Making your first VoipDiscount call

For a fee call to any online VoipDiscount user, simply enter the username in the textbox and click the dial button. For a free call to any regular phone, enter the desired number in the textbox and click the dial-button. If you are calling a land line in one of our free destinations, the call will be placed at no costs at all. For all other calls, you will be asked to buy credits first.
Please note that when you call a number (even if it's local) you should always dial 00 + countrycode + areacode + subscribernumber)

Improving Sound Quality
To get the best possible sound quality, we highly recommend you try the following:

* Use a headset with a built in microphone. Headsets are available for purchase at most computer retailers and will dramatically improve sound quality.

* Tell your friend to get a headset. Note that voice quality is affected by the equipment on both sides of the conversation.

The best way to ensure high quality sound is to have a headset on both ends of the conversation.

If you don't have a headset, you are still likely to improve sound quality if you:

* Use headphones instead of your computer speakers
* Try moving the microphone closer or further away from your mouth
* Use an external microphone (note that most laptops use low-quality microphones)
* Update your soundcard drivers
* Note that if you don't own a microphone, you may be able to use a pair of headphones as a temporary solution by connecting these to the microphone jack of your sound card. Try it!


VoipDiscount is divided into several tabs, each with a specific purpose.

You can right-click any User Name in your Contact List to see a number of choices for communicating with, or managing this user in your Contact List.
