Question

Web Based Phone


HI Guys,

I`m a newbie in VoIP

I Want to have a US Phone number which allow us answer the phone when we are online, (A Web Based phone system)

Do any company provide this?

If yes, please tell how we can use it?

Really we want to answer phone calls from internet not to answer them from a phone, so this will allow us to answer the calls worldwide,

Call transfer is not a good idea about this,

If you are saying about Call transfer, do you know any company provide transfer to IRAN too?

- Hamid

Broadband provider Covad Communications Group Inc. has an inexpensive Internet-based phone system that is compatible with conventional telephones.

Check them out! Hope it helps.

VOIP is Voice over IP, so whether its Skype, Vonage or any other provider they are same, but then it also matters hows the quality of Voice/Call.

No, i`m not in US,

Some of our staffs are in IR, some of them are in US, Some others are in IN, and...., So we require a WEB BASED phone to answer calls via a messenger,

Skype looks nice, and really cheap.

Does Skype charge per minute too? or 38$/y is the only fee?

I am looking at Skype also. The only fee is the 38$. If you use the "skype credits" instead of buying the yearly then you have a connect fee plus a per minute.

38/yr is only for unlimited through US and Canda, you need to pay per minute outside of those areas. The UK is only $0.03 a minute.

Free or not?

You mean if a person call your phone from UK, you`ll be charged for each minute? and when you receive calls from US, you`ll answer the phone and talk for free?

What is the diffrence between US and UK or others for them?

hmmm

i bought a pc package that was advertised on tv back in 2002.

it came with a bundle of software and games including an installed "yap phone" program. with a usb plug-in phone

i was making free calls back then, but it had a slight echo.

haven't even thought about it, till i saw this thread.

wonder if it still works?

skype is free for skype-to-skype calls.

if you have skype in you can RECEIVE calls for free on your skypein number. if you pay the unlimited fee, you can MAKE unlimited calls to the us and canada.

making calls elsewhere in the world, whether you have skypein or not, is charged at a rate per minute.
