Have you guys seen on http://www.grandcentral.com/ and http://www.jaxtr.com you put in your number, then it calls you then connects you to the person your trying to call. What is the name of this service?

Thanks,
Tom

Looks like some form of 'VOIP' or 'Voice Over Internet Protocol' service. And if it is, the technology isn't new although this implementation of it could be.

Skype is voice over ip (VOIP) which means you use the internet to make phone calls....the click to call systems (if that's even what this is called)....like grandcentral are just "phone number aggregations" (not alligators)...basically they've got a normal phone line phone network somewhere with a bunch of numbers....you give them all the phone numbers you've got (cell, home, office, beach house, etc..) and they give you one phone number...you tell people to call that phone number and it rings all or some of your real phones (depending on how you set up your account)...it's handy if you travel a lot and get a lot of phone calls...
