You would generally need a VOIP account with a carrier. In Australia we use mytel.com.au .

They give you an account with all the details.

You can then buy a VOIP handest and you log on to this handset via your web browser and configure the account through it.

An example of a VOIP phone is the Linksys SPA941 or SPA942.

Another option is to use a softphone (installed on your computer). This should start some discussion.

Good Luck

Without Purchase, you cannot do anything with the Avaya IP phone. (Since it only connects to the Avaya controller)

You basically need a Handset which supports the SIP protocol at both locations. Then you need to sign up with a SIP provider like justvoip.com frecall.com etc which offers free calling between members.  You can alternately purchase credit to call phones.

Use the above link as an example and search google for more info. search for SIP phones.

You can even buy 2 handsets which support Skype at both locations.
All you need to then have is a broadband connection and you can talk for free without a PC.

mshakeb, one more thing. If VOIP and SIP services are banned in your country then I would advise you to stay away from these. As they will not work :)
