I read in one of the the threads about a cheap phone call supplier called something like Jah Jahah. I am moving to India for three months and want to use this service instaed of SKYPE. Does anyone know the correct web address?

Hi, never heard of it, even Google has not got it! Anyway, why not Skype? the best thing since sliced bread.

"even Google has not got it!"

Though Jajah is for connecting landline to landline, I think both party's have to register via a PC and then use a PC to connect. Also I think you will find India is not in the so called free zone.
As above you may be better with skype or. click here

"Though Jajah is for connecting landline to landline, I think both party's have to register via a PC and then use a PC to connect."

Not so, You can connect to any land line or mobile No. through Jajah, without the other party being registered to Jajah and without him/her having a PC, I know I use it along with Skype. Just read the FAQs on the Jajah web site it will give you all the info.
The best thing about Jajah though is, that you can connect Mobile to Mobile or landline from anywhere, without the use of a PC. Call prices are about the same as Skype.

thanks golfpro and everyone else, under normal circumstances I would use Skype but my wife does not want to go anywhere near a PC so Jajah is ideal. Will also use the site mentioned by Stuartli to check rates on a regular basis.

But if the other party is not registered the call will not be free. See this extract from their web page:
'Please confirm that the number you intend to call belongs to an "active user". An active user is a JAJAH user who has either placed a JAJAH call or sent a text message within the last two weeks.'
The above is given on their web page as a reason for why a call may not be free.

And in any case the calls in India will not be free, see their charges.
