It was designed mainly for PC to normal phone purposes. Now it also features PC-to-PC function. The PC-to-Phone offers free calls to any number in the U.S. and Canada. All other regions are not free of charge, however, they are really cheap... (for Americans at least...) PC-to-PC is however a bit complicated... to place such a call, you need to know exact IP address of the person you are calling to. Application allows you to use different skins.

Very good graphic design and lots of special features. Thanks to special compression method MediaRing Talk offers very good sound quality. To use it you need to register (for free) with MediaRing server. You are indentified by you phone number or nickname. The program functions rather as internet phone, however, the method of identification is a bit unusual. It is better to use it with ICQ. The MediaRing's setup will automatically detect ICQ and will install support for itself in it. MediaRing also offers several paid services lake PC-to-Phone calls (some of them are free of charge, too - like calls to U.S., Canada or (!!!) China). [ad-ware]

Text chat is sort of simple, allows only 2 people chatting. When testing it we have encountered problem of PalTalk's conflict with ZoneAlarm (the free version; see Other Links section).  Adverts in text chat and video chat window.

PhoneFree features also VoiceMail and TextChat (Bubble Chat, or Private Chat). The PC-to-Phone feature offers free calls to and within the United States. The PC-to-PC communication was tested on cable-modem and analog modem and was pretty good. Program is shipped from server by a special installation program, however the installation does not take too long (10 minutes) even on a modem connected computer. The installation is not customizable that could cause  problems to users working on two HDDs.
