I'd like to know if there are any free Voice Over IP (VoIP) services left whatsoever. even if they're limited to USA-to-USA long distance calling.
I got broadband for the first time in early 2002, in Feb or March (I had DirecTV DSL) and soon after, I discovered Net2Phone -- which at the time, was offering totally free USA-to-USA calling from the internet to any phone, for 5 minutes at a time. later that year, they changed it to 2 min at a time (which made it very limiting), and shortly after that, all free service from Net2Phone was gone.
I also learned of DialPad during that time, but by the time I learned of DialPad, they were not offering anything free.
In retrospect it seems that I discovered free VoIP / internet-to-telephone calling, at the tail end of its existance. I completely missed out on DialPad's totally free long distance calling (I even heard that it used to be free world-wide calling, was that true?)
I have not looked around very hard the last year or so for any free services that might have popped up. there probably are none, but just maybe ?
