Here’s how to make free ‘local’ calls to USA
The receiver doesn't need an internet connection to talk!
It’s 2019 and there are plenty of ways to make calls around the world. What’s better is that most of them also don’t cost you a single penny. But we’re here to tell you how you can make free calls to America without the reciever of the call in United States having an internet connection.
Services like WhatsApp calls, Facetime, Facebook Messenger etc. not only allow you to make calls but also let you video call without having to pay a single penny. There are data costs associated with these calls, but given how cheap data (even mobile data, thanks to Jio) has become, these costs can easily be neglected.
But there is a drawback while using services like ones mentioned above. These services also require the receiver of the call in the USA to have an internet action. If the receiver doesn’t have an active internet connection, there’s no way you can connect with them without spending a bomb on international calls.
And if the network of the person receiving the call is choppy, the call quality suffers too.
But fortunately, there’s a way to make free calls to the United States which makes use of your internet connection. But in this case, the receiver (the person in the USA) doesn’t need to be connected to the internet and receives calls via his/her mobile network.
How can I make free local calls to the United States?
1) Install the Rebtel app from the App Store or the Google Play Store.
2) Once you install the application, you’ll need to give calling and contact permissions (if you’re using an Android).
3) It’ll then ask you to enter your mobile number which then has to be verified via an OTP.
4) After you’ve successfully logged in and are into the application you need to activate the ‘US Unlimited Free’ pack.
5) To do this, click on the settings menu found at the bottom right of the screen.
6) Click on the international calling tab and select the United States from the list.
7) It’ll now show you the option to activate the ‘US Unlimited Free’ pack. Click on this button and get it activated.
8) Once activated, you can place calls to all USA numbers (mobile numbers and landline) with the help of the dialler on the home screen of the application.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE REBTEL APPLICATION
I have tried the service to make a couple of calls and have been certainly impressed with the voice clarity. There’s next to no lag while talking and the conversation is almost instantaneous. If you have a mobile data connection too, the application automatically selects between it or WiFi depending on which can give you a better calling experience.
You can use this service to also make calls to other countries like Canada, Australia, UAE amongst various others, at really affordable rates. You can choose to buy the pack of a particular country or buy a monthly subscription that gives you the ability to make calls to all countries supported by the Rebtel service.
