Jajah – Connects your Calls Online

Another web-app did the job for me today. I’m staying at a friends house, I have an internet connection, but I don’t want to rack up their phone-bill to call Robyn in Canada.
So what do you do?
Jajah is a simple concept, put your phone number in, put your friends number in. It dials your number, you get a “please hold while Jajah connects you” message, then the phone starts ringing.
On sign up you receive US$3 credit, so you can see if this application is for you or not.  The rates are pretty good, though you might find that phone cards are cheaper, (but you have the connection cost per call in Australia to worry about too).
The website can also store your phone numbers in an address book for convenience. It’s pretty handy because you don’t need headsets or a broadband connection to get this thing working, it uses your phone line once the call is placed. In this way it is better than Skype or other regular VOIP applications.
For regular users, calls between jajah users are free too within a fair use policy.
