The only way would be if your family got Basic Talk. Any outbound calls YOU make are free in the USA and to Canada and Puerto Rico.

answer 3
If your family in Indiana has BasicTalk there will not be long distance charges when they call you. BasicTalk includes unlimited calling throughout the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. BasicTalk requires a working internet connection to function. While phone jacks can be used with BasicTalk to hook up wireless phones, BasicTalk does not offer support for that option.

You need to have broadband and Wi-Fi in you home

answer 2
As long as you have broadband and Wi-Fi. You can hook this up and they will give you a phone number. Make sure this is not a returned box, because you will get assigned an old number, and get some ones calls I guess it happened to one person. All the other reviews were 5 stars including me.

Yes, all you need is a high-speed internet connection, a router, and the BasicTalk box to get started. You will be assigned a number during the sign-up process.

You can use up to 5 phones with a single BasicTalk line. With BasicTalk you get unlimited calling within the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico (Reasonable Use Policy applies), but outbound international calling is not available, although incoming calls from anywhere in the world will be completed to your BasicTalk line. You can learn more at http://BasicTalk.com.

answer 2
THIS UNIT WORKS AS A GATEWAY TO YOUR INTERNET FOR VOIP SERVICE. THE NUMBER OF PHONES IS NOT LIMITED.

Other factors such as your wireless phone or the number of jacks in your home will limit the number of phones you use... but, that can be expanded by adding jacks or wireless phone systems.
