How To Set Up Free VoIP Phone With Free Incoming Number

I know that this is not a new technique and has been around for quite sometime. When I wanted to set up my free Internet
Phone with Free US Incoming number, I had to search around in forums and websites to find the exact information which I was looking for. I knew that one can setup a free VoIP phone using Gizmo5 and some free incoming DID number but everything was in theory and I had to actually do some Proof of Concept.

Last weekend I decided to work on setting up a free Landline (VoIP) number with Free incoming number. It worked and I was able to successfully make and receive calls for free. So I thought I will write up steps that I followed to get my VoIP working in just one hour.

Things you need for getting this Free VoIP phone

Broadband Internet Connection - Make sure you have some broadband internet connection which is available to you 24/7.

Gizmo5 Account - You can create Gizmo5 account free at Gizmo5.com. You need to download the software and create an account. After you create your Gizmo5 account, you will receive your SIP number, username and passowrd.

Free Incoming Number - Once you receive your Gizmo5 setup information, you need some free DID(Incoming) number that can route your phone calls to your VoIP phone. There used to be lot of sites that offered free DID numbers for US including StanPhone, FreeDigits.com - TalkDigits.com - CallDigits.com, SipNumber.com but now this sites doesn't offer any free incoming numbers for VoIP. So the only site that gives you free US Incoming number is IPKall.com.
