Founded by Yashas C Shekar, Vijayakumar Umaluti and Sandesh E, FREEKALL is being launched today and is open for public beta. To use the service, users have to call their number 080-67683693 after which the call will drop and they will receive a call back. They can answer the call and dial the number of the person they want to talk to, followed by the symbol #. Both calls will be bridged and users can talk freely.
The founders have been working on this concept from the last eight months. Apart from the co-founders,another team member Sabari Jagadisheen played a key role in developing the product. Yashas explains,
With the advent of smart phones,the era of telecommunication has changed horizons and communication has become almost free in developed countries with a number of service providers. But the problem in developing countries is that 95% of the population does not have access to either 3G or 4G which is almost a mandatory to make internet calls using Skype,Viber and other such applications.
In the public beta launch of FREEKALL, people can use three min/day without registering and once they register they get 12 min/day free. Users can register by visiting the website
or replying to their SMS template by filling the provided details. Once the beta is over, the 12 minutes/day cap will be released and users can talk for as long as they want for free.
