    Hi Everyone

    Looking for a free and easy way to allow customers to call my cellphone from my web site. One or both of these solutions would be ideal:

    1. User clicks on button and enters their phone number which calls me upon submission.

    and/or

    2. User uses VOIP to call my cellphone.

    That’s all I need. I don’t need or want chat, video or any other way to connect with a customer. And I don’t need any fancy data collection and report system.

    I have tried all of these that I have found wanting for various reasons.

    Browser Call
    Call From Web
    Click To Call Button
    Free Call

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I have always just embedded Google Voice in a website. It’s free, easily forward the number to ring in a number of locations by time/date (or not ring after 6pm). Here is a YouTube video:

    Hey Dawn

    Thanks for this. I don’t think I was clear or maybe I don’t understand the video explanation.

    I don’t need an audio playback.

    I was looking for a way for user to call my cell using a web interface. I know something is out there that will do that but I am looking for a free solution. I remember seeing this a few years back but they are either gone or are now a commercial operation.

    Do you care if your phone number is public and posted on your site?

    It is ok if my number were publicly published.

    Here is an easier tutorial:

    How to Add a Google Call Widget to Any Web Page

    You probably don’t want your number to show on the phone because some robot could call you day and night. Your choice. Forward the number from 9am-6pm (or whatever) to your phone of choice, and after 6pm and weekends have messages go to voice mail or text. Easy peasy.
