TL;DR: I want off Android, and I’m not getting on iOS - Skip to the lower part for my qeustion
Quick history: I’m on Android (OnePlus 5T) and I don’t like it. I’ve had this phone for two years, give
I had various Windows phones for years before that, but got off when they decided to kill the effort.
My only other Android experience was a Galaxy Note II, and it’s the reason I decided to go to Windows Mobile in the first place.
I don’t use any Google services (not talking about a complete block of all Google infrastructure, I just don’t use YouTube, Gmail, Google Search, etc), and I only have a Gmail account because of my phone.
I’ve been intending to get off Android, but for personal reasons I won’t touch an Apple product ever again. This leaves me with pretty much no options, and yes, this is my own fault.
My actual question
Does anyone have a strong recommendation for VoIP software that’ll work on Windows 10 ARM on the Surface Pro X?
I would like to be able to make and receive calls from a regular landline or cell phone without any special software on their end.
I have a wireless bluetooth headset I can use for ‘talking on the phone’, but don’t use the telephony capabilities of my current phone except for instances where I call a dentist or some such.
I would prefer a free option, but I"ll take cheap if it’s better (or if free does’t exist).
My current plan was to just use Skype, but I’ve never actually used Skype to make a call of any sort, and I’m not sure of what all it’s capabilities are, or if it’ll work for what I’m wanting.
Thanks in advance to anyone who has suggestions!
