Call India for 1c a min from Reliance call VOIP

The same folks who shaked up the calling card industry for calls to India have yet again come out with a new plan which allows calling to India for just 1c using your computer.
Currently I still have some balance in my http://diamondcard.us/ account .But as soon as I finish using up that balance I will be sure to try out Reliance  iCall @ http://relianceicall.com/

Yahoo messenger timesout on 30 min for toll free numbers

So I have been bitten by the softphone bug .In any case I have become a very heavy user of VOIP for all my conference calls(trust me I have lot of calls for my job).
So I used Yahoo messenger for a couple of months  as the toll free(800 numbers) with various other VOIP providers were very flaky.
Call quality for  calls with yahoo messenger is excellent .
The only problem I have found with yahoo messenger for toll free numbers is that after every 30 mins the calls get disconnected.
I have the yahoo messenger ver 9.0 so i don't knowi if they have fixed this issue in 10.0 or this forced 30 mins disconnect is as designed maybe due to secutiry issue.
