This isn’t quite a “freebie” freebie, but it’s free. If that makes any sense whatsoever. Anyways, a new company called Future Phone is promising unlimited, free international calling from the U.S. to 55 countries. According to their website, “We’re offering this service for free in order to build up the company’s brand-name recognition. Our plan is to offer additional services in the future” and go on to say that the service will remain free until 2010.
You can call from any telephone (you don’t have to fuss with VOIP software on your computer.) Start by dialing Futurephone’s gateway at 1-712-858-8883 (located in Iowa.) Follow the voice prompts to choose your language, then dial 011 followed by the international telephone number. In a few seconds, you’ll be connected to that number.

Now my cell phone plan allows for free calls in the US, so the call to Future Phone in Iowa won’t cost me a dime. But I thought about what I’d do if I didn’t have such a cell plan and I came up with this. If you have a free Skype account, it allows for free calls in the US. So simply log onto that, call Iowa, and then call the rest of the world. It’s fast, it’s free, and now you can finally prank phone call people in Bulgaria!
