Jaxtr : International Calls for FREE


I got to know a very good service for bloggers. With this service bloggers can be in touch with their readers without even revealing their actual number. This new service is Jaxtr. Let us see how it works and what jaxtr is?

What is jaxtr?


  • Jaxtr links your regular phone to the web, so you can hear from any caller worldwide while keeping your existing phone number private. You can even control who calls you so that your regular phone is not always ringing. (If you are that popular.)
  • You don’t need another handset like Skype as it works with any phone you already use, including ordinary landline phones. Moreover, you don’t need to download anything and install on your computer.
  • Be happy, as Jaxtr is Free. So you can call friends and family overseas at the same cost and with the same convenience as calling a friend down the street. (Source: Jaxtr)

How to make it work for you?


  1. Register for jaxtr.
  2. Link your regular phone(s) where you want to receive/make calls.
  3. Create a widget for your blog or social network or email signature etc if you want.
  4. Invite your friends.
  5. Put this on your blog as you can see in my sidebar.
  6. You are all set.
  7. When you plan to call one of your friends, just create a number for them in your account. (Remember, you have to provide your number when it says, ‘Call me Free’, you don’t have to enter your friends’ phone number.)
  8. Jaxtr will assign a number for your friend so that you can call them anytime you want for free.
  9. Every month you get 100 free jax minutes.

Cool, hmm…. Enjoy another free service to be in touch with your friends.

How good is your mobile phone ?

I got this in a forwarded mail, so I don’t know the authenticity of this. But should be fun to check where your mobile was manufactured and how good it is.
  • Press *#06# on your mobile phone.
  • It will give you a 15 digit number.
  • Note down that number.
  • Check the 7th and 8th number.
If the 7th and 8th digits are :
  • 02 or 20 – mean it was assembled in the Emirates which is very Bad quality.
  • 08 or 80 – means it was manufactured in Germany which is not bad.
  • 01 or 10 – mean it’s manufactured in Finland which is Good.
  • 00 – means it was manufactured in original factory which is the best Mobile Quality
  • 13 – means it was assembled in Azerbaijan which is very poor quality and potentially very dangerous to your health!!!
So go ahead and check yours.
