Add Contacts To Your VoiFone™ Account

Make calls to anyone else worldwide running VoiFone™ through their computer. Calls made computer-to-computer are free of charge. You can also add contacts and call their land line or cell phone number with VoiFone™ OUT. Or, a VoiFone™ IN account provides you an ultra-cheap USA-based phone number that others can call to contact you inexpensively through your VoiFone™ account. Here are the step-by-step instructions showing how to ADD CONTACTS to your VoiFone™ account, whether you have the FREE, OUT or IN accou nts (or all 3):

Add Contacts For (1) FREE video calls and (2) Calls To Cell Phone and Land Lines

1. Add A Contact For FREE video calls:

First, open the software. Select the "Contacts" tab (see the first arrow below). Right click anywhere in the white area to get the context menu. You will see the "+Add" command. Click on it.

Add Contacts 1


A new window pops up asking for the new contact information. Here you must enter the name of your contact plus their "SIP" address. The SIP address will either be their Web Login ID for FREE calls, or their cell or land line phone number for CHEAP calls. The software will automatically convert this number to the correct SIP format. The sample below shows an entry for FREE calls. (For more details about the address configuration refer to the first 4 paragraphs on this page. We also suggest placing a check mark in the two boxes indicated so others will know you are online, and so you will know when your contacts are online. Of course, these are optional selections and can be changed at any time. For instance, if you wish to hide your online presence, un-check the second box. Please note, you can drag the edges of this window to re-size it so you can see everything you type (this example has been resized from the default size allowing you to see everything typed in the example.) You may also wish to add more detail to the Name field so you will remember whether this is a FREE call or a cell phone or land line call. When done, click on "OK".

Add Contact 2


Your new contact has now been added. When they are online, you can call them by clicking on their name, then clicking on the green CALL button as shown below. To hang up, click on the green Hang Up Button. (NOTE: To make a free video call, you must first connect your webcam, select Options/Preferences/Multimedia Settings and then select the Playback, Ring and Capture devices followed by "DONE".)

Notice that the software has automatically converted the phone number you added to a standard SIP address. To call the cell phone or landline of your contact, just highlight their name and click on the green CALL button.
