Calling home from an international trip can get expensive. But after a few taps on the iPhone, you can call home for free. All you need to dial internationally for free is a wifi connection and the Magic Jack application for the iPhone.
Free International Phone Calls
The Magic Jack application is free to download. Following a few simple steps will have you dialing internationally for free in no time.
- Open the Magic Jack application
- Dial a number or select one of your contacts from your iPhone
- Enjoy free international calling
In my experience the call you place will show up as a call from California to the person you are calling. This is compatible with MagicJack accounts. But you don’t need an existing account to use the application. Once the application is downloaded, you can get a free account and phone number from Magic Jack.
Mobile phone carriers charge an arm and a leg for international phone calls. If you download an application and find a wifi network you can call internationally for free in no time at all.
Do you use Magic Jack or another application to dial internationally for free?
Another great free trick is to sign up for travel related credit cards to get the sign up bonus. For example, there are a number of flexible program credit cards that are offering big signup bonuses right now. If you signup for the credit cards, you can take the signup bonus points and use them for free travel to places all over the world.
