Your first month's invoice will be a pro rata amount of your chosen plan based on the date your service is activated until the end of that month. Your call inclusions will also be based on the same pro rata calculation. Your second and subsequent monthly charge will be a full month charge as well as full month call inclusion.

Q. What is the benefit of opening 2 TALKSCAPE™ VoIP accounts?

A. The only thing better than one TALKSCAPE™ VoIP account is 2 TALKSCAPE™ VoIP accounts!!! No matter how long you talk for and no matter where in the world both parties are, the call is absolutely FREE! The reason that we are able to do this is because both parties are on our network and so the call never needs to touch the telephone companies. Therefore, as we are not billed by them, we in turn don't charge you a cent!
