Not free to landlines and mobiles, but pretty cheap. –  outsideblasts Sep 8 '09 at 5:52
@outsideblasts - it's "free" if you buy the el-cheapo unlimited-per-month outbound calling.. it's <10 USD a month (I think it's only $5) –  warren Sep 10 '09 at 11:23

There are a number of providers, but most are not free.

  • Skype - Calls to India are 0.054 GBP/minute including VAT (or 0.106 USD/minute including VAT).
  • Gizmo5 - Calls to India from a computer are 0.09 USD/minute.
  • Google Voice - Calls to India are 0.07 USD/minute, however Google Voice requires an existing US number in order to sign up.

From http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080323055302AAFe5Nr

If you're on the PC and they are on a phone:

Go to https://www.gizmocall.com/

Steps from their site:
1. Go to Gizmo Call and login or register
2. Type the telephone number of the person you want to be able to call you.
(They can be in any country around the world.)
3. Immediately a free local number for that country is assigned and displayed 
  to you
4. The person you called can now call you back using this new local number

Note : That all for 20 mins

Considering phone calls arn't free, you'll probably end up having to cover costs one way or the other- and phone companies do profit a fair amount from international calls. Cheap is plausible, but other than google voice and possibly skype, i don't think there's any way to make free calls, and both of those are (or were) US only. You're best off using skype or similar on both ends.

So.. i don't think there is an answer other than 'there isn't one'

I think you should look at PennyTel. If you use an internet connected device like iPhone or your computer, you can make calls to India for 0.02 AUD per minute.

For unlimited free Local and STD call to any mobile or land phone I suggest you to use Dingaling. I am using this to make free call. Dingaling only allow ISD call in between US and Canada.

See the link to know how to make worldwide free local and STD call.

For best Application to Application call use Skype. Skype is the best for PC to PC or PC to phone (Must install skype App) call.
