To get the best possible sound quality, we highly recommend you try the following:
Use a headset with a built in microphone. Headsets are available for purchase at most computer
retailers and will dramatically improve sound quality.
Tell your friend to get a headset. Note that voice quality is affected by the equipment on
both sides of the conversation. The best way to ensure high quality sound is to have a headset
on both ends of the conversation.
If you don't have a headset, you are still likely to improve sound quality if you:
Use headphones instead of your computer speakers
Try moving the microphone closer or further away from your mouth
Use an external microphone (note that most laptops use low-quality microphones)
Update your soundcard drivers
Note that if you don't own a microphone, you may be able to use a pair of headphones
as a temporary solution by connecting these to the microphone jack of your sound card. Try it!
Buying credits entitles you to 120 Freedays (unless stated otherwise). This means you can call all countries in the free* destinations list for 120 days at no costs. When the 120 days are over, you will keep your credit, and the normal rate will be charged for these destinations.
Nothing! - if you are calling any land line in one of our free* destinations, or any of your online friends.
Calls to all other (PSTN) phone numbers will be charged the applicable tariff for the destination you are calling. Rates are in Eurocents per minute and calls are rounded up to next minute. Apart from that there are no other charges; no subscription, registration, or administration fees!
