Now you can make calls to US 1-800 numbers from anywhere in the world with this SIP phone ! Want to save some money to call a friend in US? Here is a trick: buy one of those long distance US calling cards with a 1-800 calling number…… you got the idea ! The calling cards are very cheap – they offer calls at 4 cents a minute rate. So go ahead and enjoy !
The phone interface was very cute, I tried calling the COMCAST (my ex-ISP) toll free number and it worked perfectly.
The fun part is Lindows is advertising that you can make free calls worldwide with this SIP phone, which is not true. You can only call other SIP or VOIP users world wide (there are hardware phones for SIP available !! If you have a broadband connection, have fun !!). Lindows 4.5 has the linux version of this phone bundled, which they are considering as a major selling point.. phew..
