Picture of How to make free phone calls (US & Canada) using skype.
Free calls using skype and your home phone.

Step 1: Gather Stuff.

All you need is Skype and two phones, yours and whoever you are calling.

This is a fairly simple "trick", but commonly overlooked by people.

This can also be done using Skype and a microphone/speakers, but I didn't have a microphone.

Yes, its nice and I am used to keeping communication over Skype. There are other apps helpful to make over call to any country, Viber, Line, ringID, WhatsApp (specific area), Google Hangout etc.

Best way to make free PC to any landlines/cell phone calls is to use Googlevoice , it's inside gmail, and was for free until December 2010, however they extended the period free service and it's free for another year until December 2011. U can call anyone in North America (USA and CANADA Only) from Pc to landlines or cell phones. No ads, no wait , no time limit. Have fun
We still need skype credit to do this!! thanks though..
Only 2 problems with this method. #1. It's somewhat convoluted, and kinda hard to follow. Decent ible though. #2. For this to work, you need to have a paid skype account that allows you to call landlines for the low cost of around 3.99 a month; thusly, why would you need to use your home phone at all when you could simply cut it out of the equation and use your computer? The only way I see this being useful is if one lacks a microphone on their computer (though oddly enough you mentioned something about doing this with a microphone... you've essentially made an instructable on how to make a skype call) Though overall, a decently presented instructable. Bravo; but next time, make sure you explain a process a bit more, shall we say, novel.

Published: Nov 8, 2006 One of these days, I'll get around to adding that this doesn't work anymore to the start of this instructable. Until then, yes. I know. It doesn't work anymore It did, however, work great. Three years ago. When Skype was free.
Lolz yeah i noticed afterwards that it's a bit outdated. Ahh, when skype was free... those were the days...
