If you’ve heard of VoIP, or even Voice over IP, you’ll have some idea that it’s a way of making telephone cheap international calls or even free international calls over the internet. But if you’ve looked into it, you might find it a little confusing. So what exactly do you need to do to implement VoIP either at home or at work?

Most of us are looking for easy ways to cut costs and balance budgets, whether it’s at work or at home. One of the most painless ways to save money is to look at your telephone bills, especially if you call abroad. If you’re looking for cheap international calls, or even free international calls, you may have come across VoIP: new technology that enables you to make cheap phone calls over your existing broadband connection.

If you want to implement VoIP, the main issue to consider is how much flexibility you want. As a rule of thumb, the more flexibility you want, the more you pay.

Not much flexibility: PC-to-PC.
If you want free international calls, and you don’t mind a few limitations, consider a VoIP provider that offers free PC-to-PC international calls. To implement VoIP in this way, you and the person you’re calling must have the following:
- a computer or laptop each;
- a broadband connection each;
- a headset/ microphone/ speaker (these may be integral to your computer) each;
- individual accounts with compatible VoIP providers that allows PC-to-PC calls, such as Skype or MSN.
As well as these set-up limitations, there are also restrictions in the way you use the service:
- you both need to sitting at your computers in order to make or receive a PC-to-PC Voice over IP call; this usually means agreeing a time and date for the call;
- the calls must be PC-to-PC; that is, you can’t just pick up your phone and dial;
- if you use this to make any calls to any other landlines or mobiles, you’ll be charged by the minute;
- you’ll probably find that the sound quality isn’t as good as that of a regular landline or mobile phone.
Lots of flexibility: phone-to-phone.

If you love the sound of VoIP, but aren’t prepared to put up with the restrictions above, it’s worth considering a completely different, much more flexible way of implementing VoIP and making cheap international calls. Using VoIP to make phone-to-phone calls is, basically, just the same as using a normal phone.

First, it’s just you who needs to get set up with the following:
? a computer or laptop;
? a broadband connection;
? a regular handset;
? an account with a VoIP provider that allows this kind of calls;

In terms of how you use this phone-to-phone VoIP service, it’s more or less what you’ve always been used to.
? you can just pick up your normal handset and dial;
? you can dial any number, not just other VoIP phones;
? you get unlimited calls to all landlines and mobiles featured in your particular call plan;
? you don’t need a headset;
? you don’t need to be at your computer;
? your computer doesn’t even need to be switched on;
? the people you’re calling don’t need a computer, broadband or any kind of VoIP account;
? the call quality is so good that they won’t even realise you’re using a broadband phone.

Bespoke flexibility: phone-to-phone and PC to PC
You can, of course, combine these two ways of implementing VoIP and tailor-make a system that’s perfect for you. It depends on your own needs and calling habits.

Say for example that you’ve got a family member you talk to frequently in France, but most of your friends live in the States. In this case, it might make sense for both you and the person in France to take the time and trouble to set up a free PC-to-PC VoIP service, and agree a regular time and day for speaking to each other. Then you could also sign up to one of the phone-to-phone VoIP providers and choose a call plan that offers unlimited anytime calls from the UK to, for example, landlines and mobiles in the States and Canada, for a low, fixed monthly fee.

Once you’ve decided how much flexibility you want, the next step is to go ahead and sign up with an appropriate VoIP provider. However you decide to implement VoIP, you can be sure of one thing – you’ll save money, whichever system you use.

Like many early adopters of VoIP, back around 1995 I first started experimenting making internet calls using a headset plugged into my desktop computer and using a Windows program I can’t remember the name of. Anyway, dialing the keypad on the screen with my mouse and making the home phone ring was absolutely amazing. Of course, in 1995 doing pretty much anything other than reading websites on a computer was pretty incredible. Anyway, not much later I decided to sign up with a service that sent me their own branded ATA and hook it into my home cordless phone. WOW. Hearing that simulated dial tone emanate from that little white box sent shivers down my spine. I got multiple phone numbers in cities and countries around the world so people could call me as if they were local, and I never had to pay for call waiting, call forward an other similar services again. The only problem was that unless I was at home, all these great conveniences and cost-saving VoIP technologies ended at my front door.

Fast forward to 2010 and the technology crammed into a 3oz WP04 WiFi VoIP phone or any of the other VoIP and Dual-Mode phones available. There is no longer any reason to operate an ATA or any style of cordless phone with a built-in ATA. In fact, here’s 5 reasons to dump your ATA or cordless-style phone for a VoIP WiFi phone:

1. VoIP Ends When You Leave The Home or Office — With a VoIP WiFi phone your deep discounted inbound and outbound calling goes with you. Take a VoIP WiFi phone on the road with you and you’re in your VoIP Zone in any open WiFi hotspot like a hotel, office, library, park, hospital, coffee shop etc etc.

2. Pages and pages of VoIP & IP settings — Current VoIP WiFi phones have only a few setting to enter like account, password and VoIP server IP address. Codec settings, echo, etc are mostly automatic and self adjusting. You can be up and running in no time at all with nothing complicated to enter into the device.

3. Only 1 or 2 SIP Providers can be stored — VoIP WiFI phones have at least 4 SIP provider account settings so you can switch from one provider to another as you need them. Use one for inbound domestic, another for free inbound, and another for international calling. Of course you can simply use one provider for all your inbound and outbound needs.

4. All your calls are being converted to analog — Dropping the ATA and going dedicated WiFI VoIP means your digital call will no longer be converted to analog for your home cordless phone. Even if your cordless phone is digital, the digital transmission is between the phone and base. The ATA converts the call to analog and your cordless converts it to digital and back again. Long trip for a cordless call. Switch to ‘all digital’ and you and your callers will notice the difference.

5. One person on the phone ties up others — An ATA does the same job as a single line phone jack in the house. I’ve got a friend who has 3 WP04 VoIP WiFi phones in his house. He set up 3 sub-accounts (for free) with his VoIP provider. Now he essentially can never have a busy line at home. How? Remember, unlike dialtone lines VoIP is setup to work as a path. So he, his wife and his daughter can all be on their VoIP WiFI phones at the same time, they can all receive incoming calls at the same time, and all setup conference calls at the same time. As long as his internet connection (most DSL and Cable lines can handle even more than this) is up and running, it sounds like he’s running a full-fledged PBX at home, but he’s not. Oh, and he’s spending around 90% less than if all 3 of them were each using a family plan cell phone.

If you’d like the best of both worlds such as VoIP and a cell phone, then look no further than a dual-mode VoIP phone with a full login browser. This way, you can use VoIP at home or at the office and when you need to take a call on the road or when you’re not in a WiFi hotspot, you’re still using the same phone.
