Review for PC-2-Phone, the new product from Phone Cards Central
December 30, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsPhone Cards Central has recently launched a new product on their website – PC-2-Phone. This is an application which allows you to make cheap phone calls right from your PC, with only an internet connection and a headset with microphone.
The application can be downloaded for free right from the company's website, and then can be used it to make low rate international calls to pretty much any destination in the world! So why would you use this application, and not your calling plan? To begin with, the rates are lower (for domestic calls within USA for example, you get 35% more minutes using PC-2-Phone, than by using your calling plan) and the dialing process is a lot faster: you just dial the number in international format (no access number or PIN required), or save all your contacts in the contacts list and connect to them with just one click.
They have added some great features to this product too, such as virtual number (you rent a phone number in a location/country of your choice, and other people can call you on that number at local rates), voice mail and call forward. But let's see what the company's representative has to say about the product:
"We had the idea to develop and add this new product to Phone Cards Central, since we realized there might be many people out there who can benefit from calling directly from their PC – with lower rates. The business sector is a great example: if you're collaborating with someone abroad and you wish to call them, you can do so from right in front of your PC: call them on their mobile, and discuss the latest offer they sent to you via e-mail; why call using a phone, when you can simply call using your head set and also receive lower rates?
Besides, we expect the Virtual Number feature to be of great help to people who travel a lot, especially to various locations; assume all your friends and family are in USA but you travel a lot to many different countries. Then, you can simply rent a US Virtual Number, give it to your friends in USA and they can call you paying for a simple local call; you can answer from the PC-2-Phone application, or have the calls forwarded to your own cell phone. There's really many, many ways that this new product can benefit our customers, and any feedback on their part is welcome and we'll sure use it to improve the product furthermore!"
