Can you use a computer to make telephone calls?

  Sapins 17:42 28 May 2003

I read somewhere that you can make telephone calls from a computer, as I now have 120hrs. a month to use up (only 25€!)I would like to be able to do this. Anyone know how?

Have a look at:

which used to be known as BuddyPhone.

BuddyPhone could be linked with ICQ but I don't know about the latest version.

A search in google will no doubt bring up others such as, I think, one called Net2Phone.

Simple answer is Yes, If you have software such as SuperVoice

GANDALF <|:-)> , Stuartli, and Amber-Shortie thanks for your quick replies, I'm having a look at your link Stuartli and I have also found Net2phone on Google ( I thought I would get better advice from you guy's first!)Thanks again, if I am successful I will post another thread to give details.

Forgot to mention, it seems you can use Net2phone from virtually anywhere to anywhere now.

Blimey, didn't see you there woodchip, thanks for your imput. Not a "Chippy" are you?

To your Question "I was" now past retirement, Net2Phone is a pay so much a month I think you will find for any whare in the world

Snap woodchip. Iv'e checked Net2phone and it seems you have to "charge" your account but calls are per minute. I'm waiting for confirmation of my 120hrs a month deal then I will probably give it a try.

  woodchip 23:15 28 May 2003

Yes I use it

woodchip-do you have a link to Bitware?

  Sapins 18:42 29 May 2003

Don't mention it otubby1, I didn't even realise I had been hijacked! Can I claim asylum now or will I just be put in one? Thanks to all of you for your input, much appreciated.
