Free fone for all

I wrote about Google Voice in Free US long distance for more people.  It’s come in rather handy at the moment as I just lost my phone.  I’m suffering smartphone withdrawal while its replacement is on the way.  But my clients don’t have a clue.  All their calls come to me like normal.  It took me a whopping 30 seconds to switch my Google Voice number from my AWOL Blackberry to my office landline.

There are now numerous free calling options from Google Voice to Skype to apps for the iPhone and over Wifi.  David Pogue of the NY Times does a nice job summarizing them, including TruPhone, Fring, Line2, FreePhone2Phone, Textfree with Voice, Talkatone, Nettalk, and Whistle Phone, in the Ins and Outs of Calling via the Net and the Appendix: Apps for Free Calls to Regular Phones.
