Any VOIP applications for making international calls?

Just starting my research and thought I would post up here first. Looking for something that will allow me (actually my mom) to make phone calls to the Phillippines over he internet. Thanks for any help.

I was just reading up on it. Thanks man. I'll have to see how the rates compare to my mom using her calling card thing. Looks interesting though.

Anyone have personal experience with this?

Skype is great, I can't comment on international calls, but all outgoing US and Canada calls are free till the end of 2006.

Yep, that's what most folks use here to call home.


You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, even months over analyzing a situation.. trying to put the pieces back together, justifying what could've, should've and would've happened or you can leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on!!

Well I just talked to my mom and it's actually cheaper for her to use the calling card ($11 something an hour on Skype vs. $9 something for an hour and a half on her calling card).

Vonage is 18 cents a minute to there so it's even more. Service was good though!

No fast cars though
