    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.

    Accepted Solution

    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.
