It has been quite some time since I have written anything here because very little changes over the years except that the cellular providers figure out new ways to make you part with your money. Telus no longer offers their One Number Unlimited except for those who are grandfathered into it; if you have had it for a long time they will continue letting you have it but it is closed to new customers.

I have discovered a new option however, Wifi is your Friend. You can use any cellular phone with wifi and free phone apps to have a free home phone or take it with you and make free calls anywhere there is wifi. Since public wifi is becoming more common every day, it is hardly necessary to pay for a cellular plan at all. There are many good deals out there on good, modern prepaid phones. It does not matter if it is locked in with a particular provider because all you need it for is the wifi.

I just received an email from skype informing me that skype to go numbers can be used again. Using the skype to go number as your Telus one number unlimited will allow you to access your skype account and make calls from your cellphone almost for free. This is indeed good news for all of us "HACKERS".

Well, it seems Telbo is available for use again, although in a slightly different form. Instead of offering subscriptions, they are offering 90 Freedays each time you purchase 10 dollars worth of credit. Seeing nothing on their website to indicate otherwise, I assume that you can still make unlimited calls upto 10,000 minutes per month. You now have to pay $3.33 per month to Telbo as well as $7. per month to Telus but you have free calls to any of about 18 countries all over the world. STILL AN OUTSTANDING BARGAIN ANY WAY YOU LOOK AT IT.

Well, it seems that Telbo is no longer offering subscriptions so I have to look elsewhere in an attempt to match what they used to offer. Unfortunately, there does not appear to be anything at the moment. It is still possible to save a lot of money by paying one cent per minute with Telbo for your cellular calls but it is no longer the bargain  it was originally. The telecommunications industry is so competitive and rapidly changing that new bargains crop up on a daily basis. If I find any, I will let you know and I hope you will do the same.

For those of you who do not feel like reading every post in this blog, I will summarize the methods of hacking your cellphone for almost free calls.

VOIP means voice over internet protocol, which is the wave of the future since it enables calling anywhere there is internet for free. The only fees you pay are to the voip providers who have offered to let you use their system. There are literally thousands of providers who offer varying rates and terms so merely finding one can be a daunting task.
I have spent hundreds of hours researching them and my favourite thus far is TELBO.COM

After you join Telbo and buy credit, you will be able to download their softphone and talk similarly to the way you would on Skype, only cheaper.

But you may not be comfortable being tied to your computer with a headset of questionable comfort. So Telbo offers a list of local access numbers in major cities of most countries. You can use any phone to connect with the Telbo system and call long distance anywhere for cheap Telbo rates instead of the usurious ones offered by your local telephone provider. But to be really mobile, it would be nice to use your cellphone to call the access numbers. However, cellular time is still expensive for the time you spend connected to the access number. Most cellular providers offer some plan where you can call a series of Favourite Numbers for free as part of the plan. But these plans are not exactly cheap, not to mention those Nasty Contracts. Wouldn't it be nice to use a prepaid phone to avoid the contracts without spending a fortune per minute? Enter, Prepaid Monthly Plans, which is the best thing to happen to communication since two cans and a string. The Top Rated Champion in this category is a Canadian telephone company called Telus. They offer unlimited calling to one number for a very miserly prepayment of only $7.CAD per month. Along with the Telbo unlimited Canada/US plan, I now spend a whopping $8.62 CAD and can talk as much as I want. NOW AREN'T YOU GLAD YOU VISITED THIS BLOG?

Since this blog is long enough for some of the earliest posts to be hidden, I thought I would refresh your memories about the most important aspect of hacking. No matter how good the voip company is at the end of the local access number you dial, you still have your cellular airtime charges to contend with. So allow me to repeat: ALMOST ALL CELLULAR SERVICE PROVIDERS OFFER SOME SORT OF PLAN WHICH LETS YOU REGISTER ONE OR MORE FAVOURITE NUMBERS. FIND THE LOCAL ACCESS NUMBER FOR YOUR FAVOURITE VOIP PROVIDER AND REGISTER THAT NUMBER AS A FAVOURITE WHICH YOU CAN CALL FOR FREE. If you have any questions, just reply to this post and I will be glad to answer them.

There is a new website I found recently which contains some excellent hacking potential for my American readers. This company, unlike others, does not use voice over internet protocol, VOIP , but uses PSTN, plain standard telephone numbers. The website can be found at:  On this site you will find local access numbers for most major American cities. When you call one of  these numbers you will hear a short 10 second ad, after which you will be able to make an unlimited number of calls of 10 minutes in duration. But the calls have to be to different numbers. If you call the same number more than once, you will be limited to a maximum of 5 minutes. This is a great service with excellent voice quality and I recommend it highly. It only works from American numbers and I am Canadian, but there are ways which I will explain in a later post. But I love using it for those occasions where I need to make calls to other than North America.

If you have been following this blog you might be interested in seeing some of the worldwide access numbers you can use to call free with your cellphone no matter where you are. You need a cellular plan which allows you to call one or more favourite numbers for free. You then register one or more of these numbers as your favourite(s) and you are all set to make cellular calls for just the small price charged by your voip provider:

For those of you who do not know what I am talking about here, let me explain. Another method of hacking cellphones legally is by using what is known as a callback service. If you have a cellular plan with unlimited incoming calls, you can use this to your advantage. You dial a number, get a busy signal and hang up, so you did not make a call and do not have to pay for any minutes. But the number you called reads your caller id and calls you back, so you receive an incoming call which is free. When you answer, you are prompted to dial the number you wish to call and press the pound sign instead of send. As long as you do not press send, you are still receiving an incoming call and it will be free. If you are interested in this system, just search for "callback services" and you are sure to find one you like. My reason for not using such a service is that I find my system to be more flexible. I am not stuck with one system; if I find a better voip provider I am allowed to change my unlimited number each 30 days. There is a service called the Magic Number which is a slightly more flexible variation on this theme but it still limits the user to one provider and takes away the choice to find a cheaper voip service. On a different note, those of you who like trivia might be interested in knowing that the pound sign # is properly called an octothorpe.


I want to put to rest once and for all, the notion that my hacks are illegal. I am not altering in any way, the service that is sold to me by the cellular provider, namely, one number unlimited from Telus. All I am doing is using a different kind of number from the usual, such as a teenager phoning home etc. I choose to use a number which gives me access to a cheap voip account I have on the internet when I do not have access to a computer. It just so happens that this voip account gives me telephone calls anywhere I want, almost for free. Depending on which country I have a need to call, I can search for just the right voip provider. This type of "hack" is widely practiced by thousands of people all over the internet so it is unlikely that Telus does not know about it. Telus must realize that the people who use this hack are the ones who would never think of using Telus as a provider otherwise. Telus would probably rather have ten dollars per month from a customer than not have the customer at all. Any cellular provider which offers favourite numbers can be used for this but Telus is the best because you only have to pay for the number you need. Thank you Telus!
