Free international voice and video calls.

Would like to know how dependable it is and the quality of the connections. Also ease of set up.

I use the Line app on my iPhone. It's easy to set up, a free download at the app store. I think it's good for messaging, etc similar to whatsapp. As for phone calls you'd do better with two tin cans and some string. I have found the calls on Line to be not clear and the calls fade in and out or frequently drop. As a comparison I think it is a lower quality call than Skype. But then again, it is free... :happy

Several providers have a feature called wifi calling now that will allow free calls and texts to the USA from overseas. If you pair it with a paid wifi network it's pretty powerful.
