Yes you can call landlines and mobile phones. But i only think it's until the end of this year for free until they charge 2 cents a minute which is their normal rate. There are no hidden costs that i am aware of

if you think about it, it really isnt all that bad. 15 bucks a year for unlimited calls, but long distance is a different story ie to europe/asia/africa/australia.
