FreeKall: Free Calling Without Internet in Across India

 
Following the dawn of several web-based mobile communication platforms, such as WhatsApp and Viber, there was a noticeable decrease in the profit of telecommunication providers. For instance, in the current context, especially in youth community, we can say that WhatsApp has simply dominated over SMSs, as the former methods needs single internet connection to keep in contact with your friends. Likewise, Applications like Viber, which allows free audio & video calls over internet, we can find a decrease in amount of phone calls as well. Nevertheless, when we consider a country like India, where fast internet connection is just a dream for majority, it seems such Apps do not really allow ‘free calling’ in this country. However, understanding this situation, some students from India has come up with one effective solution, which allows you to make free calls without internet connection!


Free Calls? Seriously?


Yes, you heard us right! FreeKall, which is the endeavor by a Bangalore-based telephony startup, can be your savior, when you are running out of balance in your mobile phone. Yashas Sekhar, master brains behind this awesome idea, says that FreeKall has received such an incredible response from users, and that has caused the server to crash down several times. Nevertheless, we are sure that most of you are incredulous about this FreeKall, and some of you might even think that it is a sort of fraud! But, you can fix all these doubts when you know how FreeKall works and the full process behind provision of free phone calls around the country and globe (to be implemented soon).

 

How does FreeKall Work?


Actually, basic principle of FreeKall deals with the revolutionary methods of advertisements, where we can see audio advertisements instead of traditional counterparts. To be precise, when you are making the ‘free’ call using FreeKall, both the caller and receiver will have to listen to audio advertisements in-between phone calls. In addition, you will hear an advertisement instead of ring! If you call your friend using FreeKall, you and your friend will have to listen to an advertisement once your conversation reaches 2 minutes.
 
This process will continue throughout the call, but the duration of advertisement is just 10 seconds, which obviously seems adjustable. For this purpose, however, FreeKall keeps a tie-up with ‘Streetsmart Media Solutions’, one of the popular media solutions, and they will provide advertisements to be played during the mentioned interval. Through that interval, unlike most you think, the advertiser will have an extended reach towards the audient.
 
Of course, this principle of FreeKall makes enough sense. In other words, FreeKall seems profitable for both the user as well as advertiser at the same time. Nevertheless, FreeKall is currently in its testing phase, and there is some kinds of limitations in terms of calling time.
 

How to use FreeKall Without Internet ?


Unlike WhatsApp or Viber, FreeKall does not require installation of any applications in your mobile phone. Instead, it needs you to register on www.freekall.in, where you have to provide information such as your name, phone number, email address etc. Once the registration process is over, you shall follow these steps to make free calls to any mobile number in country.
  1.       First, dial 080-67683693 from your mobile phone
  2.       Server will disconnect your call after one ring
  3.       Quickly after disconnection, you will receive an automated phone call from FreeKall servers
  4.       During the call, you have to enter the phone number of the person, who you would like to call through it
  5.       Start talking, and be ready to hear advertisements between each 2 minutes of talk

For the time being, FreeKall lets registered users enjoy a daily talk time of 12 minutes, and 3 minutes for those, who have not registered in the website. Nevertheless, once FreeKall is available in its ‘real’ form rather than test phase, it will let all registered users enjoy unlimited talk time every day. In addition, as we had mentioned earlier, FreeKall will also let you make international phone calls without paying, but they are waiting for legal aspects to be cleared.
 
Since the service does not have requirements such as Smartphone or internet connection, you can use FreeKall with the basic handset of yours. Even if you have a old Nokia feature phone, you can enjoy this feature by dialling number we have provided above.
 

Let us talk a bit of Business


Although you might be doubtful about the business aspect of this venture, founders of the firm expect a big amount of revenue from this revolutionary service. Currently, expectations of the company add up to 10 million phone calls each day, which will in turn let FreeKall to have revenue of around $30 million soon. Along with India, the company will make the service available in Africa very soon. Therefore, in terms of business as well, FreeKall is ready to follow path of success.
 

To Wrap Up


 We firmly agree that FreeKall is a revolutionary service, especially in a country like India, where using internet-based free call applications are not possible by majority. At the same time, we would like to mention that, if FreeKall comes with enough technical resources and capabilities, the service would be a major threat to mainstream mobile phone carriers.
