Free SkypeOut dialing hack
Yes you too can get free skypeout calls! Just like everything else thats free from good old internet it involves exposing yourself to advertising. 1-800 calls from skype are (as on most other services) free so by making use of 1-800-free411 you bypass paying for the call. Here’s what you do.
- Use skype to dial 1-800-FREE411
- Tell the voice recognition at the ther end the city and party you want to connect to
- You will then get to listen to an advertisement
- You will then be connected with your party having not used any skypeout minutes
Now as with anything this isn’t without it’s caveats, and here they are
- You have to use a voice recognition system 🙁
- You can only call people or businesses listed in the FREE411.com database (currently limited to the USA)
- You have to deal with advertising
But if you’re in a pinch with no skypeout minutes available this can be a life saver.
Cheers to Mr Tom Keating over at VoIP blog for figuring this out
