Not so popular but quite an old voip service is EvaPhone. Just a few years back when very less people were using internet on mobile, everyone used to make international calls using normal telecom service. This costed them very heavily. It was the time when voip providers grew up and started offering PC to Phone Calls.
Skype, Rebtel, Localphone etc started offering cheap international calls using their PC software (which allows Pc to Phone Calls). EvaPhone came into picture and started offering Free Pc to Phone Calls directly from their website. Because of its free calls, EvaPhone started growing pretty big and soon came into limelight. Offcourse it was not unlimited free calls (as the call duration and number of calls was limited per day per user).
That phase is quite over as everyone is now using internet on mobile and everyone is making calls from mobile itself. Turns out that EvaPhone has also evolved over time and it has launched its full fledged voip service. EvaPhone now offers almost all possible ways to make calls (like mobile application, PC application, Browser Calling, Callback methods and much more). Apart from offering free calls (trial calls), EvaPhone international calling rates are also pretty comparable to other services.
In this article we will look into details about EvaPhone and in the comment section, user can also provide their reviews.

EvaPhone – How to buy credit
Use Paypal, Skrill and major debit & credit cards to add credit.
- You can credit your account with as little as $1.
- Duration is rounded up to the nearest minute.
- There are neither connection fees, nor penalties applied to your credit.
- Credit lasts for 12 months – To keep your account active, you simply have to call at least once every 12 months, otherwise your unused credit may be lost.
According to me, EvaPhone is cheap when compared to other voip services like Skype. The good thing is you can add credit as low as $1 and it offers almost all the ways to make calls. So it does seem to be a good choice. What I can suggest is to first try them out with first free call (duration will be 3 minutes) and if you like their service then buy credit worth $1.
I am not sure of customer service of EvaPhone and I have not had a great experience with them (it was just average), so I suggest you to always buy credit of $1-$5 and not more. Only buy more credit when you are sure that you will easily consume it in no time. In short, there is no point keeping credit in EvaPhone account if you are not using them.
