Engineers from M S Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Bangalore have come up with ‘FreeKall’: a new free voice calling service without the need of any Internet connection. Developed by Yashas Shekar, Vijayakumar Umaluti and Sandesh Eshwarappa, FreeKall will be free for all and offer voice calls to users on all mobile devices.
The free voice calling will however come at a price of its own: the service will be incorporating advertisements between calls. All you have to do is dial the FreeKall number or give a missed call to it, and the service will call you back. Just enter the number of the person you want to connect when prompted and FreeKall will do the rest. Upon connecting, you can start talking for free. Users will hear an ad instead of a dialler tone when the call is being connected. Further, both the caller as well as the called person will have to pause their conversation at intervals of two minutes during which they will hear an ad as well.
As of now, unregistered users can make a call that lasts three minutes. If you are a registered FreeKall user, your conversation can last for 12 minutes. The makers have ensured that the service will give away limited calls in a month’s time to ensure unlimited calling. Further, International calling facility is also in the pipeline. FreeKall aims to handle 10 million calls a day, aiming at $30 million revenue by the end of 2015.
