The easiest and FREE way to find an answer to your question is to install Skype and connect with someone else who has Skype.
You can purchase a phone number from Skype and for about $.09 call any other phone number. You can also purchase a year of
using the phone number and a year of calling for about $60.00. In the USA there would be no extra charge calling Canada and I think
I've used Skype on a portable phone with owns modem for many years but Microsoft killed it this month. So, I am now using Skype on
Linux getting sound from my external speakers and a head set microphone hanging on a nail...works like a speaker phone. Excellent
voice quality on all setups.
EDIT: Meant to add that Skype on Macs and Linux are treated like step children. Works really well on Windows 10 phones, Windows OS and
Android. The most recent (last week) update for my Skype on Ubuntu caused a problem...can't answer a call fast enough and doesn't go to
voice mail like before the update. Maybe in another 3 or 4 years Microsoft will fix that...maybe not.
If you are not interested in purchasing a phone number then there are other programs that work well for voice and video messaging.
