Few months ago, Jaxtr launched FreeConnect feature which enables you to make unlimited free calls between listed free countries. Recently they added India and Pakistan in their free list.
The basic concept of free connect is to save international calling rates while both the persons (caller and receiver) will call a local access number in their country to get connected. Hence you pay only for the local calls, if you have unlimited local calling plan, then this call is almost free.
Lets take on example of adding one Indian number (+91-99XXXXXXXX) in Italy and how does it work.
Jaxtr gives you a local number and tell you to
Dial +39-02XXXXXXXX (Milan access number) to reach +91-99XXXXXXXX.
Save this number to your mobile phone so that you can call +91-99XXXXXXXX without access numbers or PIN.
Tell +91-99XXXXXXXX to call +91-22-XXXXXXXX (Mumbai access number) now, and at any other time, to talk with you for free.
How do You make this a free call with jaxtr?
After you call the local jaxtr number above, choose the FreeConnect option from the main menu (press "0" for main menu, and then press "2" for FreeConnect). When you choose FreeConnect, the friend you are calling receives a notification (via SMS and/or email) with a local number to call and get connected to you. Stay on the phone and wait for your friend to call in. Once your friend calls in, you can talk as long as you want at no charge from jaxtr. Note that your phone company regular charges still apply for the call to the jaxtr number.

Sometimes you do not know if your friend in India is calling back or not and you keep on waiting. Anyway its a good idea to talk for longer duration if you have unlimited calling plan and also good if you want to initiate the call from India.
I called for 4 minutes and the quality was reasonably good, but I had to inform my friend in India to call me back on this number.
