Gizmo has launched a new service named ,Opensky which allows any mobile phone, web browser or IP aware phone network (SIP, asterisk, etc) to communicate with Skype users. OpenSky supports sending text messages and voice calls.

OpenSky can be used through any High end VOIP systems(like Cisco call manager, Avaya etc), PBX, Wifi enabled phones, SIP devices and the best part , all mobile phones which doesn`t have any internet or data plan.

How to Use OpenSky

From any PC:
Go to from any browser, register (it's free and requires just an email address). Then enter a Skype ID like this: skype_echo123 (in this example echo123 is the Skype username). The skype_ indicates to GizmoCall that you want to dial a Skype user. Then click the green call button and you're ready to talk! Nothing to download or install. 1-5 minute calls are free. For longer calls you will need to buy OpenSky. This is best way...

How VoIP Technology used in Mumbai terror attack

26/11 Mumbai terror attack was one of the brutal inhuman act, this act is not possible without the use of the technology. Today we will discuss how VoIP technology was used for the terror attack 

Investigations showed that the terrorists used one USA virtual number (+1-201-253-1824) and other five Austrian DID (direct inward dialling) numbers with an Austria country code. 

This USA virtual number was used by the handlers in Pak to route calls to terrorists in India. The virtual number was initially set up by a company Callphonex, by a person called Kharak Singh from India on 20-21 Oct 2008 with email ID “” (registration details can be changed) Investigations shows that this email ID was accessed many time from Pakistani IPs.

To activate the callphonex VoIP account, The initial payment of $250 was made by some Muhammad Ishfaq through a Lahore-based agent using moneygram. A second payment of $229 (186.5 EUR) was sent to Callphonex from Western union money transfer location Madina Trading, Corso Garibaldi, S3A, Brescia, BS25100, Italy on November 25, 2008, 12:15pm with MTCN: 0579326626”. The senders name is Javed Iqbal, a Holder of Pakistani passport (Number KC094281) with date of Birth December 31, 1962.

We had a chance to visit Madina trading in Brescia, Italy and see the receipt of the payment made. Freevcalls is the first one to release these photos on the website.
