A while back I signed up for RebTel after finding the free web phone call service on Facebook. I haven’t used it yet. The other day, my friend Jennifer asked me to try out Jaxtr. I believe they’re similar services, where you sign up online, invite friends, connect first online then save the local phone number you exchange with each friend. This might work great for me since I have family in different parts of Italy, and friends in different states across the U.S.
We use and love Skype (great video conferencing, chat and cool add-ons), but I love the idea of being able to make free (or cheaper) calls between mobile phones to family half way around the world.
If anyone has been using Rebtel or Jaxtr, please leave a comment here.
