Free international calls with voip

voip(Updated again, see end of article.)
Voice over IP (voip), also called internet telephony is becoming a stronger and stronger competition to the traditional Telco companies.

Skype has become very popular because it let's people make free calls between computers. With additional services one can even call land lines all across the globe for a fraction of traditional Telco costs. One annoying issue with Skype is that it is using a proprietary format, ignoring the established SIP protocol.

Voipbuster is a similar application provided by the Swiss Telco Finarea SA. The company has multiple cheap telephony services operating in UK and Europe and some other names they go by in the UK are 1899.com and call18866.co.uk.

Voipbuster is however their first computer client. It has a minimal amount of features but it let's you make calls and store contacts.

Currently the software is in beta status and during this period Voipbuster offers you free calls to landlines in over 20 countries.

See the official list with rates to see the currently free countries.

To avoid a 1 minute cut-off limit you have to credit your account with the symbolic sum of €1 (70p, $1.20) €5 €10. This is to prevent abuse of the service and since you can pay with Paypal it is just a minor nuisance.

    Unfortunately Italy is not still in the list of countries in which voipbuster offers free calls :-(

    Wow. Thanks for the info!

    It seems they raised their symbolic sum today from EUR 1 to EUR 5.

    Rgds, Fred

    David says:

    That is a bit annoying.

    Still excellent value but it is an indication of where VoipBuster may be going: silently changing terms of conditions and getting as much money as possible from their users.

    Funny, just yesterday I helped a friend to install VoipBuster and it was still 1 Euro.

    Although the new cost is supposedly 5 Euro, paying only 1 Euro through Paypal will still give you unlimited calls. I did it, and it works great!

    Dear Voip buster,
    Recently I made a call to Hungary and the system did charge me. Please explain why could that happen. Hungary is on the free call list.

    Thank you

    David says:

    The list of free countries seems to be changing over time. Always check the official list or hang up if you don't see the lovely "This call is FREE" message.

    The Voipbuster clone VoipCheap offers free calls to Hungary at the moment (http://www.voipcheap.co.uk).

    Excellent tip...
    How long will regular telephone nw survive? The only advantage w regular nets is when there is a powercut (and this does not affect the phone nets). Standard phone service companies have no future unless the invest 100% in voip. Anyone wants to challenge that statement...?

    Keep up the good work David!

    Voipbuster from Finarea is a FRAUD. Takes your money [ok, 5 euros is not much] and does not provide a service. Since paying 8 days ago still unable to use the facility. No response to calls, faxes or emails to the company. Now contacted fraud office in Lugano, see what happens

    David says:

    That is a shame to hear. Voipbuster has been providing decent "free" service since April this year.

    I think more that it is a problem with an overloaded network. The voice quality has been poor during the last week.

    The fact that they are not responding is inexcusable if you have paid money for the service. I hope that you will be able to use the service in short while after some technical problems have been dealt with.

    voipbuster is great, i had no problems, and it is really free, and tells you that on each call you attempt to make (before it connects you to the party) it states the rate "zero cpm" or whatever the rate! its just great!

  10. Mansoor Says:

    [snip]

    How the number is dailed?
    In voipbuster it is "+countrycode city code number"

    any idea how it is done with X-pro if the above steps are done to configure X-pro for voipbuster.

    Thanks

    David says:

    Please use the 00 notation in X-pro, the + did not work well for me. Also be patient, only 1 out of 10 calls gets through X-pro. For the rest you'll get "cannot be found" or "forbidden" errors.

    Hello, i have a problem to sign as a new user at voipbuster i just download it last night and i can't get through. it says to me (sorry, we could not register you). please let me know how can i get through. please reply to me as soon as possible. i try all the methods and just doesn't work whas is the problem.
    Thanks a lot, David.

    David says:

    It's most likely a temporary problem. Try again in one day.

    Is it free really? Is it worth it to pay 5 Euro?

    David says:

    Yes it is still free but the free countries keep changing so check out the latest rates.

    The quality is excellent most of the times. A few times the quality was poor.

    There is a rumour that 1Euro is still enough to get unlimited calls. Try first with 1 Euro and let us know!

  13. Wolfman Says:

    no gravatar

    I'd be very interested in knowing if the 1euro trick still works, If it does(and doesnt get you thrown out) It'd be well worth it, Im such a tightass that the $6(USD/5Euro) I may not be willing to let it go so easily. What would be the real kicker for me is if I could find a way to rig up Stanaphone incoming, and VoIPBuster outgoing, on a Sipura-1001!

    David says:

    VoipBuster provides a SIP gateway (unlike some other proprietary voip solutions). This should make it compatible with all other SIP based applications.

    Search on google for that exact phrase, I am sure someone else has done it already.

    Regarding the 1Euro, try it out and report back to us ;-)

  14. Wolfman Says:

    no gravatar

    Well, their FAQ (which by the way isn't accessible unless you know the file name, and type it in "/en/faq.html") said that SIP was possible, but not supported by Customer Service, so it's out there, I'll just google it later.

    When I went to buy credit there were only 2 options 5Euro, or 10Euro, I went with 5. Sure I could have changed the amount in PayPal, but I didn't for two reasons...

    1.) I own a business and 99% of payments that come in, come through PayPal, and I've felt the pain of international fees before, There would be no money left after all the fees taken from just one Euro.

    2.) There was just an update to the software, and I figure the bump up from 1 to 5 Euros was included in the update.

    If I can get SIP working, it will be WELL worth the $6-USD!

    They claim that soon those with full access will be getting their own incoming number, if in fact that's true... It will be worth a whole lot more than the 5euro deposit.

    Hi Guys,

    I want to know if calls to India are free? If anybody knows a cheaper way to call India please email me at mukti_tangri aatt yahoo.com

    David, I'm very curious if you got Voipbuster working on your Pocket Pc. If you did, please share your settings with us.

    Thanks, Ruud

    David says:

    I'd like to try it out but I have only a PPC 2002 and all (free) SIP clients seem to be for PPC 2003. SJPHone is one such.

    Does it matter which version/build of X-Pro is used e.g. build 1101 versus 1105?

    David says:

    I am using 'X-PRO release 1105x build stamp 18009'. While I am not aware of any bugs in 1101, it's always best to use the latest version.

    Especially since it is a free upgrade from 1101 to 1105.

  18. Martin Says:

    no gravatar

    How do you upgrade X-Pro to 1105 ?
    The Ctrl G command doesn't do anyting and X-Ten seem to have stopped support for Lite and Pro
    (except for X-Pro for Pocket PC)
    Any idea where the upgrade website / download may be ?

    Hi, when will I get a number so other can call me?
    I live in Denmark, will I be able to travel to another country and call Denmark for free?

    David says:

    Voipbuster currently does NOT offer a service where you get a regular number that people can call (Skype does, it is called SkypeIn).

    Currently Denmark is on the free countries list which means you can call Denmark land lines for free from any country in the world (as long as you have Internet access).

    India to UK

    David says:

    voipcheap.co.uk has free calls to UK landlines. This means you can call for free from India to UK.

  22. Aida Says:

    Hi David,

    1. I normally do not use my credit card for long distance payments. So please advice how I can make bank payment for the 5 Euros required for your service.

    2. How much does it cost to call land line telephones in those countries indicated as free (Denmark, USA etc.) from countries like Ethiopia and Kenya?

    3. Is tele-conference possible between say Denmark, Ethiopia and Kenya?

    Early response will be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    David says:

    Hello Aida,

    first of all VoipBuster is not my service. It is a service from the Swiss Telco Finarea SA and I am just another user.

    I would recommend you to use PayPal instead of using your credit card as I trust PayPal more than I trust Finarea.

    2. Free destinations are FREE from anywhere in the world as soon as you are connected to the Internet.

    3. Ethiopia and Kenya are currently not free destinations so if you set up a conference call you will be charged for these destinations. Also remember that a conference call is only possible with the third party tool X-pro (or any other SIP client you may find).

    What you can do, is to set up a free conference between 2 (or more) parties in Denmark and your location anywhere in the world.

    Dear David,

    I tried VOIP Buster on an ISDN line and it worked fine! The connection was not only clear but also fast with minor lag.

    However, when i attempted to use it on an ADSL 384/128 line they could hear me fine on a land line in Greece but i had a really slow feedback. I heard their response 30 secs later. I tried cutting all other programs off like P2P dowloaders and even switched off my firewall but still.

    I am relatively inexperienced when it comes to networking (cause i tried it on a computer which is in my home network) but has that got anything to do with the lag? Please help! Thanks.

  24. riza Says:

    Is the connection really good? Is the payment of 10 euro dollar for a one year subscription? Can I try first for few months for lesser than 10 euro? If i will travel in Asia can i still use voip buster to call US for free? If we have some technical problem after signing in are they prompt in answering our problems?

    Thank you so much for answering my questions. I really do appreciate it especially that there is no number to call for our inquiry.

    David says:

    The connection is excellent, people keep telling me it sounds better than a call from their neighbour. The quality is much better than I get from our home phone using cheap calling cards. Make sure to select "High speed internet" as your connection.

    The fee has yet again gone up from 5 to 10 Euro. Since Voipbuster has added a "free" voip-in number I think it is justified. The fee is used as credit that you can call for until you use it up. It is NOT an annual fee.

    You can try for free with the 1 minute cut of. Try calling a few destinations to get an idea of the quality.

    As always with VOIP, it is geography independent. Same rates from anywhere in the world once connected to that Interweb thingie.

    I have not used their email only support but I have heard that they are very slow in responses. You should also be able to get help from other voipbuster users like me ;-)

    VOIPBUSTER IS BUSTED FOR FRAUD!!!!!!

    NO MORE FREE CALLS TO USA. PEOPLE WHO GOT RIPPED OFF HAVE FILED CLAIMS...

    look at this link...
    http://www.voip-info.org/wiki/index.php?page=Finarea%20SA

    David says:

    This is common Voipbuster strategy: to shuffle around the free destinations. I suspect their TOS allows them to do this.

    What exactly do you base your fraud accusations on?

    Thank you for the informative link!

    Hi David,

    I stay in Singapore and i would like to make free calls to only one Indian mobile.

    Can you suggest me if there is any VOIP provider who is offering such facility.

    I have broadband at my place(1500 mbps). I am also willing to pay a fixed monthly rental for the same if required.

    Kindly let me know please.

    Regards

    Nirmal

    David says:

    No VOIP provider offers free calls to mobiles and I doubt any will in the near future.

    Hi David
    Do you know any VOIP provider that offers free land line calls
    to US and Canada
    Thanks
    value

    David says:

    SipDiscount (sipdiscount.com) is currently free to USA and Canada. It is run by the same company as VoipBuster.

    You will need a SIP client to use the service.

    Hi David,

    I recently registered with voipbuster and put 5 euros in my account. I still cant use it from the United Arab Emirates. My friends however can use my account if they log on from the USA with no problems. What is the solution?

    Thanks!

    David says:

    "It is illegal to use voice over IP [voip] in the UAE and it is left to the regulatory authorities to allow or disallow such things..." - Ahmed Bin Ali, public relations manager at Etisalat, told ITP Business.

    "Coincidentally, the Skype [voip] block comes as Etisalat itself prepares to launch its own VoIP service later this year..."

    Try to find an unregulated connection. Also known as open free zones.

    I use voipcheap beta provided by the Finarea SA company it works great considering its a beta version no probs it does every thing it says the audio is nice and clear (better than my normal land line) I would recommend paying by paypal just to be safe as i don't like giving credit info over the net. It is a big saving on BT phoning to the US and new zealand and UK long distance is free with several other free destinations I try to give BT as little trade as possible after the problems I have had with them but that is another story.

    VoipBuster is a FRAUD!

    Finarea SA seems to be run by crooks and should be sued with a class action suit!

    They change their fine print every now and then without even mentioning it! And how can a credit expire???

    So no good news of a Swiss company again! Switzerland seems to develop to a nest of gangsters and crooks, very nice! I'm ashamed of being a Swiss citizen myself. Help us eliminate those people!!! Let's find legal help against them

    Hi You all folks who want to make free calls to India. There is a trick. Open an account where you live with the Voip provider, who gives free calls to your place and use this account from India. I hope BSNL, Reliance and tata Indicom have good price range for Broadband... So enjoy free calling from India to yourself...

    David says:

    I don't quite understand those directions but maybe other surfers will...

    VOIP Buster cheats its customers! VOIP Buster is a service from: Betamax GmbH & Co KG, based in Germany. It looks like they bought it from Finarea SA. The company operates several duplicate services on the web, each under a different name. Voipbuster, voip cheap, voipstunt , internetcalls , spar voip and voipdiscount are just some of the names these guys use.

    Their gimmick is to tease people with free, unlimited calls to landlines in certain countries for a minimum deposit towards placing calls that lasts 4 months if you don't use it up by placing calls outside of the promotion. Their main web page states very clearly that calls places to landlines in their list of countries would be FREE & UNLIMITED. A very tempting offer! The current minimum cost to place those calls is 10 euros ($12 dollars).

    Well I took the offer and opened an account 2 weeks ago. At first it seemed to work fine. I cannot complain about the voice quality. When I placed a call to a land line in one of the countries from their list of free and unlimited calls, it appeared as a free call in their software.

    This morning, I tried to make that same call. Instead of it saying free, it said I had exceeding the limit of their fair use policy. And the program began to charge me per minute. That country is still listed as part of the free and unlimited promotion on their main web page.

    It turns out this has happened to a great many customers. In their forum, numerous people are complaining about the same thing happening to them. But the company ignores the complaints. In fact, the moderators make fun of the people who complain about the problem. They say things like, "Did you really expect to get something for free?" Or, "You shouldn't complain. Even at the rate they are charging you, it's still a good price..." There were some who pointed people to the FAQ's etc. But the FAQ's do not state what the calling limit is for fair use. They leave it as a mystery to be found out after you have made a non-refundable payment and they cut you off.

    In other words, they acknowledge the fraud and belittle the customers who don't accept it. So, now I have given them my full payment in advance and in good faith. And they stopped fulfilling their end of the contract after 2 weeks. The service is now useless to me!

    I have used Skype with success. But now that Yahoo Voice is available, I will move my business to them. They have very good rates and are a name you can trust to fulfill their end of a contract!

    the tip u listed above isn't very clear if u could please explain in detail i`d be very grateful

    and david you are doing a great job
    keep it up
    thanks

    David says:

    I did not say specifically that you can call India for free. You are limited to the countries that are free destinations at the moment.

    You may have noticed that the VOIP providers keep changing the free destinations frequently :-(

    I used Voip Buster for some months and it functioned well. Since some days I can’t do any call, saying: you are not allowed to make this call, and I have enough credit in my account. What is worst you can’t even contact them. In some email addresses they don’t reply at all. In the forum of users I see that many people have the same problem. Also I can’ register in any of their woip services, like voipcheap, or voipdiscount.
    Can somebody help me to understand what is going on

    Hi, can anybody advise me if it is any worth to put the 10 euros any voip buster account, or should I go on with skype ? how long is the credit in my account available if I will call only the 'free' countries ? Can R7 explain how often did he use the service. I only need to make about 5-10 mins per day for personal use to the free countries, so should I put the money on Voip buster ?
    Thanks

  44. Victor Says:

    HI ,

    Using voip phones you can make calls for free of cost. Using a computer or by using voip adapters with free service providers like IPvaani. Using this service you can make free calls to other IPvaani members. If you want to make calls even to cell phones u have to go with other providers like vonage , packet8 etc..but u needs to pay for those calls.

    Hi all, I am a regular user of Voipbuster for last two months and did not have a single breakdown from service. I am using about 60 minutes a day to make free calls and Voipbuster rocks. So do not worry paying them. And those who want to make free calls to India..keep watching..I will post details how you can..Thanks and Regards.. David is really doing a great job.

    DO NOT BUY 10 EUR VOIPSTUNT CREDIT!!!
    Possibly Voipstunt is a fraud!

    I and many other people experienced that "free" calls worked fine only for few days after purchasing 10€ credit, after that the message "Sorry, you are not allowed to make this call" appears every time you want a make any call!

    To call INDIA Free

    Nothing comes free
    Finarea or voip- buster -cheap-stunt all are same
    They are like fraud .. cut your credit any time
    and even stop the account for few days

    To call INDIA free
    Register any Sip service(pc2pc) free
    and then use Internet (be online same time to each other) and dial the number (sip number or user)
    and Talk for free(Internet cost apply)

  48. Gangaram Says:

    Hi All, FuelVoip got it right saying nothing comes for free, but sometime you get. Those all using Voipbuster, now you can make calls without any internet charges, as they have web activated calls so you do not even have to pay your internet charges. One more service recently launched by Finarea, It is called Voipcheap and have added more free countries.
    So enjoy calling the world.

  49. orno Says:

    dunno why everyone seems to be complaining but i used voipbuster first and have now moved on to voipstunt... i absolutely love the service and although they have put on restrictions on the amount of free calls (their website sez "Max 300 minutes per week of free calls") its enough for me...even if i do manage to exceed that limit, call costs are only 1c a min which is nothing compared to the 12-15cents i would pay otherwise.
    and yes, stop complaining about the validity: recharges are valid for 120 days. it clearly says so on the website, forum and in the latest version of the client (it sez how long the credit is gonna be valid for).
    to top it all off, I've got a free voip-in number as well.

    overall highly satisfied

    Using IPvaani you can make free India calls from phone to phone. Otherwise use google talk using ur computer. If you are looking for phone to phone calling service..this is the best option...

    hi. since I added 10 euro to my voip account I can't get connected. I see the answer :- Call ended (sorry you are not allowed to make this call). I wrote 3 e-mails to the voipbuster customer service, but got no answer, although they reduce every day my "day account" that is left to use the credit. ( and as you all know they don't gave back your money)
    can some help me solve the problem.

    I bought credit from Voipbuster and today I have still 6.94 Euro credit, but VoipBuster tells me: Sorry, you are not allowed to make this call. I tried to send message to VoipBuster, but instead of answer they want to sen me their leaflets. There is nobody to talk with, so I suggest: DO NOT BUY ANY CREDIT FROM VOIPBUSTER!!! They probably live from our money and you cannot complain! Use Skype - this is very sereious company without any danger as from VoipBuster!

    First I've payed 10 euros to Voipbuster and was satisfied with service, but after I've payed 10 euros to voipcheap.com and another 10 euros to internetcalls.com I can't talk with them,getting "You are not allowed to make this call" - General Error 8. But no explanation what does this error mean. And no answer from Betamax. The phone number shown on their websites is invalid. After searchig the web found info about Finarea with real phone numbers.

    I don't know the story behind it, but it's really work well (I am using O2). The number i am using for last 3 years is from JUST DIAL, 08444313196 (weekend) and 08709964752 (Mon to Fri)

    David says:

    I prefer the 0207/0208 access numbers from 18866.com because those numbers are included in my calling plan.

    Anyone know when Betamax will start giving VOIP-in numbers again with new accounts. I changed from SIP Discount (where I had a VOIP-in number) to VOIP Discount but I have not been allocated a number. I read somewhere that they had some problems with VOIP numbers in Austria, but is this permanent, or just a blip. Needless to say that I've had no response from Betamax to my direct question.

    FRAUD! DO NOT BUY 10 EUR from VoIPBuster & WebCallDirect

    I and many other people experienced that "free" calls worked fine only while testing. After purchasing €10 credit, cannot make the same calls I made for testing the system. Error message "Sorry, you are not allowed to make this call" appears every time you want a make any call!

    HI! I was just looking for lower rate that I have with voipstunt and freecall and I just have to say that people really do not have always good standing or understanding or whatever.

    I am using these programs for last 10 months and never had problems. Talking with whole Europe and no problems : Yes, I also paid money 10 Euro for using it but ,..... , I do not see some of the points here.

    It is free , maybe some of the country regulations are different, maybe your computer has protective software that you have to disable while calling, maybe your lines are too overworked and in the end yes, you have to pay to go even to the bathroom in Europe!

    Get used to it and talk to friends around the globe about that FOR FREE!

    There are still sites that give free international calls from UK mobiles. For example, you can get free international calls to the USA from your mobile by dialling a gateway number such the ones on www.actiontelecom.co.uk.

    I think you can get free international calls to Italy but not to Italy mobiles. I prefer to do my international calls from my mobile when I'm out and about. Cheers. Tom

    David says:

    Interesting service you pointed out, shame it only works with O2.

    I use call18866 for my international calls from a mobile. They have a local access number that I can use my inclusive minutes for and their call charges are reasonable.

    I have been using VoIP for a year, like is stated in the article Mexico was a free destination but it no longer available. Anyway is a very competitive company because its cheaper than doing calls with mexican telecom. They rised the price to mobiles, but anyway if I was paying $4.60 MXP by minute for local mobile calls and more than $6.00 for mobiles from other regions, now I'm paying more or less $2.00 MXP.
    Since I started with VoIPBuster I have been always been looking for cheaper rates, but nothing. I someone knows of another one, please email me at rj92.jpc@.....com

    If you are on a mobile monthly contract then there is a great possibility that you can make FREE international calls from your mobile

    When you hear, someone say FREE, you would understand as per the dictionary meanings, that something that you can have without giving anything in return, whether that is material or money. Moreover, that is how I would expect it to be, now a day FREE is available but it has been hidden within the lines.

    My girlfriend was always calling her parents back home, and for reasons that I did understand when I wanted to. However, when the phone bills use to come at the end of the month, I wished to get the phone from her and ditch it.

    I had always thought if there was a way to keep my girlfriend happy as well myself, and if there was, a way to make calls FREE. Was that possible! First, I tried the internet where I could use online chats and speak to the person on the other side, but then the person on the other side had to be online as well and more over had to have a computer and a good bandwidth. Sorry, No Good

    WELL finally, I cracked it; I came across www.reallyjustdial.co.uk where I could call aboard FREE if I had a mobile contract. FREE means FREE. Therefore, that is what I did and now I am happy and so is my girlfriend

    Good luck

    David says:

    There is nothing free about their service. You have to pay money to get calling credits. At least their prices are competitive.

    I am a Voip Reseller, and now one of the customers has also got this problem: Unknown error (33)

    There has been an unknown error. (33). The customer complained to us, but I do not know what causes the problem either. I have also tried to contact Voipcheap, but no reply at all. We refunded 50% of what he paid, but I do not think that we should be responsible. The account has been uploaded, but after some days he could not use his voipcheap anymore. I see that there have been some others with the same problem, but I have not seen any helpfull replies. Has anybody succeeded yet in solving this kind of problem?

    I wish myself to be able to help, but unfortunately being a Voip reseller does not mean we have better access to any help. I have though been a voip reseller for 6 months, but this is the first time I heard of a problem (Voipcheap), besides that everybody seems happy.
    Hope anybody has a solution !!!

Action telecom are trying to pressure the networks to bring the calls back through their blog though.

    Guys,

    If anybody want to use betamax products, pay only with PAYPAL. So if something goes wrong, while we open a dispute, the betamax guys suddenly refund the amount to us.

    Otherwise, they don't want to listen to us.

    Latestly they've started another clone ... 12voip.com and it costs 0.04 cents US to India. Beware, they've already raised the rates to India in justvoip.com

    tried this option but then it started showing cryptographic error.

    "DAVID" kindly find a solution to this problem as it is becoming frequent and people cannot find a solution to this problem anywhere everything about voip they can find out on the net. so kindly do something about it as it would be easy for a tech. person like u.

    YABT = Yet Another Betamax Theft

    I used for 1 month and a half my first 10 euros. Then I charged my account again with another 10 euros. I used 1 day more the service lowratevoip and after that I got "Call ended(Sorry, you are not allowed to make this call)" - General Error (8) (CODE:8).

    No way to get answers from Betamax. No way to find a solution to this problem on Internet.

    To many complains about the same type of issues. Don't be naive and think that all those error codes (33, 8 and other similar codes) *mean* something different. They don't. Its a different way of stealing money. As they duplicate their services, they also duplicate this errors just to mislead people.

    BETAMAX ARE THIEVES!!!!!!! THIS COMPANY IS FRAUDULENT!!!!!! DON'T BUY THEIR SERVICES ANYLONGER!!!!

    Their strategy seems to be: pick up randomly some accounts and block them right after they are buy credit. There is no way for the users to get back their money.

    Hi everybody,
    I'm having the same problem with Betamax (LowRateVoIP): Error 33 - "Call ended due to an unknown error". I tried to contact Betamax over e-mail and Fax but no single reply up to today. That sucks especially because I need to make urgent calls and I don't understand why they are not available for their customers. If so many people are facing the same problem with their VoIP than they should at least write some instructions on their homepage. I really don't understand this.

    Hi, I have had quite a few problems with the several Voips: Cheap, buster, stunt, etc. First, you never get to use the 300 minutes free a week. After not even 200 they start to charge you. Writing to them it is no use because they never, ever answer! And "free" is not even that free, nowadays it costs you 12.50€ (the price went up a little while ago, from 11.90€ to 12.50€)for 120 days. Then the problem of the calls that are ended for no apparent reason. Another problem is that when I use the speakerphones the other person can hardly hear me, therefore I have to use the direct calls which cost 5 cents to make the connection. If one could talk to them the problems could be solved, but that is not at all possible! Too bad that these companies go on existing without giving people any service at all! I still use them because in the end they are cheap but I have to put up with all this!

    BETAMAX ARE THIEVES.

    Stay away from their latest sibling 12voip.com

    I lost 7 Euros & my friend lost 15 Euros from their another sibling 12voip.com.
    We are getting the same old infamous general error code 33.
    I have informed through their contact us page more than 5 times in last two months, but no reply from these BETAMAX VOIP THIEVES.

    I have opened a dispute in paypal but the seller (12voip.com betamax) didn't reply to my dispute.

    Paypal is saying that they don't have any refund policy for fradulant services bought through them.
    They will return money only for the undelivered products which are solid in size & shape.

    This Paypal refund policy gives them freedom to cheat more peoples.

    David says:

    Did you use a credit card to pay PayPal? If yes then issue a charge back and hope for the best (even though PayPal will fight it and may terminate your PayPal account).

    PayPal is another company that doesn't care about it's customers so you had really bad luck dealing with two such companies at once!

    Thanks guys for the info. I have the same problem of error code 33, whatever that is. I wrote to them as well (twice) but have had no reply. Naively, I thought it was a problem with my internet connection or my computer. Jeez, I have been changing my computer settings hoping to solve the problem. Now that I know the truth about BEXTAMAX, I will never use their services, even if its the cheapest. I have 8 Euros stuck in my account. Why cant people have some decency? PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD LIKE WILD FIRE. IF THEY CANT SHOW RESPONSIBILITY TO THEIR CUSTOMERS, LETS SPREAD A BOYCOTT OF BEXTAMAX AND ITS SERVICES.

    regarding to error code 8 "sorry, you are not allowed to make this call" - it may be country or provider sensitive. I face this problem with VoipWise in Czech Republic, but in Poland all runs fine. Try to connect from another country or through another internet provider. Good luck. H.

    The other party ended the call due to an unknown error". This error is shown to all those, who have not paid VAT tax while purchasing credit. People who have paid tax, it is working fine.

    I would say something to KHAN: how can you think that only for users that didn't pay the vat, the voip"..." products does not function?? At the purchase it isn't possible to not pay the vat!!! What do you mean with your exclamation??

    Many have the same problem with "General error code 33". Without knowing this problem I registered in the Justvoip, it works only one day.
    The same problem of error 33 always appear and everything is blocked. I can no longer use it, I still have 8 Euro in the account. I now truly believe that this company is a real THIEF...go to hell.
    Never use it again, its dirty CHEATING business.

    Same problem Unknown Error (33), does any body havea solution for this.pls let me know. "other party ended the call due to unknown error"

    Guys
    the above cmd is common for most of the guys.
    check the country what u have select during reg in 12voip or voipcheap or bust etc etc.

    observered selecting india will block us, select the country from where u r staying and need to pay extra vat if they charge, then it will work very fine. don't bother for 20% of vat or whatever it is. Else u have to loss more money like me/us(i should top losser of 30 euro by selecting india but i stay in Irelan).

    Good Luck. Enjoy talking in 12voip.

    On 12VOIP I bought 10Euros of credit only to find they no longer allow it to be used for calling Turkey plus I cant use the credit to make paid calls either! I only wanted the service to call Turkey! So I ask them to transfer credit so I can use it for paid calls but no reply. So I call my credit card and ask them to get my money back. A week later I get "other party ended the call due to error (code 33)" on all calls! I also bought credit on Voipraider and voipcheap with same credit card and they stopped all those accounts also. They are very stupid people if they think they can make a business work with this kind of retarded attitude. I will work tirelessly to fxxx these people up after wasting my time and money.

    Guys! Everybody who has error 33 ! I am in Sweden now and our official reseller is making the list of usernames and amounts of money that are blocked. He need to find as much information as possible to send an official letter to Betamax. If you have been cheated by that company you can contact him by the following e-mail:[email protected]
    mentioning the client type you used and the amount of money they blocked! Regards, Tigran

    OK, here's my case with our favourite company BETAMAX.
    I charge 2 accounts on 12voip - for me and for my father . I have no problem to call anywhere .. but my father who in the moment is abroad (he's in Sri Lanka, but I'm in Bulgaria) gets the popular 'You are not allowed .. blabla'. The I entered his account from here and guess what? There were no problems. Everything was perfect!
    And that's why I think it's relative where is your PC location (maybe BETASHIT are making some kind of IP filtering..)
