Here I just want to make a review of how Google Voice can be applied in Making Free International Calls.  The primary use of Google Voice is that Google Voice offers a US phone number and  this phone number can receive activation code. In this way, we are able to get many free call offers. Second to this use is Google Voice can all the whole US for free.  As we all know, access numbers are involved in making international calls.

So,Google Voice helps a lot in making cheape and even free calls.

      Hi,nader, you will get a default number from SMSified. And you can test it by sending a SMS to this number and you can check Logs of this number to see incoming SMS.
      To send SMS with SMSified, I think that involves a lot which I am not familar with. So sorry for not being able to answer question about sending SMS with SMSified.

    Thanks for the info. Your blog is great.
    Using Pinger Textfree now. Great thing to register on the websites requiring SMS verification and to send free SMS all over the world, although there is some inconvenience – you cannot remove contacts from the list. Either way, it represents a cool way to stay anonymous, especially when combined with disposable e-mail services like Guerrillamail or Yopmail.
