Dialing home to the U.S. Or Canada from an international trip can be expensive. But if you have an iPhone and a wifi connection this post will show you how to make free phone calls back home to the U.S. Or Canada for free with no strings attached.
The magicJack iPhone application is free to download. Following a few simple steps will have you dialing internationally for free in no time.

Tips For Using magicJack
To receive calls on your free magicJack number, make sure you enable notifications for magicJack in your settings.
This will allow your friends to call your magicJack number.
Next, make sure magicJack has access to your contacts. This way, you’ll be able to tab your friends name and make calls just like you were using your mobile phone service provider.
Lastly, I’ve found that the hotel lobby or nearby has the best wifi to use with this, but I’ve also used it in my room. The key is to find a strong signal and then stay put for your phone call.
There are a few options to use that will allow you to make free international calls to the U.S., but I’ve found magicJack to be easy and free to use.
