A few months back I was not aware about the term VoIP. On one night when I was taking my regular dinner, and surfing the television for some news, I found one program for VoIP. Then I did a bit of Google search and got a good idea about VoIP.
Yesterday one of my friends asked me if he can be able to make phone calls from internet and suddenly I told him about VoIP. During the discussion I came to know that there are many myths available about VoIP, so I thought to share my ideas with the readers of my blog.
Voice over Internet Protocol, commonly known as VoIP, is a process through which you can make phone calls to any landline number or mobile phone or another computer. General myth related to VoIP is that you can use this facility for free, but it’s not true. In fact let me give you an example of Skype, they allows the free calls to other Skype users only, and they charge you a few bucks for calling on any landline number or mobile phone.
Although with the help of VoIP services you can save huge amount as these services are much cheaper and cost effective compared to your normal mobile phone or landline phone.
Another common myth about VoIP is that you need a VoIP phone to use their services. Frankly there are several types of free adaptors available through the world of web, through which you can use any normal phone to act as a VoIP phone. There are many VoIP service providers which offers free of cost adaptors; only thing which they need is that you must have an account with them.
Commonly many people think that VoIP calls are cheaper than the normal system, as I mentioned the same in this blog too, but sometimes it’s not the case too. There are a few VoIP service providers who charge you for both inbound and outbound calls, which is not the case for normal mobile or landlines.
I was wondering how technology has enhanced it self during last few years. VoIP technology has also reached to a great height. Are you aware that these days VoIP technology is associated with BlackBerry phones, Android phones and iPhone etc? Believe me I am not kidding, yesterday only I came to know about BlackBerry VoIP, and iPhone VoIP.
Well, it’s a fact that these days computer has become the most reliable companion of our life, and with the help of VoIP we can remain a bit more away from our mobile phone or landline phone and become a bit closer to our personal computer.
To further increase my surprise I came to know that mobile to mobile VoIP is also available these days, which was not possible a few years back.
