I'm not sure of the technical feasibility of using a modem with Jaxtr,
but operationally, this is how Jaxtr works.


Upon signup you receive 100 credits and each call to your designated
phone number costs 'x' number of credits per minute (depending on where
your phone number is located). Once credits are used up, calls
automatically go to voicemail.


There are 3 ways to get additional credits.


1. Receive 100 credits every month
2. For every user you refer, you receive an additional 20 credits
(limited time only)
3. Contact them to ask about earning or purchasing more credits


Again, this is all moot if it doesn't work technically.

There are a couple new web 2.0 apps that allow you to dial your phone
number from a local account. It is intended for people to not have to
give their real phone number out on myspace but has a nice added benefit
of being able to make long distance calls as local calls, even
internationally. We tried this with Skype, and it didn't' work.
However, this seems to rout the call phone to phone


Benny and Ben:

Please look into this with regard to the modem pool. I would like an
update on this by Friday. In general, I want to know if we can get dial
up accounts in different states and countries. Jay will be back
tomorrow and might be able to flesh out a better test.


Ty and Ivan: feel free to put in your 2 cents. If anyone knows of
anything similar, reply to all.


Steve is still out for 2 weeks.
