Hm, to be honest, I resorted to such services and programs a couple of times (when I got the battery off the phone, but I needed to make one necessary call).
The article selected the best (in my humble opinion # 128076;) services that allow you to call from a regular computer to your phone. For a conversation, it is necessary that you have a microphone and headphones connected (and a high-quality Internet).
1) The services below. Often require an updated version of Adobe Flash Player. Therefore, if any service gives an error, I recommend updating the flash player.-
2) If your interlocutor does not hear you, for example, your microphone began to work somehow strange. I recommend see this note.-
3) If you have headphones with a microphone with two plugs, and there is only one audio connector in a laptop (PC), check this out.-

By the way, if there are additions on the topic, then the comments are always open!
In this article, we will consider some of the most popular ways to make calls from a computer or laptop to a landline and cell phone, try to highlight the main pros and cons of each option, and also figure out whether it is really possible to do it for free, or, after all, there is free cheese only in a mousetrap.
If you are interested in the topic of phone calls using a computer, we believe that it has the technical ability for this: a sound card, microphone, speakers / headphones or an audio headset are available, and there is no need to dwell on this issue separately. Although it is still worth mentioning that a direct impact on the quality of communication during a call using Internet telephony will have how stable and high-speed Internet connection is.
So, you can make a call in two ways, using either an online service, and the call is made directly from the site: you just type the phone number on the electronic keyboard in the browser window and make a call, or using the program preinstalled on your PC. You can usually download it from the official website for free. The first option is convenient for not frequent one-time calls, since there is no need to take up space on your computer’s hard drive with rarely used programs. If you make calls regularly, it is preferable to install the necessary software once and have faster and more convenient access to the service, the ability to add a contact list and other functions that simplify life.

After registering and filling out all the necessary data, you will need to confirm your cell phone number and receive a small amount, about 20 rubles, that you can just spend on making free calls.
How to call from computer to phone using Skype (free)
Skype. Skype Technologies software product. A pioneer in the VOIP telephony industry, to this day, occupies a leading position among computer programs for making calls from PC to phone. It will be fair to say that the main and more popular functions of this software are voice and communication over the Internet between devices, including conference calls and conferencing. But now we are talking about the possibility of calls from PC to phone, and we will dwell on them in more detail.
In order to make a call you will need to download the latest version of the program from the official website: https://www.Skype.com/en/get-skype/
Versions for Windows, MacOS X, and Linux are available. To use the program, you must register. Next you need to either simply deposit money into your Skype account and each call will be charged, or select a tariff (package of minutes or unlimited) for a specific destination (country). You can get acquainted with the tariffs on the official website.
How to call from computer to phone using Sippoint (free)
Sippoint. Software application of the first Russian IP-telephony network Sipnet. For PC, there is a version for Windows only, it can be downloaded for free from the official website of the network: https://www.Sipnet.ru/products/sippoint
After installation requires registration. For some reason, it was not possible to go through the program itself; a registration error constantly flashed. You can also register on the site, but there you will definitely need to indicate your phone number. Sippoint’s interface is very similar to the QIP client, and in our subjective opinion, it is not as convenient as that of competing applications. When accessing the “personal account” section, you will be redirected to the corresponding section on the site.
Calls can be made either from the client or from the browser. Free calls are available within the framework of the action: no more than 30 minutes a day and no more than 5 in one day and only in the directions participating in the action. The direction changes daily, you can track in the calendar of promotions on the site. Yes, one more prerequisite. The balance of the personal account must be at least 500 rubles. The rest of the calls will be paid at tariffs, which, I must say, are noticeably lower than many VOIP services.
Unfortunately, we were not able to log in to the client. At the same time, the entrance to the personal account on the site was completed, but attempts to make a call, even a calibration, were unsuccessful. The cause of the problem, apparently indicated on the general version of the site only in the news section under the corresponding date, is already clearly evident in the personal account on the first line of the page:
How to call from computer to phone using Viber (only paid)
Viber. Another cross-platform application developed by Viber Media, subsequently acquired by the Japanese company Rakuten and changed its official name to Rakuten Viber. The software, originally launched for smartphones, soon acquired a desktop version for Windows, MacOS, and Linux.
You can download the application from the official website: https://www.Viber.com/en/download/
For registration and authorization in Viber, a mobile phone number is used. In this case, the application is synchronized with the mobile phone book, which is quite convenient. In contrast, by the way, from Skype, in which the phone book can be imported optionally. The desktop version is also tied to a phone number, moreover, in order to connect to it, you need to perform several tricky actions:
- Download the latest version of the client from the official site.
- Run the installation file on the PC.
- Open the application on your smartphone, log in.
- In order for the Viber account to synchronize on the phone and the computer, you need to scan the QR code in the program installation window on the PC using the QR code scanner in the application on the smartphone.
- Now the desktop version of Viber is ready to work.
How to call from computer to phone using WhatsApp (only paid)
Whatsapp. Facebook’s popular messenger for mobile devices with voice and calling, as well as a PC version for Windows MacOS and a web application. However, the web-version and desktop clients can only work together with a smartphone, on which the application is already installed and registered by cell phone number. As in the case of Viber, you will need to scan a QR code to synchronize devices. But we’ll immediately note that using WhatsApp you can call only users of this application, voice calls in this case will be free (only Internet traffic is paid), the function of calls to other phone numbers is not provided.
Facebook Messenger and Telegram have the same opportunity to call from web-based versions of applications to the phone of users of these programs. The latter also has versions for Windows, MacOS and Linux. But since it is impossible to call the phones of subscribers who do not use these clients, we will not consider them in more detail.
How to call from computer to phone using Youmagic (only paid)
Youmagic. Virtual telephone exchange. IP-telephony service developed by the MTT OJSC, a long-distance telecommunications operator. You can use the services either directly on the site through your personal account, or by installing the software client in Windows or MacOS. To register on the site, passport data is required, including a scan of the passport and photo. Not the most convenient option if you are not going to use the service all the time. However, the service has an advantage, it not only makes it possible to make calls, but also, upon registration, a unique international 15-digit telephone number or direct city telephone number with codes of some of the largest cities and other countries is provided. True, for this service you will have to pay a subscription fee of about 208 rubles per month for geo-referenced rooms and a conditional subscription fee of 1 rubles per month for a non-geographical tariff. Inside the Youmagic network, calls are free.
Finally, a few words about the services that are often mentioned in other sources when searching for information on this topic. Previously, they really were workers, but today we do not recommend spending time to deal with them:
