Make SIP Calls (mobile to phone ) via Google Talk Using Freecall or Intervoip account
Yeah , its sound too good to be true. The best thing, I like about Google talk is that it can connect through my office network where all other IM services are blocked. Moreover, I can make PC to PC calls too. However, you can very easily extend this functionality to make PC to phone calls via Google Talk using your Intervoip or FreeCall account. Following is the procedure to do it :
Step1 : Register for Gtalk2Voip account. Click here to know more about it and how to do it. It will just take seconds for you to register.
Step2 : Click on the SERVICE BOT in your GoogleTalk and send “MYPAGE”. A link will be displayed and you can click it to reach your personalized page.
Step3 : Choose Define your own SIP providers,
Select “ADD” your SIP accounts as in the following:
Pasword – password for your existing SIP account;
Confirm password – repeat your password;
Host – SIP server/proxy domain name.
In case of INTERVOIP its sip.intervoip.com and incase of FREECALLS its sip.voiparound.com
Port – Leave it as it is (5060), else check your provider for details.
Techprefix – Add ‘+’ or ’00′ (without the quotes). This is used to skip prefixing ‘+’ or ’00′ before an international number while making a call.
Step4 : Press Save to save the changes.
Step5 : Go back to your Home on personal account page and choose Define your dialing plan.
Step6 : Press Add to add new dialing entry
Fill-in the form, including:
Order – order number, used to select this dialing entry when callling, values are: [1 – 1000]. 1 means “choose me first”.
Prefix – leave blank.
Select Provider which will be used to route calls to this destination. Your user-defined SIP accounts will be in the very top of the list. If some of your SIP accounts not present, that means they are temporary off (see Enable option for SIP accounts above).
Set Enable checkbox to enable this entry. This option can be used to temporary disable the dialing entry.
Step7 : Press Save to save the changes
Step8 : Log out of Google Talk and Log in again.
Step9 :Click on the SERVICE bot again and type:
Call . Please note the number should be in international format without ‘+’ or ’00′ prefix. For Ex: To call to UAE mobile number use CALL 97150XXXXXXX , where XXXXXXX denote the number.
Step10 : Accept the incoming call from service bot and wait for it to connect you to the number.
Thats all, now you can use GoogleTalk to make PC to Phone VOIP calls using your Intervoip or FreeCalls Account .
Please note : You can type COST to check the rate via Gtalk2voip. Most of the times, you will be able to get good deal than your existing PC to Phone Voip Provider.
