Vonage is giving free calls to Haiti for both U.S. customers and non-customers. Dial 800-809-2503.


So free calls for anyone in the US, however it make take some time to get through. Good luck if you have some one you need to try and contact.

This is subject to end at any time.

    If you're a T-Mobile customer with a friend or loved one in Haiti, here's a bit of good news: T-Mobile will waive the tolls associated with international calls to the beleaguered country until Jan. 31, and retroactive to the date of the quake, or Jan. 12.

      Two more....

      Following T-Mobile's footsteps, Cricket announced that it, too, is offering its voice customers free, unlimited calling to Haiti through midnight Eastern Standard Time on Friday, January 22, 2010.

      Stanacard, a leader in low-cost international calling, has donated 60,000 minutes of free calls to Haiti, in response to the humanitarian crisis following this week’s earthquake. The calls are available to existing and new customers by visiting stanacard.com.

      Offers from Skype & Google Voice....

      Google, Skype Offer Free Haiti Calls - Can Anybody Answer?
      http://www.readwriteweb.com/ar.....nybody.php

      Google announced that it will offer free calls to Haiti through Google Voice to help connect Haitians with their families in other locations. The company's announcement follows on the heels of Skype's announcement that it would be emailing vouchers for $2 of Skype credit to its users in Haiti.

      However, a United Nations Foundation worker told us that the communication systems in Haiti were essentially unusable. It appears that the two companies have just joined the category of "awfully nice, generous, but somewhat impractical" ideas.
