What is the best free internet phone service?


Recommended Posts

After years of sending emails and FB messages to my friend in Australia I now realise (yeah, I'm slow) that I could be making phone calls. What's a good free service that allows me to call them and possibly have a video connection as well?

We Chat is a Chinese run platform with suspicion that they collect data and spy on their users. Up to you..

I find Wechat the best  

For privacy reason, I am using Line. Anything related to Facebook is a no-go. Facetime is Apple, and that stuff will never step in my house (or mobile).

Don't forget you also need a good internet provider at both ends.

What I find confusing as an "at last" Smart phone user is the differences on the conversation in both forms, voice and message.

I have Whatsapp and LINE on my laptop and phone.    I have Skype on my laptop but only used a few times in the past for contacting family in UK.  My children in UK have both Whatsapp and LINE.

If both parties have Facebook messenger you can call and even have a Video call for free.  

Have tried that, but I keep getting message that contact is "unreachable", whatever that means.

Basically it means that the person does not have Facebook Messenger turned on.  For a conventional phone service try Viber.  Cheap phone calls like 2 cents  USD per minute.  You can even get unlimited for $4.99 per month.
