Hello there,

Pwedeng magtanong if nakagamit na kayo ng VOIP (Voice over the Internet Protocol) na Yahoo BB phone to call Pinas? And how much it costs per minute? May bago kasi akong Yahoo BB line…alam kung libre from Yahoo BB to Yahoo BB and only cost 10 yen per 3 min if used domestically, pero pag ginamit sa pagtawag
sa Pinas, ano ba abg best way…gagamit pa rin ng prepaid card?

Your advice is most welcome.

Thanks,

… mura din pag yan ang ginamit mo pang overseas sa atin … halos lahat bumaba na dahil marami ng competiton pagdating sa tele marketing … ang kagandahan lang ng prepaid medyo na -le-lessen mo yung gamit mo ng tawag … pag direct ka kase sa ginagamit mong connection, minsan sige lang ng sige di natin minsan namamalayan na ang dami na nating na-consume na oras , pagdating ng bill nakakagulat … I still prefer prepaid card kahit meron akong direct connection (sa akin ha):slight_smile:

Hi! dito sa amin, BB Phone din ang gamit ko, sabi nga ng husband ko, 40yen daw per minute, mura sya kung di ka rin naman madalas tumawag, kasi ang mga prepaid card sinasabi nilang 45 minutes 1000yen, pero pag ginamit mo sya ng paunti unti, malaking minuto ang nababawas, kaya di mo rin alam kung nakakatipid ka nga, pero may bago rin sa NTT, 20yen lang ang per minute, daming lumalabas ngayong mura, sana next time libre na lang noh!:smiley:

Call rates:

To Phils 40 yen per minute
To US: 2.5 yen per minute

For calling Pinas in terms of price per quality, better pa rin Brastel from my experience at lumalabas na around 25 yen a minute lang ang Brastel for Pinas.

You can get the prepaid cards at less for average of 20 yen per minute pero sabi noong sinabi noong isa, kung putol-putol ang gamit mo, malki rin ang nababawas (in some cases, 3 minutes per cut off) so in the end:

(1) Kung telebabad ka?.. prepaid cards
(2) Kung hindi… Brastel
(3) Kung emergency and wala kang cards… Yahoo BB

Ako I am using DION IP phone with ADSL by KDDI, ang tawag sa Pinas cost only Y35 per minute, mas mura at convenient pa gamitin kesa card, na you have to scratch, dial the access number, input the PIN then dial the number.

Kaya lang, I hate to act dumb, but how does one call to the Philippines via VOIP…do we dial the area code ,etc…just like using the prepaid cards…? Anyway, has anyone tried using Skype for calling to the Phil?I heard that one can even use it for free?

Thanks,

All VOIP services are free if you’re calling PC-to-PC. PC to landline or mobile phone calls are not free. Rates vary from provider to provider. The cheapest rates I’ve encountered so far is SIPPhone’s (http://www.sipphone.com) but you will need a credit card or a paypal account to pay for credits. That goes the same for Skype (http://www.skype.com). The various IM clients like Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, Google Talk, etc. also have voice chat capabilities so if the person you often call has an internet connection, any of these will do.

I use SIPPhone (http://www.sipphone.com) to call landline or mobile phone numbers and iChat AV (http://www.apple.com/ichat) to videochat with the rest of my family abroad.

To use VOIP services aside from the ones provided by your ISP, you will need an external microphone or headset if you’re PC does not have an internal microphone. You can also use wireless bluetooth headsets if your computer has built-in bluetooth capability or you have a bluetooth dongle. Or you can buy a VOIP adapter so you can use your telephone for VOIP calls.

To videochat, you would of course need a webcam. Preferably one that connects to your PC via firewire (aka IEEE1394 or i.Link) or USB 2.0. Cheap USB webcams are too slow and have crappy image quality.

siguro yang pc mo ay walang internal micropone katulad nitong akin kaya kailangan natin yan.pag nagparegister ka naman sa skype ay di maka-cancel ang YM mo.kami,ang gamit namin sa webcam ay YM.tapos sa voice chat ay skype.dati kasi di maganda linya ng YM.

sa skype kahit 4 kayong nag-uusap ay ok lang.siguro meron din nyan sa YM.kaya ang mga kausap ko ay nasa pinas,nasa new york,nasa korea.kaya nakakatuwa siya.maganda na linya,libre pa d b?

makakabili ka ng headset sa mga local computer shops jan sa inyo.
