Only service I could find that you could have on-line calling without downloading an App.. Being able to call a local number and then having a direct dial to who you want to call is great, fast and efficient.

I've been using RingBritain for more than 2 years. I tell everyone about it who has friends overseas. There are several ways of using it, and I think I've used them all as my needs change. The easiest way is to buy a Virtual Number and program it to the number I want to call. I just dial a local 7 digit number and it rings straight through to a friend in England. For $9.99 a month, we can talk for up to 2000 minutes (over 33 hours) within a month. For more flexibility, I can instead use that $9.99 a month and buy an access code and then call whoever I want, wherever they are (there might be some limitations) and talk for 1000 minutes, with no deadline on when the minutes have to be used or lost. And finally, I want my friends to call me too, so I bought a Virtual # in England and my friends just dial the local 6 digit number and it rings through to me.
Using a Virtual Number, the call automatically ends after 60 minutes. This is great because in England the local phone service will start charging their own surcharges on calls that exceed 60 minutes. This ensures the call never exceeds that and incurs BBT costs.
The call quality is perfect 90% of the time. On the rare occasions that I hear an echo, I can just hang up and call back and usually get a clear line. I was told by someone that most calls use a satellite, but if it's a busy night when everyone is making calls (such as New Years Eve), then excess calls will be routed through the underseas cable and it's those calls which have a poorer quality.
In summary, for 1 cent a minute or less, I can talk to my friends in England. Imagine, an hour phone call for $0.60!

Excellent call rates from the US to the UK and I also use their virtual number service so I have a UK number that my friends and family in the UK can call at local rates. It transfers directly to my cellphone and the call quality is excellent.
