LiveOffice free conference calling


LiveOffice free conference calling

The New York Times’ tech columnist David Pogue raves about Live Office, a free conference call service which gives you a private phone number and passcode when you register on their site.

Give it out to your fellow conferees, everyone calls the number - at any time, no reservations required - and you’re conferring. Pogue says:
The sound is great, you can yammer on for up to six hours per call, and there are a million cool features. My favorite: at any time, you can press 5* to begin recording the conference. An hour later, you’ll find an MP3 file of the conference call, all tidily wrapped up and waiting for you on the Web site.
The call-in number probably won’t be in your area code, so long distance charges do apply (alas, not totally free), but a toll-free number only costs $.04/minute - a better deal than previously-mentioned FreeConference, which only allows up to 25 people, and is a dime a minute for a toll free number. ­ Gina Trapani
