Hi does anybody know the cheapest way to phone a Cypriot mobile from the UK please. I have looked at the MSE site and ended up totally confused. I am with BT and have their all inclusive calls package. I can't use VOIP or Skype as although I have an internet connection, the person in Cyprus would not have an internet connection. I used to dial using an override number, but since Ofcom changed the rules, I don't understand how to find the cheapest way. Any advice would be welcome please

download the boss revolution app, I have been using for years to make international calls, very good prices and you can top up however much you like

looking at it, it'll cost 1p/min to call a landline #, and 2p/min for mobile to Cyprus, that's very cheap imo?

Skype and voip can be used to make calls to phone numbers and are easy to use. you can top them up and pay go which is good. alternatively your looking for an 0800 service to call they generally use voip hence y they are cheap I'm sure that there is one called rebtel or something like that.

If you have both Android, Google "Duo" is out now. More or less Sykpe/Factetime app using data only, no other costs.

Play Store - Google Duo

For any of the old style access number (landlines) they all normally use 084/085 numbers which now incur a charge of around 10p per minute which is on top of what ever the service charges you, normally a further 2p per minute and sometimes a further "connection fee" before they charge you the 2p per minute.

Hi many thanks for your replies. I will look into them, I am particularly interested in the boss revolution app which I have never heard of. I just have a PAYG UK mobile so data options are probably not good for me, but thanks for the advice I will have a look into them.

Hi Anthony - can you advise me how this works. I had a look and it says you can use WIFI etc. Would the person in Cyprus need an internet connection? Sorry to have to ask, but not sure how it works, yet the reviews for it are good.

The person receiving the call doesn't need any internet connection whatsoever, no matter which option you choose.

The options you get are to call using your wi-fi signal (if your mobile reception is bad), call using your mobile reception (this will use your normal plan minutes, nothing extra) and then data, which I've never used.

As I said, been using the service for a long time now, I top up every other month. If you're calling a large country with different area codes, it'll also tell you how much it's going to cost per minute as you're typing the number in.
