Free international calls to any country in the world

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.

i have a sick feeling that tmobile uk will charge me for calling this 070 number whatever the case. stupid network:x

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.
#12
I really doubt that 0703 numbers are standard uk mobile numbers. Only a matter of time before all the networks charge for these calls.
#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?
#14
Just phoned T-Mobile and was told that 0703 numbers are charged at 74p/m and are not inclusive of airtime.
#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.
#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.

just checked with orange and they charge 55p a minute and not part on inc minutes :(
#21
Just spoke to t-mobile and the lady said it would cost about 20p per minute as i am on a flext price plan
#22
Please be aware. You WILL be charged on all networks. Higher than your normal call rates. It is definately a personal number.

070** are personal numbers and usually charged 35p to 90p on networks.

this is quite similar to a company called rebtel which do this but they give you a geographical landline i.e. 020, 0113 etc. but this requires an account with a deposit but the rates are cheap they work out at 1p a minute and calling to some countries are even free!. btw if you do sign up to rebtel can you please let me know as i think i get some free minutes for introducing new customers to them

I googled for the company and found their website here: http://www.rebtel.com/en/Home/

It's not quite the same...This one is more like VOIP since you have to pay 1p/min for it while at the same time, using up your mobile free minutes as well. Might as well use VoIP directly and save the free minutes.
#31
A similar deal is available with Planet Talk, I've used them for years to ring my "rellies" in Oz - 3p a minute to a landline, 20p to a mobile (other deals available too) and they are very good. Unfortunately, Virgin mobile won't let you use your free minutes to ring the access number, but other providers do. They are going to look into it as I threatened to leave......
#32
Please don't be fooled, 0703 no's are special numbers and are charged at higher than normal rates. I called up vodafone(contract phones), and they have confirmed it.

No confirmation on whether it will work on O2/O2 CPW users. Can anyone confirm this with O2 or CPW?
#35
07978555666 no. is presently not being charged by O2, if used from the inclusive cross net minutes.
#36
wow ok, i had no idea ... i wonder why vodafone told me it was included when i called them ! i guess the guy had no idea :(
#37
Not exaclty free by the looks of the replys here!!

Could end up prove being rather costly even at 20p p min a 60 min call would cost you £12!

For those looking for a FIXED monthly cost to call abroad, maybe vonage is more up your street?

For £7.99 a month you can ....

Enjoy unlimited calls to the US and Canada (including mobiles), as well as Ireland, Spain, France, Italy. Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Portugal, Greece, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Belgium.

Phoning over the internet is as simple as sending an email. So there's no fuss and no difference in cost between calling locally, nationally or internationally.
[SIZE=2]ONE off set up costs ....[/SIZE]

Line Activation Fee = £9.99
Standard Delivery Fee = £8.99

= £18.98!

Ideal if you call abroad a lot!!

If you have Sky TV, it is worth taking out the £5 p/month Sky Talk, IMO. All landline calls are included and also calls to 10 countries: - USA, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and Holland I think. I think those countries are right, easily checked on Sky's website. :thumbsup:

Edit : Think this also includes calls to mobiles in US and Canada.

Too expensive. Use Voipcheap.com and get all Euro (inc UK), US, Canada and several other destinations' calls for free. No line rental but no incoming call number (not a big deal really as you can get free incoming number from Sipgate).
