Try the free open-source VOIP software Gizmo:
Free services included:
1) Call Answering service
2) Record calls
3) Check world map for location of caller
4) Easier conference call facility than Skype.

I am using 3 different packages and they all seem to work under different circumstances:
Dialpad - PC to Phone - only one to let south africans buy time on the CC
Phoneserve - Pc to Phone - I purchased $10 prepaid cards in shops (Saudi Arabia)
Google Talk - PC to PC - Cant wait for them to bring out "PC to phone" and "Phone to PC"
Damn ya gota love this forum :D ..... easier than google . :D tks

Maybe you could try to buy a USB Handset from Easy Talk and get Free Airtime from them to evaluate their VoIP Service. Cheers! :)

They offer free calls to some countries in europe and UK and USA. It's really cool and not a scam!
