Free PC-Phone Calls

Hi, i know there used to be websites that allowed people to make free calls to phone lines from them, but i seem to be unable to find these any more!! :( Does anyone know of any FREE Pc-Phone programs/websites that will work in the UK, and in particular the channel islands

Hi qwertykeyboard,
I've never encountered anything that will do free PSTN termination (calling phone lines).  Someone has to pay for it....
qwertykeyboard and scampgb,

I believe it was Dialpad when they first started up in '99 that the service was free within the US from a PC terminating to local PSTN numbers using their client to many of the major areas in the US. Needless to say, they no longer offer free service.
The one I use is <a href="">Skype</a>

Its not free to any line, as scampgb says - someone has to pay for it!

But I am finding Skype to be clearer than a conventional telephone line when calling other users, even half way round the world. There does seem to be a bit of a delay when calling a normal phone line but the free international calls are a definite winner!

Hope that helps.
