5 Ways to Make Free Phone Calls from internet ( PC to Phone calls)

It is true - you can make free phone calls using the Internet!
Most of the free phone call applications I list below are PC to phone programs, meaning you can make a free call from your computer to a real telephone number so you don't even need a telephone yourself. Some of the other free internet phone programs will connect your real phone to another real phone for free, making a long distance plan unnecessary.
No matter how it works, it's a free call!
To make a free call using an Internet phone, you might have to download free phone call software or use a soft phone from an Internet phone provider website.

1. Google Voice

As of November 2010, Google Voice is the very best way to make free Internet phone calls. With Google Voice, you can make free phone calls, free PC to phone calls (via Google Talk browser plugin), and free PC to PC calls (also via Google Talk).
Google Voice is much more than a way to make free phone calls on the Internet. Google Voice is primarily a way to manage the phone numbers in your life and can be used to intelligently route incoming calls to your free phone number provided by Google Voice to any other phone you have. With Google Voice, you can also get free SMS, make a free conference call, and get free voice mail services.
Free calls you make with Google Voice must be to numbers in the United States or Canada.
Google Voice is available as a web app that you can use in any browser, including mobile browsers (as pictured here). Dedicated apps are available for Android and BlackBerry users and a few unofficial apps are available for iPhone users. An official Google Voice iPhone app is supposedly in the works.
Free phone calls with Google Voice are limited to three hours. However, you can continue to make a free call to the same number again and again.
To use Google Voice to make free PC to phone calls, install the Google Chat video and voice plug-in here. Once installed, you can make free calls from Gmail to real phones using just your PC microphone and speakers.

2.  iCall

iCall is another tool you can use to make free internet phone calls. With iCall, you can make free calls from PC to phone using their free software.
The computer that you make calls from can be anywhere in the world but for the call to be free, the number you call must be in the United States or Canada. You can't make free phone calls using iCall if you're calling outside the US or Canada.
iCall is available as a free desktop application for Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux and as a free iPhone app. Free phone calls will be disconnected after a short five minutes but you can call the number back again as many times as you want. You will also hear an advertisement before each call that's around ten seconds long.
A flash-based version of iCall is also available on their website but free calls here are limited to three minutes.

How To Use iCall:

Making free calls with iCall is very easy. Just start the program and log in. After iCall connects, dial the number you want to call from the Dial tab and then click Place call.
After clicking Place call, a short (around 10 seconds) advertisement will play. When that's over, iCall will connect you to whatever number you dialed - for free.
You can also make free calls directly from the iCall website, meaning you won't have to download or install any software. However, calls are limited to three minutes using this interface.
A free iCall iPhone app is also available.

3. EvaPhone

EvaPhone is yet another way to make free Internet phone calls. EvaPhone lets you make free, but incredibly short, PC to phone calls all from a Flash-based interface right on their website.
What makes EvaPhone unique is that you can call nearly any phone in the entire world for free. Another thing that makes EvaPhone unique is how incredibly short that free call is. Free calls range from ten seconds to one minute in length, depending on the destination. You're also also limited to just two calls per day.
After dialing a number on EvaPhone, you'll watch a short video advertisement and then your free call will begin. A countdown timer will begin so you know when you'll be disconnected.
I certainly don't think EvaPhone is the best way to make a free call on the Internet, but if you need to tell someone something fast, don't have your own phone, and don't want to pay for the call or download software, EvaPhone might be the perfect free Internet phone for you.

How To Use EvaPhone:

To make a free call with EvaPhone, you first have to visit their website here.
Once there, choose the country associated with the phone number you're dialing. The country code will automatically be inserted, after which you should enter the phone number you'd like to make the free call to. Finally, click the phone icon.
 Free calls made with EvaPhone are severely limited, based on the free call's destination.

3. Freebuzzer

Another Internet phone that can be used to make free phone calls is Freebuzzer.
Freebuzzer works a lot like Google Voice in that it connects your phone with the phone number you dial. Your free call is limited to a very short two minutes and you can only make three free calls per day.
The good news is that free phone calls with Freebuzzer can be made to over 40 countries. Since most Internet phones restrict free calls to the US and Canada, Freebuzzer might be your only bet for free calls to certain countries.

How To Use Freebuzzer:

To make a free call with Freebuzzer, all you have to do is visit their site here.
Once there, enter Your Phone Number and the Destination Phone Number, followed by the Security Code shown.
Make sure Your Phone is ready and then click on Free Call. Freebuzzer will ring Your Phone, and the Destination Phone, and connect you for free.
 Free calls made with Freebuzzer are limited to two minutes, at which point you'll be disconnected

5. Tuitalk

Tuitalk is another Internet phone that works much like EvaPhone. With Tuitalk, however, you have to download their free Internet phone software.
Tuitalk lets allows you to make free phone calls to around 40 countries. Each country in which you make your free phone call is limited to a certain number of minutes per call and per day. For most countries, your free Internet phone call can be six minutes in length.
Before your free call with Tuitalk is connected, you have to watch several seconds of a high-quality video advertisement.

You can download Tuitalk for free here.
Once downloaded, install the program, run it, and then click the Not a member yet? link at the bottom of the program window to sign up.

Making a free call with Tuitalk is pretty easy. First, start the program and log in. Select the country you want to call, enter the phone number, and then click the phone icon.
