New pfingo ringback service

I’ve been using pfingo for quite a while to make cheap call… well, it’s free because I am still using the free credits I got.

It was always “difficult” to use when I’m in Singapore because

  1. I need to use the laptop or connect using wifi on my E61
  2. This usually means I’m at home or somewhere with a landline… Now why do I want to pay to call using pfingo when local landline calls are virtually free?

Don’t get me wrong, I still use it locally… e.g. to call PG when she is overseas… but I also have a zone1511 account and I use that too if I have to call overseas on the move.

Finally, there is a practical way to use this pfingo service. They have (finally) implemented ringback or callback service. You’ll receive the callback on your handphone and after you pick up the call, you can dial the number you want. Handphone charges? Free incoming calls.

The callback can be triggered via internet or by calling a special number (or by sms… although I haven’t figured out why anyone would want to do that and get charged for the sms). I suppose it uses the caller id to identify who to call back. The rates? 5 cents / min (for Singapore to Singapore).
