Another VOIP access…

Filed under: Miscellaneous,Tech — ramsblog @ 6:36 am

Through Guy Kawasaki's blog I noticed a post with a link to a VOIP company (jajah [url: http://www.jajah.com%5D ) that offers phone calls between any phones across the world. Only thing is a call needs to be originated through the website – then pick up your phone – you will then have the call connected to the recipient. Once the call gets connected – boom, you may leave the computer and the internet network. I just tried an international call – calling my home in India – and the line was pretty good.

note: i just noticed it is only for calls initiated from the USA and not from other countries. I am not sure if I missed that aspect.

pros and cons in my view:
pros:

  • easy to establish call and take the phone away
  • no more dependency on computer/internet once it gets connected
  • provides the history of your calls (time, duraiton and amount)
  • voice quality is good compared to most other local phone cards

Cons:

  • need an internet connection and a computer to initiate the call
  • might not be helpful if you are on a dialup connection and have only one phone.
  • call rates might be cheaper and expensive compared to what you currently use for international calls

what do you think?

  1. Thank you very much for trying our service mentioning our company in your blog. One thing I would like to add: You can initiate calls in most countries of the world, not only in the US.

    All the best here from JAJAH

  4. I think Jajah needs to have a provision to end the call someway other than phone. Or, it may be a bug that I noticed few days ago. Here is what happened.

    I initiated a call thru’ jajah web site. It didn’t dial on my phone – I supppose it was because there was another call coming into my cell phone – although i didn’t pick up the other call, it got connected to the voice mail.
    Anyways, call was successful from Jajah’s point of view and dialed my destination phone number in India.
    Recipient picked up the call and they were responding to my voice mail.
    There was no other way for me to end the call.
    It took over a minute or two for recipient to keep the phone down.

    Obviously, my account was charged for this misrepresented call 🙂
