Once you've chosen a Service Provider, you'll need to open an account and deposit funds into that account. If you're reluctant to use your credit card online, many ofrepparttar PC to Phone companies offer alternative forms of payment (e.g., PayPal, direct deposit, wire transfer, etc.). Next, you'll need to downloadrepparttar 105132 'softphone' application from your service provider. A softphone is merelyrepparttar 105133 interface program through which you dialrepparttar 105134 number ofrepparttar 105135 person you're calling and usually only takes a few minutes to download on evenrepparttar 105136 slowest 'dial-up' Internet connections. Softphones generally resemblerepparttar 105137 keypad on conventional telephones and work in muchrepparttar 105138 same way. Depending on your service provider,repparttar 105139 manner in which you 'dial out' will vary. Typically however,repparttar 105140 softphone will take into account where you are inrepparttar 105141 world and adjustrepparttar 105142 dialing settings accordingly. In other words, you'd dialrepparttar 105143 exact same series of numbers intorepparttar 105144 softphone that you would if you were using a conventional telephone.

Once you've made a few calls to friends and family aroundrepparttar 105145 world using your computer, you'll quickly realizerepparttar 105146 fantastic cost advantages of making 'PC to Phone' calls versus 'Phone to Phone' calls.

So what'srepparttar 105147 catch?

Whilst PC to Phone is terrific, it isn't perfect. There are some disadvantages that you should be aware of and these include:

a) Quality: If you accessrepparttar 105148 Internet via a 'dial-up' connection (i.e., through a normal telephone line), you may experience call quality degradation if you are surfingrepparttar 105149 web and talking to someone via PC to Phone atrepparttar 105150 same time. In other words,repparttar 105151 'bandwidth' or 'capacity of your Internet connection' may be limited and this could affect your calling ability.

b) Echo: If you're using computer speakers to hearrepparttar 105152 person you're talking to, that person may hear an 'echo' of their own voice. This happens for reasons similar to that encountered withrepparttar 105153 'speakerphone' function on conventional telephones. Atrepparttar 105154 same time as you hear that person's voice coming through your computer speakers, your microphone will also detectrepparttar 105155 voice and re-transmitrepparttar 105156 signal back torepparttar 105157 person you're talking to.

This 'echo' can easily be avoided by using either a computer headset or by turning your speaker volume down so as to minimizerepparttar 105158 chance of your microphone picking up and retransmittingrepparttar 105159 incoming voice signals.

c) Cost: If you're calling relatively small and/or remote countries, you should checkrepparttar 105160 rates ofrepparttar 105161 PC to Phone Service Providers' to those countries before signing up for their PC to Phone service. For example, calling a country like Fiji inrepparttar 105162 Pacific Ocean is almost as expensive using PC to Phone as it is using a conventional telephone. The reason for these high rates to certain countries is due torepparttar 105163 PC to Phone Service Provider not havingrepparttar 105164 necessary switching equipment (required for switching your call back torepparttar 105165 traditional telephone network fromrepparttar 105166 Internet) physically located in that country. In these scenarios, your calls are routed throughrepparttar 105167 traditional telephone network for a good proportion ofrepparttar 105168 distance they travel and as such they attract many ofrepparttar 105169 long-distance charges thatrepparttar 105170 traditional networks impose. If you'd like to call one country in particular, it's definitely worth shopping around to find out whether prospective PC to Phone companies haverepparttar 105171 necessary switching equipment located in that country (and hence, can pass onrepparttar 105172 savings to you inrepparttar 105173 form of cheaper rates).

So give PC to Phone a try. You've really nothing to lose and haverepparttar 105174 potential to save yourself a lot of money.
