Google lets you make free phone calls anywhere in the US or Canada for the rest of 2011. Works great! All you need is a free Gmail account.
From Your Computer
Browse to Gmail and click, Call a Phone on the left side. Obviously you need a mic and speakers but most laptops in the last few years have these built right in.
From Your iPod/iPhone
Of course you need an Internet connection and a compatible headset. Then download free app Talkatone and signin to your Gmail account.

Great service for…
- An extra line
- No cell coverage
- Anonymous calling (random caller id if you haven’t setup Google Voice)
Calls to other countries and after 2011 will be at discounted rates.
