Free Phone Calls with Windows Live Messenger

Microsoft LifeCam ZX 6000Today my dad and I tested out my new Microsoft LifeCam ZX 6000 (pictured). He is in Longview, WA, USA and I am in London; it worked great. The ZX 6000 is Microsoft’s fancy name for a wireless headset that easily works with Windows Live Messenger.

You can download the latest version of Messenger from  http://messenger.live.com/. In the USA, you can buy the headset online here.

Technically, this wasn’t a phone call. It was a PC-to-PC "call" commonly referred to as a VoIP call, which is Voice Over IP (Internet Protocol). See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VoIP for more information about VoIP. Messenger can make calls to regular phones too and the little headset would work the same then too. However, that costs a few cents per minute. See http://get.live.com/messenger/WinLiveCallDevices for more information on the other ways you can call with Messenger.

Enough about our products (I work at Microsoft). It’s time to grab some fish & chips, a pint, and enjoy the sunshine in London.
