Hallo, Guys! I need some help. I have a computer running Windows 7 Professional. To connect to the internet, I normally use a modem provided by the call companies. I would like to know how to make calls from a USB modem without having to use a mobile phone for that matter. Please help.
How do I make a call from USB modem?
Hi Dibri Avery,
I have read the query that you have expressed. Some USB modems support voice call feature. It means that you have the option of calling phone numbers using your existing number. Moreover sms, mms and video calls are also included.
If you do not have a voice call feature on your USB modem you can still explore many other methods to call from your computer.
Using programs such as Skype and MSN Messenger enables you to call landline numbers. There is an advantage that local and international calls are usually cheaper using these applications. If your friends use similar applications then you will be able to call them using just your internet plan.
If you have a Google Account, the option of Google Voice gives you a free number and free calls to USA and Canada. The link for Google Voice is
However, please note that you would require an external mic to make the calls. If you already use a laptop, you can use the modem to make and receive calls with the inbuilt mic. It is usually a good investment if you buy a good quality headphone.
I hope the solution is helpful for you.
