Make international calls for free using Talkster


Launched on October last year, Talkster's Free World Dialing gives users the ability to make free international and long distance calls from their cell phones, landlines, computers or VoIP phones. No registration or credit card is ever required and callers won’t need any new software or downloads to use the new Talkster service, just their existing phone.

Print To use Talkster’s Free World Dialing service visit from your computer or from your mobile phone browser or send an SMS to +447624802492. On the form provided, enter your name and the phone number from which you will place the call, along with the name and phone number of the person you want to call. Talkster will assign you and your friend a free local Talkster number that you can use whenever you want to call each other. Call the Talkster number for your friend and when your friend answers, tell them to hang up and call their local Talkster number for you. You stay on the line while your friend dials back using their Talkster number. You will be connected once the call goes through and you can talk for free as much as you want! Talkster also supports conference calls with up to 5 users.

The Talkster number that the system assigns you and your friend is a regular landline number and the charges for this number will depend on the rates specified by your telephone company. So all international calls get transformed to local calls and you pay at local rates. Talkster does not charge you anything for using this service. But you will have to listen to a mandatory 10 sec advertisement at the beginning of each call, because this is how they cover their costs. Talkster is currently available in only 30 countries and unfortunately India is not yet covered.

Talkster can also be integrated with GoogleTalk or Skype to make free calls.

  1. I've been using a company called WQN for years now to call to both India and UAE. There are no taxes, fees, or equipment to set up. The quality is great and the rates are very competitive. They give FREE minutes to their customers all the time with special bonus offers. They also have a loyalty program that gives their customers up to 3000 FREE minutes every 6 months. I'm able to get lots of free minutes to call my destinations with great quality.
