Gizmo Project 22.214.171.1240
An internet telephone. As simple as an instant messenger. Now you’re talking.
Gizmo Project uses your internet connection (broadband or dial-up) to make calls to other computers. With the one click of a mouse in Gizmo, you’re connected to family, friends, and colleagues anywhere in the world.
And with inexpensive add-ons like Call In and Call Out, you can talk to any telephone–mobile or landline–on the planet. Any phone? Yes.
With Call Out, you can call any landline or mobile phone with super cheap Call Out Credits. Super cheap? How does 1.8 cents a minute sound? Enter any number into Gizmo Project and dial away. It rings like a normal phone, sounds like a normal phone, it only costs less. You only pay for the calls you make, and your credits only expire if you don’t use your account for six months. There are no monthly fees, no connection fees, and all billing is per minute. Simple, inexpensive, great quality.
Want to receive calls from mobile phones and landlines? With Gizmo Call In, for $5/mo, you can have a phone number in over 50 cities in the US and UK. And, your Call In number goes with you wherever you may roam. So the folks who call you are charged as if they’re calling you at home. Easy for you. Convenient and cheap for them.
