■ Differences between TELINK050 and toll-free apps such as Skype and LINE Out
- Toll-free apps must be installed at both parties, but TELINK050 can call anybody with any numbers (with some exceptions).
- TELINK050's sound quality better and it is more secure, making it suitable for business use.
- Install TELINK050 on your smartphone and you are good to go (call receivers don't have to install TELINK050).
- TELINK050 gives you your own internet telephone number starting with 050. Call receivers feel reassured by identifying your 050 number.
■ All you have to do is to install the TELINK050 app on your smartphone. You don't have to rent a cumbersome mobile phone for overseas use.
You can install it anywhere in the world. It will be ready to use in seconds.
■ Advantages of the TELINK050 app

Call any combination of domestic, overseas, landline, and mobile numbers. (Some exceptions apply, including toll-free numbers.) Enjoy low-cost calls regardless of the call receiver's carrier, situation, or location.
