Yahoo has announced the launch of their VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) suite of services.

Yahoo’s VoIP offering is built on two primary services: Phone Out, and Phone In.


According to Yahoo, with Phone Out customers “can easily stay in touch with their friends and family in more than 180 countries across the Europe, Asia and the Americas, with low-cost calling from their PC to traditional phones and mobile phones. Calls within the U.S. and to more than 30 other countries can be made for two U.S. cents a minute or less.”

And with Phone In, customers will be able to “receive calls on their PC from traditional and mobile phones. For $2.99 a month or $29.90 a year, people can select a personal phone number, and receive incoming calls at no additional charge. For instance, New York residents, who have friends and family in London, are able to choose a local London-based phone number. When remote friends and family make calls to the personal number, they will be charged for placing a local phone call to that phone number. People can choose to have multiple phone numbers, and wherever they travel, their phone numbers will follow them.”

Free voicemail will also be included with the service.

Perhaps one of the slickest things about this service is that you can choose your own phone number, and when you do, you can search the entire U.S. (or England or France) for either number or letter combinations. They make it really easy!

You do not have authority or permission to charge my bank account for any service that yahoo is offering I am also sending this same email to the Better Business Bureaus and the Department of justice. I feel a crime has occured with employees of your company Illegally
