Have you heard about JAJAH yet? If you haven’t chances are you will soon. JAJAH is a VOIP internet phone service that lets you make cheap phone calls using regular phones. Calls between JAJAH users are free and calls from JAJAH users to landlines or mobile phones anywhere in the world are subject to low rates.
As a JAJAH user, you make a call using a form on the Jajah.com web page or using one of many JAJAH plugins for Google, Outlook, Plaxo, Firefox and Mac OS/X. First your phone rings, and when you pick up, JAJAH connects you to the other party. JAJAH uses the internet to transmit the call long distance, and the local telephone network at both ends to connect the parties. Kind of like a sandwich: local telephone service is the bread, and the tuna fish is the Internet.
Today there are other companies providing similar services, but Jajah is one of the first, and with a new agreement with Intel just inked (May 2007), JAJAH Mobile integration with cell phones, conference calling, and customizable web site buttons, JAJAH is set up to be everywhere…soon.

Making a call
Once you register for free, you can make JAJAH calls. You have to buy some credit first, even if you are making free calls to other JAJAH users.
Free calls are subject to the following policy:
“Calls are free when both call participants are registered as JAJAH users and the call was initiated on JAJAH Web (www.jajah.com). When calling a number not registered with JAJAH and in countries where free phone calls are not available, calls are subject to JAJAH’s regular low rates. The low JAJAH rates also apply when the call was initiated on JAJAH Mobile Web (mobile.jajah.com) or the JAJAH Mobile Suite/Plugin.”
Setting up a Conference Call
Setting up a conference call using JAJAH is straightforward.
