Fongo's a YMMV, as they market Fongo World for those not based in Canada (Canadian Fongo might not work in certain overseas destinations, we'd need a data point on using it in Thailand).notfromqc wrote: ↑Jul 12th, 2018 7:47 amIf you're ok with calling from a different number, then as above poster said use Fongo while on wifi.
Even better, if you have an iPhone/iPad, you can use SUDO app which has free calling and free outgoing/incoming texts. (Fongo only has free incoming, you have to pay for outgoing)
-1, unless using VPN (which can be a hassle, can slow down data speeds depending on location, carrier, device, etc. and some ppl don't know how to use VPN). Hangouts is free outbound Canada/US calling when located in Canada/US. In Thailand, VPN is a must and maybe GPS spoofing to be safe. Ironically, I have used Google Talk to call Canada from Thailand, and that worked. Not sure why Google kills Hangouts for use outside of NA.wearysky wrote: ↑Jul 12th, 2018 9:34 amGoogle's Hangouts Dialer is another option for internet-based calls.
I guess we need more info though - are you looking to call home? How often? Or are you looking to make calls to Thailand while you're in Thailand? Local sims are often a good option, depending on what your usage will be.
