    "I never thought i'd find absolutely free calling."

    June 2, 2013  |   By saintcollinsgd

    Version: iCall 4.0.0.20

    Pros

    You can make 12, 5 minute calls a day. Or you can have someone call you through an access number, then type in your extension for longer calling. My parents do this and I talked to them free for over an hour straight.

    Cons

    Well for me the access number was not correct. So I had to first call someone with caller ID and use the number that showed up. And then i was able to use that number every time. Also, recently it's been kicking me off before the dial tone and i have to dial several times. But i still get through after several tries.

    Summary

    iCall, to me, is amazing. To my knowledge, there is no APP out there that offers what it does (trust me, i've checked and found only this). Just a few issues, but i have Skype and several others downloaded in the past, and they also have had issues. So, i can't complain. Their are just a few flaws, and nothing major. So, i give it a 9.6 out of 10. Thank you to iCall for this free service!!

    "Works well for what I needed"

    March 18, 2013  |   By Lizinvabch

    Version: iCall 4.0.0.20

    Pros

    Stuck at home without a phone- left my car at the car repair place (with my phone in it by accident) I just needed to get in touch w the shop, for less than 5 mins.

    Cons

    Can't think of any, because I won't be using it for more than 5 min calls.

    "Great for people who can read/understand instructions"

    October 9, 2012  |   By chinamikey

    Version: iCall 4.0.0.20

    Pros

    100% give what it promises.

    Cons

    Evidently can't be used by the average human monkey.

    Summary

    It does what it says. You get free 5 minute calls. End of story. I read the previous reviews and all the negative ones had to do with either:
    People trying to blame the software when it was their own system that is obviously buggy
    People trying to use it on the mobile phone--I ask, WHY? it's designed to be used mainly from your PC, not mobile phones. Stop complaining, read directions and TOS carefully, and if you haven't fallen out of your tree yet, then perhaps you can use it.

    "A godsend for broke geeks"

    August 6, 2011  |   By Vodage

    Version: iCall 4.0.0.20

    Pros

    Allows you to call someone's cellphone without paying for telephone service. Cheaper than a payphone, and easier to find as well. Leftover money can be used to pay for more important things, e.g. beer, cigarettes, internet bill, MMORPG account

    Cons

    If you want to have a long phone conversation with some noob who doesn't have voip installed on their cellie, I guess there'd be a major problem with a 30-second interrupt every five minutes.

    Summary

    If you compare this to a telephone, of course it's going to seem like a 1-or-2-star thing. Compare it to a cheap VOIP service. Hell, the sound quality easily beats MagicJack and Vonage, and imo it sounds better than MetroPCS as well. Doesn't compare to Skype, but anyone with a brain, a laptop, and a wi-fi hotspot is taking full advantage of that application already. In fact, anyone with a brain, a cell phone, and the ability to make an extra 3 dollars a month has skype on their phone, and can recieve calls from phoneless PC users everywhere. Granted S2G has some limits, (10,000 minutes per month, 6 hours per day, 50 different numbers per day) But I digress.
    iCall is a godsend to someone like me, who does the majority of his networking over the internet. A program that actually dials out for free (time limit be damned) is excruciatingly rare. I've checked.

    "The software is junk and not worth it."

    July 30, 2011  |   By KewlKat007

    Version: iCall 4.0.0.20

    Pros

    Make calls.. But not for long.

    Cons

    Has a five minute time limit on call which they normally don't tell you on the main page.

    Summary

    It's a piece of junk. They brag how it's free and it's ad-supported. So in other words you listed to a 30-second or longer advertisement just to be able to talk for five minutes?

    At first I couldn't even hang up calls b/c the app was freezing and locking up. When I did get it working after a few disconnected calls I dig a little deeper in the website and find it's a five-minute limit on free calls.
