    A friend of mine uses a Win98 PC and I'd like to know whether there is
    any free VoIP app that also runs under Win 98 ?

    Thanks
    Frank

    Attention!
    Having SJphone installed is not enough to talk. You have to purchase an
    account with any ITSP like Vonage or start your own service. The direct
    host2host calls work, but you need to know your party's IP-address.

    So, I guess this is somewhat tricky.
    thanks for the hint, never of heard before

    Its simple, no need to worry. You could use it with voipuser,
    http://www.voipuser.org/ for free.

  7. Pity the site isn't a bit more helpful. What's it for ? To give people
    in the UK another phone number ?

    Regards, John.

    It's really good. :)
    I've read some reviews from users who didn't quite get the registration
    issue.

    I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for, but
    "PicoPhone allows multiple concurrent calls..."

    From the SJphone help: If you want to talk to several respondents
    simultaneously, you need to start a conference. That can be done by
    clicking the Conference button on the SJphone Main panel. Now you may
    talk to several respondents simultaneously. They also will hear you
    and each other.

    What's wrong with Skype? It does work with win98 -- if you get the
    correct version.

    See: http://www.oldversion.com/

    I am using v1.4.0.84

    And the different versions collaborate well? We intend to have
    conference calls between PCs with XP, a PC with Win98 and a Mac. Any idea ?

    The Skype FAQ says:
    Did you have any of the difficulties mentioned?

    Can't see why not. Conferencing is a function of the network service.
    (The PC is just the client software.)

    It's free to download and install. Why not try it out? Install one to
    win98, another to an XP machine, another to a MAC (humm, des it work on
    MAC?) Then try it out. Post back here if you do.

    I have to convince my colleagues in 3 different countries. This will
    take a little time. We'll see.
