How to call for free: Does your mobile phone card last you less and less? Even if you try to tighten your belt as much as possible, do you always end up spending a fortune on your phone bill? Maybe you could help yourself and lighten your phone bills a bit by using smartphone apps and online services. I know a few that allow you to call for free.

That’s right! All you need is an active Internet connection and thanks to the right solutions you can call all over Italy (but not only) without spending a cent. If you don’t believe it and want to understand better what I’m talking about, here it is how to call for free mobile phones and landlines using the web.

If you want to find out how to call for free from your mobile phone you can contact Viber, a free VoIP solution for iPhone, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry that allows all users who have installed the app on their smartphone to call each other free of charge all over the world via an Internet connection. You don’t even need to create an account to use it, just use your mobile number.

If you are interested and want to test it for yourself, all you have to do is access the store of your smartphone and install the app Viber on the phone. When the operation is complete, start the application and follow the guided procedure that is proposed to you. At this juncture, you must allow Viber to access your phone book (in order to automatically add all friends who use Viber to your contacts) and type a confirmation code that you will receive via SMS after entering your mobile number.

After completing this very simple initial setup phase, you can make free Internet calls to all your friends who use Viber simply by selecting them from the screen Contacts of the app or by dialing their phone number with the numeric keypad that appears on the screen by pressing on Keypad.

For the phone calls to be successful, both interlocutors must have installed and activated Viber on your mobile phone (regardless of the model or operating system used) and that both of them have a good Internet connection.

If you prefer instead call for free a landline number using PC, my advice is to try EvaPhone. This is an online service that does not require registration and that allows you to make free calls every day in Italy for a duration of about 8 minutes.

To use it, all you have to do is connect to its home page, dial the number to call (preceded by the international prefix 39) using the virtual keypad located in the center of the screen and click on the button Dial. The call will start immediately and you can talk to whoever is on the other side using the microphone on your PC or webcam.

To end the calls, just click on the red button Hangup or hang up the phone (for those on the other side). Of course, in addition to the free service, a paid version of EvaPhone which allows you to make online calls all over the world at affordable rates. For this to work, you need to have installed the Flash Player Adobe on your computer.
