JaJah.com is an service that allows you to make cheap international calls. Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to JaJah.com (or use the mobile apps).
  2. Enter your phone number.
  3. Enter the phone number you want to call.
  4. Your phone is called first, you answer, then the number you want to call is dialed, and you pay one low rate to jajah.

The advantage of this is that on many phones incoming calls are free (such as most land lines and prepaid phones in other Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America). So for example when I’m in Holland I can pick up a 10 Euro dutch sim card, put it in my iPhone, put the number into jajah and place all the calls I want without ever using any of the 10Euro from the dutch sim card (as all the calls will be incoming from jajah). I do pay jajah a low per minute rate.

I find this service extremely useful, and have been using it without issue for years. Its great for calling airlines for example or any other phone call that may take a long time because of being on hold or whatever else. The quality is excellent as well, never have any problem hearing or understanding nor do people have an issue hearing and understanding me.

Update – JahJah is no longer functional. They did refund any credit left on people’s accounts.
