Forum Thread: Are There Any Open Source Programs That You Could Make Phone Calls From?

I was curious if there were any open source programs where you could make phone calls via computer. Communication from computer to phone, or phone to computer.

One option would be to use e.g. software like Skype: Top Up some money and then call mobile phones or land lines.

Another option would be to use a 3g/GSM USB stick like the 'Huawei E169 3G/GSM USB stick'.

(Of course I know that Skype is not open source.)

Good luck,

There are lots of VoIP systems out there but most cost money to purchase..however they are cheaper than traditional calling because they are sent over the internet.

In your case, stick to skype because it is easy and offers free video and voice calling (phone calling costs small fees)
