2. Check whether your mobile phone has WiFi or not
Almost all the modern mobile phones have the option to use the VoIP service, but the Internet access is required. If your mobile phone has WiFi, you can connect your mobile for free to the hotspot or any other spot with Internet access. Public hotspots are open for general use, but in some places, such as hotels or workplaces, you will need the password to access. In places you do not have free WiFi access, you can connect to the Internet by using GPRS, EDGE or UMTS, but you must remember that it may not be free of charge.

4. Call through HaloNet
In order to make a call all you need is to connect to the wireless network, so usually you need to be within a wireless range. Wireless networks are very popular in public places and cafés, restaurants, hotels, supermarkets, work places and many others. If you own a WiFi router at your home place, you can also use it to make online calls. You need to remember that the call quality depends on the strong wireless network signal, so you should not go too far from the access point.

VoIP service in your mobile phone is a very comfortable solution that allows you to talk for free or cheaply. You can also avoid the expensive roaming. Your mobile phone needs to be equipped with WiFi and you need to be within a wireless range.
