers which will start and end by asterisk marks only.
