This idea has been tried before, several times, but we’re still willing to believe it may one day work. Freephone2phone is offering free long distance and international phone calls in return for you listening to a short (10 to 12 second) advert at the start of your conversation.
Just dial a local number, listen to the ad then dial your target number. You only get a 10 minute call for free, but that should be enough to say Happy Holidays to your overseas friends and family. US only, and you can also dial cell phones in seven specific countries. Interesting!
You can make an unlimited number of calls to any number during a day using Freephone2phone. However, our intention is not for you to make a full 10-minute call, hang up, then call back the same number and speak for another full 10 minutes over and over. For this reason, if you make, say, an 8-minute call (or more than 5 minutes) to a number, you can then make multiple, unlimited calls of 5 minutes in duration to that number for the rest of that day. You can still call make 10-minute calls to other numbers during that day.
