Free Calls for Christmas from Jajah

Screenshot_1.png

Jajah will provide free global phone service between consumers in eighty countries on Christmas Day. Registered Jajah users will be able to make free calls, conference calls, scheduled calls, and text messages to anyone in the eighty countries even if the recipients are not in registered Jajah users.

For example, families can use Jajah to get the whole family together (up to ten people) for a free conference call. The registered user can set up the call on Christmas day or schedule the call in advance anytime between now and Christmas. Again, the only family member who needs to be a registered user is the person who sets up the call.

  • The numbers called do not need to be registered Jajah users

is a web free calls site

Jajah is a pretty decent startup and great VOIP provider. I myself review VOIP providers on my blog and jajah is one of my favorite.

To see my other favorites you might wanna look at my blog http://voipguides.blogspot.com

Guy,
I love your blog and quote it often. However like many other "minute stealer' plays Jajah really doesn't have a long term market need. In the future - services that enable a better communications experience will be king. look for companies like iotum, the Flat Planet Phone Co. to stand out. Saving money on calls which are becoming cheaper anyway is not a long term strategy.
(heck will all these paid for plugs for Jajah on this post, I might as well put in a plug for the TFPPC where I hang my hat!)

I had a phone virus (on my Treo 650 cell phone) last month that ended up getting access to my recent call history where it used jajah to drown my phone and others on my call list with calls that I had not wanted originated.

At one point one of my customers who I had happened to call during this period received 16 calls in the matter of 20 minutes.

How do you balance the value that people are commenting about with the issue that this can be used as a spaming service.

I have just signed up to Jajah - i wasn't sure about the whole VoIP and how good it actually was but it is brilliant and my calls to the US are now uber cheap...will be even better on christmas day! i'm going to be on the phone all day!

does anyone find it odd that Emma Morrell's post and Katerina's post are essentially the same? and how about all the other shiny, happy people posts. could this be blogposts for dollars?

*************

I foiund it odd too. If it's blogposts for dollars, I'm sure not getting any! :-)

Great news. I've been using Jajah for conference calls at work and with it being totally free at Christmas, the kids are going to spend a lot more time on the phone talking with their grandparents!
...Jajah is great and easy to use! I use it all the time to talk to my customer and vendors in the UK,,

Thanks to Jajah my phone bill is 80% lower. On Christmas day I´ll take the gift and set up a conference call with my mother in Poland and my sister in Germany. By the way merry Christmas Guy!

Cheers
Martin

Great news. I've been using Jajah for conference calls at work and with it being totally free at Christmas, the kids are going to spend a lot more time on the phone talking with their grandparents!

A better title for this post is "How to spread the word - fast"...Jajah is a mater at generating WOM & Buzz...give away free calls from real phone and everybody is talking :) From a tech perspective Jajah is nothing but good ol' callback

Jajah is great and easy to use! I use it all the time to talk to my customer and vendors in the UK.

Jajah has saved me so much money calling my family all around the world. It is the best and most reliable servcie out there. It's a must.

I liked your previous blog titles - in my feed reader it screamed out "A post by Guy Kawasaki". "How to Change the World" is very bland.

Anyway, back on topic - Jahah is excellent. I seriously can't wait for it to be fully supported on mobile devices.

I love this. I I use JAJAH all the time to call my mother in Australia.

Everyone should know about this! Its money completely wasted otherwise. Amazing!
