Updates of Cheap Calls Service

Direct Dial

From the 1st of August the service charge set on some of our access numbers will reduce in cost, some will remain the same, and other will increase

  • Those currently 5ppm and under will reduce.
  • Those 15ppm and over will increase.
  • All other will remain the same.

From the 1st of August we will also be reducing the headline rates to our two most popular destinations. Pakistan and Pakistan-Mobile will reduce from their current rate of 7ppm to 3ppm, and India and India-Mobile will reduce from 3ppm to 1ppm.

The advertised rate for most destinations will change from 1st August as a result of the changes in service charges, and some will see additional changes due to recent changes in cost rates in the market. For detailed rates, please visit: our rates page

Top Up

From the 1st of August we will be making changes to Topup rates to provide improved rates to almost all top destinations. For detailed rates, please visit: Top Up page

Major Rate Changes on 08 Numbers

2015-06-18

Updates of Cheap Calls Service

Due to the requirement of Ofcom, our 08xxx access numbers will be charged with extra service fees from your service provider, from 1st of July, 2015.

From the 1st of July charges to our access numbers will be split into two parts:
• The ‘Access Charge’ – this is how much the customer’s phone company (landline or mobile provider) will charge the customer per minute for making the call
• The ‘Service Charge’ – this is the charge that is set by Just Dial as the provider of the service.

We are sad to make such a change, which means calling used-to-be 1p/min numbers will be charged for 3p/min, plus the access chage from your service provider.

Meanwhile, top up service will not be affected.

Unlimited Service Closing

2013-05-29

Updates of Cheap Calls Service

Sorry we are closing the unlimited service

Apologize:

It has become necessary to cease our Unlimited Service on short code 81020

What will happen?

From 1st June 2013, no new subscriptions will be allowed on the Unlimited Service.

Customers will be able to make calls on their existing subscriptions up to 1st July 2013.

Any alternatives?

Yes we have many good services might fit you, such as: direct calling from landlines, short codes, top up. You can simply search your destination on our home page, or browse the country list to find the best offer!

About 0845 numbers to India

2013-04-19

News on Free International Calls

We are sorry to notify you that India is no longer in our free 0845 list currently, due to increased cost incurred. We are working hard with our service provider, trying to make India free again.

Meanwhile, please try this alternative number: 0844 720 2410. It works 24/7 (including nights and weekends)! The cost is 1p/min plus a 13.9 connection fee charged by BT. That is to say, if you make a 30 minutes call to India, all you need to pay is 30+13.9=43.9p. Your actual cost per minute is 1.4p, nothing more. There is no requirement for the contract type with this number.

Change of Short Code 80041 Tariff

2013-03-06

Calling from mobiles

Dear Top Up customers,

Currently the £3 short code 80041 is billed in two stages; you send a single request and two billed messages are sent in response at £1.50 each.

This approach made sense when Topup service was launched; however it is now appropriate to have a single message response at £3. Therefore we will be updating the tariff for short code 80041 at the start of April 2013.

The Networks do not update at the same time and as a result the tariff change will be on two days; Tuesday 2nd April 2013 and Thursday 4th April 2013.

Tuesday 2nd April 2013 – Everything Everywhere (T-Mobile & Orange), O2 and Three

Thursday 4th April 2013 – Vodafone

After these dates you will recieve just ONE message after top up, and it costs 3 pounds.

Regards,

Talk4longer team

Apologize on the fault of Short Code service

2012-08-06

Updates of Cheap Calls Service

Update(14/08/2012): The overcharge issue of Orange monthly users with Talk4longer short codes has been corrected by the network provider.

Apologize:

We are really sorry for a technical fault from Orange Pay Monthly side with regards to billing the customers for the usage of Talk4longer short codes.

If you were overcharged, could you please keep a copy of your bill as you all would be credited by Orange for the extra charges. We do understand that this might have caused a lot of frustration as some of the amounts are very high but we have contacted Orange and you all will be credit for these amounts by your network provider.

We again apologize for this and thank you for understanding.

Cheap calls from mobiles - how about Thailand?

2011-02-18

Cheap Calls Q & A

Q: I have a contract with orange and would like to call Thailand and have three questions:

1. after toping up my £3 do I get a text message when I am nearing the end of my credit? if not how can I check my remain balance?. Is the £3 credit immediately and will I receive a text to this fact.

2. 0207 124 6666 access number is included in my orange contract minutes so will be free to call, however is there a connection/surcharge charge for calling Thailand.

3. by using the above number how will I be billed for my call, I am being a little over caution as I don't want orange to charge me their inflated rates for calling Thailand and want to make sure that I am using your service correctly.

A:

1.You can always check your balance, by dialing the 0207 124 6666  access number.
2.The connection charge is one minute calling fee, which is 1p for calling Thailand. That is to say, if you make a 30-minute call to Thailand, the total cost is 31 pence.
3.For each topup, there will be a £3 charge record on your mobile phone bill, shown as 'premium text'. The £3 will be added to your credit, and will be deducted at 1p/min when you make calls to Thailand.

To ensure not being charged by Orange, please follow our recommeded procedure:
1.call the 020 access number;
2.with the prompt, input the country code(0066 for Thailand), and your destination number (do NOT press the 'Call' button again); 3.wait, you will be connected.

You can also take a look of our unimited service, as Thailand is on our list:

If I can provide you with any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Top up amount incorrect?

2010-06-03

Cheap Calls Q & A

Q:

Hi, I'm top-up my mobile three time and you give my only half minit. You take it 3£ from my credit and you operator tell my just 1.5£. What happened?

A:

For every top up text you send to 80041, we will send two confirmation messages back to you. Each message will add £1.5 credits and cost you £1.5 accordingly. If the message is lost during high traffic, which means you did not receive it, you will not be charged and we will not add the £1.5 either.

For your case, as you only have £1.5 added into your account, it is highly possible that you merely received one of our two confirmation messages – you will only be charged £1.5 and we just add the £1.5 to your top up credit. If you found that you did receive both of the two confirmation texts and were charged £3, please send us a copy of bill showing such a charge and we will add the £1.5. The bill usually has items like two ‘premium texts’ from 80041 with £1.5 each. Like this:

Premium Text Messages
            Received DateTime Origin Shortcode Shortcode Description Destination Amount (£)Allowance
            11/07/05 12:10: 80041 Premium Text 0780241xxxx 1.277
            11/07/05 12:10:43 80041 Premium Text 078024xxxx 1.277

 

What if top up failed?

2010-05-31

Cheap Calls Q & A

Q:

I have done the top up as your webpage said, but could not make international calls. Why?

A:

First, please ensure you have followed the top up procedure listed on our top up cheap calls page. If you still have problems, could you check with this:

  1. Did you send the exact word ‘talk4longer’ to 80041?
  2. Text us the message TALK4LONGER to 80041 for £3( or 80550 for £5).
  3. Did you receive the confirmation messages from us (there should be two texts)?
  4. Does you mobile have the enough credits, if it is a pay and go mobile? Your mobile credits shoud be more than three pounds left.
  5. You can always check if you have made successful top up, by calling 02071246666.

And you can contact us if the problem remains.

Vodafone offers cheap mobile calls for World Cup travelers

2010-05-28

Calling from mobiles

Twitpic your World Cup journey and avoid a huge bill waiting for you when you get home

Vodafone is helping customers heading to South Africa for the World Cup to call home from mobile phones at normal UK rates.

The Vodafone Passport promotion which runs during June and July, offers customers after paying a 75p connection charge, to talk to friends back in the UK without incurring the usual expensive charges ringing from abroad.

If you are on a contract which includes minutes, or alternatively a pay as you go customer with Vodafone Freedom Pack minutes, the cost of your calls will be deducted from these. Texting home will also cost just 11p.

 

If you are more interested in documenting your time in South Africa via Twitter or Facebook, Vodafone customers will have to pay £3 per MB for the first 5MBS as the mobile network claims to offer the most valuable international data roaming rates. If a flight to South Africa is not on the agenda (or in the budget), surfing the net in Europe will cost you £1 per MB for the first 5MBs.

 

Ensuring you don't go over your phone call budget, Vodafone is also offering a free real-time text alert which will notify users when they are nearing the end of their data allowance.

 

The international roaming rates start from June 15th, two days after England's opening game. Vodafone customers can get saving by calling 555.

Cheap VOIP Calls from mobile

2010-05-03

Calling from mobiles

Earlier today Vonage announced the availability of Vonage Mobile for the Android smartphoneplatform. Currently the app works only on AT&T and T-Mobile USA Android smartphones, but the company has said that support for CDMA devices, such as those offered by Verizon and Sprint, is in the works.

The stated purpose for the application is to offer consumers access to low cost Vonage international calling rates. To partake in those, Vonage offers both an unlimited plan for $24.99/mo (to 60 countries) and a pay per use plan that requires a credit card on file, but has no up front costs. Rates for the pay per use plan vary greatly. For example, calls to Germany are charged at a per minute rate of US$.02 to land lines and $.25 to mobile phones. Antarctica, on the other hand, costs $1.88 per minute to land lines and $2.18 to mobile phones - for those of you with family in the very, very deep south. A casual comparison of rates suggests that Google Voice's international service might be a bit cheaper for many users, but there is something that Vonage Mobile offers that Google Voice does not.

That something is true VoIP calling over Wi-Fi that can be used for placing free calls to anywhere in the U.S. as well as for calling those international destinations with one of the company's plans.

Like Google Voice, Vonage Mobile integrates tightly into an Android smartphone and can be configured to take over for outbound calling tasks automatically. You dial a number or place a call from a contact normally, but Vonage Mobile jumps in and places the call when it meets the requirements that you define in its settings. Users have options to use Vonage Mobile only for paid international calls, for both free domestic Wi-Fi and paid international calls, or to have the app ask each time. The free U.S. calling offers users a great way to save the minutes in their T-Mobile USA or AT&T calling plans.

I configured Vonage Mobile to identify itself by using my Google Voice phone number, which it verified first by calling and asking me for the PIN code I had defined when I created the account within the app. Calls placed over Vonage take longer to connect than normal calls, but that seems a small price to pay for what will work out to be free or discounted calling from home and office for many users.

The application is not without its faults, though. It appears to have no support for landscape orientation, for one. This made setting up the app with my Motorola CLIQ's keyboard exposed a bit more difficult. But apart from that, and the app's heavy reliance on the web browser for secondary information, the important stuff - like call quality - seemed to be solid.

Vonage Mobile for Android can be found in the Android Market as of today. Vonage Mobile is already available for Apple and BlackBerry smartphones.

Cheap international calls could be boost by mobile broadband

2010-04-26

Calling from mobiles

Use of mobileIP telephony solutions in the UK could be boosted after it was reported that it is one of the cheapest countries in the world for mobile broadband.

The UK, France and India have among the world's lowest prices for mobile broadband plans, according to figures published by ABI Research, a technology market research company. The low-cost of mobile broadband access in the UK could make it cheaper to make telephone calls using VoIP solutions via netbooks, tablet computers, smartphones and other mobile internet devices.

However, according to Bhavya Khanna, analyst at ABI Research, widespread use of data dongles in developed markets has "created strains on mobile networks". This could see "data plans change to throttle data consumption", with operators in some countries already limiting data to 5GB or 3GB per month, even for their most expensive plans. Jake Saunders, vice president of forecasting at ABI Research, added that overage charges for data plans are confusing consumers and that operators should simplify overage costs and educate customers to "encourage uptake of such services". Applications such as VoIP phones are increasingly powering the growth of the mobile broadband market, Allot Communications said earlier in the year.

Cheap Calls Q & A

Q: I have both an orange contract phone and an orange pay as you go phone. I regularly call noth the USA and Bulgaria for several hours a week. What would be the best way for me to reduce this?

A: For your case, you can either choose Top Up service (contract mobiles only) and Short Code servce. The top up service is generally cheaper, but needs inclusive minutes to call and you have to top up first. The Short Code service is more easier to use, no top up or inclusive mintues needed, but might be more expensive.

I will list the prices of these two destinations here for your comparision:

Why Talk4longer's international calls(0845) can be free?

2010-04-19

News on Free International Calls

How we get paid:

The free 0845 minutes that customers received are acctually covered by their monthly contract payment. For example, if you have a 20 pounds monthly contract with 1000 minutes of 0845 calling, you cost per minute will be 20/1000=0.02 pound (2 pences) for making calls to 0845 numbers. We will share this 2p/min payment with BT, to cover our costs of running internaional calling service.

Why only 8am-6pm, weekdays?

BT have different revenue sharing plans, according to different time intervals. Only with the sharing plan between 8am-6pm, Monday to Friday, we can make enough money to sustain this service. If you are calling out of this time interval, the service will be closed.

And please remember that BT keep the right of charge this number, and they might if it is considered as a indirect calling service. The charge will be 2p/min if it happens. So when you are using this 0845 servce, please keep an eye with your bill. If you found yourself charged, please notify us – and we will issue a new access number for you.

Calling-card giant Lycatel investigated by Ofcom

2010-04-12

News on Free International Calls

Ofcom, the telecoms regulator, has launched an investigation into Lycatel to gauge whether the calling-card provider is infringing consumer protection laws.

The regulator has initiated the inquiry after complaints from Consumer Direct and the Trading Standards Office.

It will determine whether Lycatel is providing its customers with clear and up-to-date information about its terms and conditions.

If the company is found to have overcharged its customers and failed to comply with regulatory guidelines, Ofcom could fine the company up to 10 per cent of its revenue.

The company is one of the largest players in the international calling-card market and has five million customers worldwide.

It competes with the likes of Lebara in targeting immigrant and ethnic communities with cheap international calls.

Despite the rise of services such as Skype and O2's Jajah that offer cheap international call rates, the international calling-card market in the UK is still vibrant with 150 million cards sold every year and 3.7 million customers.

However, the calling card market has historically offered poor customer service, and people buying cards with a value of between £5 and £20 have often complained that they do not receive the value they expected.

Ofcom cracked down on the industry in 2005 to weed out companies that routinely took advantage of customers.

Virgin Media is shaking up the UK mobile phone market this April with the launch of a range of incredibly compelling tariffs designed to offer consumers simple choices and great value in a market traditionally littered with complicated options. Leveraging its unique ‘quadplay’ offering, the new range of tariffs come with exclusive benefits for existing Virgin Media customers with fixed line services, as well as exceptional bundle savings – it’s never been a better time to be a Virgin Media customer. Graeme Oxby, executive director of mobile and home phone at Virgin Media said: “This move kicks off the next phase of Virgin Media's successful quadplay strategy. Our new tariffs and bundles for mobiles and landlines have been built on the principles of simplicity and flexibility, with a revolutionary approach to maximise bundling benefits for customers - calling between friends and family members has never been such good value, with free calls between Virgin home phones and Virgin Mobiles, exciting new handsets and market leading tariffs for mobile users.” Pay Monthly and SIM Only For customers looking to benefit from easy to manage contract options, the new monthly tariffs from Virgin Media follow a simple pricing pattern making it easier to work to a monthly budget. From just £10 per month with free phones on 18 and 24 month contracts, the new tariffs will allow customers the flexibility of reducing their monthly cost by £5 by choosing a longer contract, or conversely choose a shorter contract for an extra £5 per month. With Virgin Media now stocking some of hottest handsets on the market for free on compelling monthly contracts, customers can get a great phone with unlimited texts and unlimited web access complete with unlimited calls to other Virgin Mobiles for just £25 per month on a 24 month contract.

With all the above options, Virgin Media customers who already have fixed line services will be able to take advantage of exclusive bundle benefits and savings. On Pay Monthly tariffs, Virgin Media customers can get most of our handsets on tariffs that are £5 cheaper per month than the general public can get them on or they can choose a better handset for the same monthly cost. Furthermore, in addition to the usual inclusive texts and minutes, Virgin Media customers exclusively receive inclusive talk time to other Virgin Mobile phones on tariffs from £10 per month, with unlimited Virgin Mobile to Virgin Mobile calls on selected Pay Monthly and SIM Only tariffs from £15 per month.

“Nokia adds Skype to Ovi store,” says an Engadget post being circulated this morning. Americans are in for a disappointment: Ovi doesn’t offer Skype to customers on AT&T and other U.S. networks. It doesn’t show up in the store for Americans. The Ovi website returns the error,”Sorry, this item is not available for your country.”

There’s a workaround we’ve tested at VentureBeat: Go to Ovi and install the free Fring client. After you register a username and password with Fring, it will prompt you to configure several add-ons, one of which is Skype.

Give Fring your Skype username and password. It will connect to Skype and show your contacts. When you press the telephone-handset icon to make a call, Fring will prompt you with four options: Fring call, Video call, Cellular call, and SkypeOut call.

SkypeOut will let you dial any phone in the world. You need to include a plus sign and the country code, such as +4152719629 for U.S. numbers. Skype’s super-cheap rates apply — 2.5 cents per minute or about $1.50 an hour for the continental USA. If you don’t have unlimited minutes on your plan, Skype via Fring is a cheap way to make voice calls once you’ve used up your plan’s monthly allotment.

The one big shortcoming of Internet calls is the two-way delay of up to several seconds between the time one party speaks, and the time the other party hears it. This delay prevents fast, real-time conversations where both people talk at the same time. You end up trading sentences back and forth, the way cops and cab drivers do with their dispatchers. A radio talk show producer told me it drives them crazy because of the dead air space between the host’s question to a caller, and the caller’s reply. You get what you pay for.

Free calls in Pakistan regulated

2010-03-15

News on Free International Calls

By Muhammad Yasir

KARACHI: Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) is mulling to rationalise the cost mechanism of toll-free numbers through calls made by mobile phones services.

The regulator body has sought stakeholders’ opinion in order to establish framework pricing mechanism on calls made to local and international toll-free numbers through mobile telephony services of various operators.

A toll-free or free-of-cost calling number is a special telephone number, in which the receiver of the calls is usually charged the cost of the calls by the telephone operator, instead of callers.

The cost of calls to the call receiver may be based on factors such as the amount of usage of number, the cost of the trunk lines to the facility, and possibly a monthly flat rate service charge.

In commercial sector, different companies utilise toll-free number frequently in order to facilitate their customers particularly for complaints of services, booking orders and different inquiries.

Presently, mobile phone operators charge airtime from their users for calling toll-free. On the other hand, the toll-free number is free of cost by landline telephony services. In Pakistan, the Authority allocates toll-free numbers (starting with 0800) to applicants for facilitation of callers in accordance with the provisions of Pakistan Telecommunication (Re-organization) Act, 1996 and ‘Numbering Allocation &

Administration Regulations, 2005’. As far as the charging of toll-free numbers is concerned, PTA approved Reference Interconnected Offer (RIO) of fixed-line operators in 2004. Accordingly, the fixed-line operator that originates calls will be paid a standard interconnection charge as per the charges outlined in RIO based on time of day as well as distance from the calling party to the point of interconnection with the operator connected to the free phone service provider.

However, if there is no point of interconnection between the operator originating a call and the operator terminating a call, then a third-party operator may carry the call between the originating and terminating operators against which the third party operator will receive a transit charges depending on time of day and distance between the two points of interconnection with the originating and terminating operators respectively. As per the RIO, the terminating operators are obliged to pay originating operators interconnect charges for all calls whether the billed revenue is collected from free phone providers or not. Whereas, the pricing mechanism remains operative for fixed-line telephony operator.

In March 2006, the mobile phone operators were allowed for first time the access of toll-free numbers in the country as the numbers of cellular phone services were on the rise. There was not inter-operator charge between respective mobile operator and free phone service provider. However, mobile operators were allowed to charge their users any reasonable tariff for calls made to free phone numbers.

While, Last year, Telecom Consumers’ Forum and other business entities raised an issue of call charges of mobile phone operators on toll-free numbers.

Telecom experts see the possibility of toll-free calls, originated from mobile networks, free of cost to end-users while mobile phone operators could be compensated the same on account of usage of their networks.

In this regard, the services providers will pay origination charges equivalent to mobile termination rate (i.e. existing Rs 0.90 per minute) to mobile operators against toll-free calls originated from cellular phone companies. The cellular mobile operators will not be allowed to levy any charge from their subscribers, who can enjoy free calling to toll-free numbers.

However, the said regime will increase the costs of service providers that may rationalise the charging from toll-free users to cover their costs. The risk of bad debts will primarily be borne by service providers and they will ensure full payment of dues to cellular phone operators irrespective of the fact whether they receive their dues from users of toll-free numbers or not.

On the other hand, the cost of mobile termination rate will be borne by users of toll-free numbers instead of service providers as another option. The rationale behind this approach is to facilitate the end-users by making calls to toll-free numbers free of cost (whether dialed from fixed-line or mobile networks) and to put the extra financial burden on the beneficiaries i.e. users of toll-free numbers, any business entity or any company’s customers call center.

It has been observed that most of the countries do not allow mobile users to access toll-free numbers and in the countries where access is available from mobile phones, the mobile operators charge airtime tariffs from their users for making calls on toll-free numbers.

Guide published for cheaper mobile deals

2010-03-12

Calling from mobiles

Bad news for mobile network providers, good news for users - Ofcom recently published a mobile phone guide to help customers switching calling plans, which could help them to make a lot of savings.

Ofcom claimed that, by tailoring a mobile deal more suitable to his/her needs, a typical customer might save £12.45 a month or around £150 a year. This is possible because many users signed contacts with excess inclusive minutes and other features which hardly used - and paid extra money for them.

BillMonitor, a website accredited by Ofcom for price comparison, offers online bill tracking where consumers supply their online billing account details and the website will analyses these bills for a tailored recommendation.

A consumer can also enter minutes and texts overseas calls, picture messaging and data usage for a one-off tariff search, to find the best calling plan and make the most savings.

These functions, quite similar to Talk4longer's price comparison for cheaper international calls, are designed to help customers to expense less on buying mobiles and making calls from mobiles.

Cheap calls from mobiles - any differences?

2010-03-10

Calling from mobiles

Q: Is there any difference between your two services for making cheap international calls from mobiles?

A: Talk4longer currently offer two services for mobile users making international calls:

1. Short Code;

2. Top Up.

The short code service works best for Orange, T-mobile and 3 mobile users. It is quite easy to use - all you need to do is:

1. Find the short code here by searching the name of your country;

2. Then dial the code from your mobile and input your destination number - that is all.

There is no top up or account opening needed, and no requirements for inclusive minutes - so it works for Pay and Go mobile too!

For users of other mobile networks such as O2 or Vodafone, Top Up service is the best option. It is cheap, but needs inclusive minutes to work. And you will need to top up first.

Q and A 24 On Cheap Calls Service

2010-02-23

Cheap Calls Q & A

Q: I am a BT landline customer and my boyfriend has gone to Zambia for 3 months. He has an O2 UK mobile phone, his normal UK number works to dial, but on his screen it says he is on a Zambian network (for signal and networcking purposes) it is not a Zambian handset or SIM card. If I wanted to use your cheap rates phone numbers, would I use the "UK landline > zambia, mobile" number? I used it last night to call him and it dialled, the 10p/min rate. But does that mean it would charge me 10p, or could it charge differently because it's an english mobile number? Also, would that charge him anything for receiving the call? Another question is that I am an 02 UK mobile customer too, and I am on a contract tarrif that gives me 600 free minutes a month to any UK landline or mobile within the UK, but to call him it is 89p a minute because he's out the country. I pay a set amount every month on my contract, but if I wanted to use one of your cheap rates mobile top-up services, how would it affect my mobile phone bill? It says inclusive minutes needed, but if I purchased, say, a £3 top-up to call him mobile to mobile, would it affect my contract or would it simply add £3 onto my phone bill? I was told by O2 customer services to ask you this question because they don't have that information about the top-up cards.cheap calls to Zambia

A: One thing can be sure is that you will only be charged at 10p/min for using our 0871 570 2652 access number from your BT landline, regardless of your destinations. For your boyfriend, his cost will be as same as the charge of receiving a local call from a Zambian number, which is decided by his Zambian network provider. If you made the top up, you will receive a £3 credit, and we will charge you the £3 on your bill. The inclusive minutes are needed when your are dialing the 0207 access number. I personally would not suggest you to use the top up service from your mobile, as the rate is higher than 10p from landline, and you might be charged at an extra for calling a roaming number.

Q and A 22 on Connection Charge of Cheap Calls Service

2010-02-22

Cheap Calls Q & A

Q: what is connection charge when calling cyprus from mobile and you say you will found up call to nearest penny so does 1.5p become 2p?

A: The connection fee is equal to the pence per minute rate (up to a maximum of 15 pence) for the relevant country. For your case, the connection fee will be 1.5p. We still count the rates as 1.5p per minute, and only your total cost will be rounded up. For example: If you make a 9 minutes call to Cyprus, your cost will be 1.5p connection fee + 1.5p*9=15p. And you will be charged for 15p accordingly. If you make a 10 minutes call to Cyprus, your cost will be 1.5p connection fee + 1.5p*10=16.5p. But you will be charged for 17p, as the final amount being rounded up.

2010-02-18

Cheap Calls Q & A

Q: To phone the USA at 2p/min your website says I must dial via the number 0844 838 2410. Does this mean I have to pay the 0844 charge on top of the 2p/min? If so, how much is it to use 0844?

A: For most UK landlines (i.e. BT), calling 0844 838 2410 costs 2p/min, which is collected by your network provider. And we will share this revenue with them, to cover our costs. WE DO NOT CHARGE YOU OTHER THAN THAT. There is also a set-up fee charged by BT (9.05p for every call). That is to say, if you make a 30 minutes call to USA, all you need to pay is 30*2 +9.05=69.05p.

1.Simply dial 291072 and press 'call';

Q: i hold Monthly contract for any time(£35 per month) and i have a contract with o2 from 2006.I would like to know if i can use 0844 570 2410 to call India for free from my inclusive minutes. Thanks

A:

Unfortuately O2 stopped supporting our 0844 number for free calls. What I suggest is you can use our Top Up service as an alternative cheap international calls service: it costs just 3p per minute for calling India.

Q: hi i am very interested in using your cheap international calls service does your top up expire at any time for example if i top up 3 pounds does it expire at a certain time?

A: If you have not made any calling through our service for 90 days, your account might be zeroed or cancelled. That is to say, if your last calling is within 90 days, you credit will never be expired.
