    Are you PAYG or on a contract? Surely it's easier to just call them using your mobile. Can't think of any apps that will let you call landlines for free... There's Facetime, Viber, Skype, etc to call another mobile.. but they need the app installed to be able to call you or receive calls.

    Surely the easiest way is to borrow a friends phone? Or add minutes to your phone.

    Let's clear this up.

    My landline has been cut since the bills too high.

    I have no credit on my mobile.

    I want to make a call through my PC because the deal is virgin has still allowed me to have internet but not a phone line.

    Every VOIP app needs you to put credit on it but I have no money and don't mind it being charged to my bill like whatsapp does.

    You're asking for completely free phone calls, which don't exist - Viber Out and Skype are both 2p a minute to UK landlines which is probably the cheapest option. Or if you're not with Three already get a pay as you go sim from them - 3p a minute calls.
