Hi, I'm Noah, and I'm going to show you how to make phone calls from your computer. All you'll need for this is a headset like this one, and an Internet connection, preferably high-speed. To start making calls, you'll need to download a voice over IP program like Skype. Although Skype is the most well-known, there are hundreds of other alternative programs out there like VoipStunt, for example or VoipWise. Now, once you've chosen the program, downloaded it, and then installed it, you can create an account and either add money or simply use the free call functionality of some of these programs, whether it's either free trial calls at the beginning of your account or calling towards other users of the same voice over IP program. Anyhow, once you're on the dial pad of the program, you can simply enter your number, click the green button, and you're ready to go. Also, make sure that your headset is plugged in and working correctly. To enter a number, just make sure you type plus and the country code before entering the actual number. For example, plus one for the United States, and then the number.
