    I work in Vietnam and call home using Sipdroid as my softphone and Gizmo5 and Voip.ms as my Sip providers. Cost of call back to the states is 1 cents a minute. I just downloaded a new program called NetTalk that says you can call the USA and Canada for free but I have not tested it yet.

    I too suggest Skype - free if the other party is also using Skype; cheaper than mobile calls if calling landlines or mobiles.

    I also use to send sms - depending where I'm sending to, often cheaper than my telco as well!

    What's your experience with NetTalk? I am trying it from couple of days and it's working acceptable for me.
