YiXin offers free calls and SMS to China

You may call any phone number, cell or landline, as long as you have an Android or iOS device with an Internet connection (WiFi or 3G). Download the app here.

It is a little tricky to place a call though. First, you need to add the phone # into your phone's contacts, in the International format such as "+862161416222". Don't use "00862161416222", "862161416222" or "02161416222" etc.

Then open the Yixin app, log in, settings, tools, International roaming call or free SMS. Then you can pick up a # to call or text.

The only limit is 60 minutes per month. Other than that, as long as your phone's IP is not recognized as from China, you can call from anywhere for free.

Abstract in Chinese:



  1. Most VOIP suppliers consequently charge a level rate for nearby and national calls (more often than not 5 pennies). Calling mobiles for the most part brings about expense per a moment or now and then a second. 0800

  2. Internet phone services are the first option that you will have to save on your phone bills. With this type of service, you will not only get free calls to those phone numbers that also use the same service, but the calls that you make to non members are much less than your traditional phone service. You will have to download the software and buy a compatible phone, but after that the phone bills will go down in a very significant way. 0800
