This website will let you make unlimited free landline/mobile to landline/mobile calls wherever you are in the world. It works like this:

Say I have a friend in Australia - I go and register his number on that website.
The website gives me a local UK mobile number which automatically forwards to the Australia number.
So to call my friend, I can now call a local UK mobile number.

I checked with my provider, Vodafone, and they said that this mobile number that this website has given me is *included* in my monthly minutes. (fyi, i was given an 07031 number which vodafone said is a standard uk mobile).

So if you have friends/family abroad, this is a great way to use your monthly minutes at no cost :)

Not exactly ideal as you'd have to register ALL you abroad numbers, but still a good deal none-the less.

If someone has a UK mobile on say Virgin network and they live in the UK. And they go abroad to somewhere in Europe on holiday. And I have a UK mobile in the UK.

If i call from my uk mobile in the UK to this uk mobile in europe, would I get charged international rates ? Even tho I am dialing a UK mobile number??

If so, would this service here, help at all ??

This service has nothing to do with your situation.

If you call your friend who is on holiday in Europe, you will only be charged as though it was a local mobile call.

But your friend will be charged roaming fees for receiving the call while in Europe.

Cheers for the help, so is there any way around these roaming charges? How much they cost?

Also what if it was the other way around, if they in Europe called me? WOuld i be charged anything? Would they be charged the uk call cost, and roaming charges?

agreed - its only useful if you have a few friends/family living permanently abroad who you call a lot - then you can register their 4 or 5 numbers and that'll be all you ever need to do.

if you need to call new and different abroad numbers a lot, then it's a bit more long winded because you have to keep registering the new numbers.

This is great if it works...come in just at the right time (O2 has just started charging for 0870 numbers). Will check with O2 CPW to see if it is inclusive in the free minutes...

Spot on - please post back what you find.

I really doubt that 0703 numbers are standard uk mobile numbers. Only a matter of time before all the networks charge for these calls.
sunnyk#13
does anyone have anymore information on free calls abroad from the 07878 555 666 number because I can't find anything on the internet?
natasha8642#14
Just phoned T-Mobile and was told that 0703 numbers are charged at 74p/m and are not inclusive of airtime.
cowboy#15
Ok, update from O2 CPW.

I spoke to a nice chap from CPW customer service on the phone regarding the charges for this number and unfortunately O2 CPW users WILL BE charged 50p per minute for this number. And it will not be coming out from the free minutes.
boonkoh#16
For o2 customers look at: http://www.o2.co.uk/mobilestariffs/tariffs/specialnumbers

070 numbers are charged at 50p/min and are NOT included in your free minutes.

Cheers for that - think I'll be giving it a Grand Canyon sized berth then.
