Not quite sure how this works? If you were to dial an english mobile number from abroad it would still cost a high rate?!

im on o2 and i used the 07924 number when i called hong kong and it went through fine... Lately tho when i have been trying to call through to the number i get cut off whilst it is ringing but keep on trying the number until you get prompted to type the international number!

And no the other person wont be charged!

Yes. if they have a UK mobile phone number. Roaming prices will be dependant on which country & the foreign mobile network the person you're calling is located. If you are calling a international foreign landline or foreign mobile number then you will be paying international rate call. with the person you're calling not paying to receive them.
However, be wary though as when my dad calls my brother from BT UK landline to Hong Kong registered mobile number. My brother does get charged to received them but this is possible due to which mobile network carrier & what tariff plan he is on. Best bet is to check the person you're calling to in foreign country is if they get charged to received them.

For O2 UK mobile users, you need ]this when calling abroad from UK.

Just to clarify... this service is for those of you that would call international numbers and instead of buying phone cards or dialing 0845 access numbers you can call the above numbers which will be taken out of your inclusive mins if you are on a contract. so call the above number from your uk phone, type in the international number when prompted and then your through.. its like a replacement number for the ever so popular 07766 lines

anyone tried this on a 3 contract,
sounds hot good find i think i would need to use the 07624-100-180 number as the 07924-000-100 (is for orange users).

I would be very wary with these UK 3rd party international calls service providers as they try to by-pass UK mobile networks to offer people international calls using their own UK mobile network monthly inclusive allowance to support this but do you realise that the UK mobile networks have caught up with this foul practice hence have been clamping several UK 3rd party international calls service providers with legal action.

If these these UK 3rd party international calls service providers can save you money then why does the UK mobile network providers have to support these UK 3rd party international calls service providers for their own gains & connection charges. The UK mobile network providers have their own international & roaming rates to offer their customers to make these calls in the first place.

I have seen people have been using these UK 3rd party international calls service providers for a while then been suddenly been removed from service hence been charged on their mobile phone bill for using the monthly inclusive allowance & going over it to support this practice.

I would say take this as a pinch of salt but don't start crying when you mobile phone bills go rocket sky high after these UK 3rd party international calls service providers have been banned from the UK mobile networks providers. You are gambling that the UK mobile networks don't caught up with the these UK 3rd party international calls service providers & then charging you for the calls that are not part of your monthly inclusive allowance.

Your right in what your saying.. but from my experience with o2 they have never started charging for a number without making customers aware. They will either notify you of the changes in charges or just restrict calls to the numbers. i was using a different access number (076) for about a month for free up until yesterday when they have now disconnected that line. so hopefully i dont think i will ever wake up to a large bill... HOPEFULLY

no good for my 3 contract just tried got through fine.. was on the phone for about 1 min. to check got charged about £1.68. :x voted hot but rubbish for 3 contract.

This is what I meant as before if you read my replies to the OP. 3 UK mobile network does not like these 3rd party international service providers when they could themselves [3 UK network & all UK mobile networks] want to charge you instead. You are actually using the UK mobile network to make these international calls.

These so call 3rd party international service providers occasionally change their access numbers so they can by-pass the UK mobile networks in detecting these access numbers to allow you to use your own monthly contract inclusive allowance. This also applies to PAYG networks also.

Don't bother asking 3 UK mobile network for your money back as they are within their service T&C's agreement. Unfortunately, you are unlucky that the access number does not work for your mobile network.

This is more of a gamble with these so call international access numbers as they can change so often as long the UK mobile networks don't suspect it & piggy backing on them without them knowing.

It's no different to me getting free landline phone calls by tapping in to your landline phone supply without you knowing & billing the calls to you.

I have to disagree with you. What you suggest there is theft, i have not offered any kind of service for you to use. However the mobile companies are closing loopholes in a service they provide. If a customer uses their free minutes to phone a uk based phone line that then connects to a international number then surely they are not stealing. If however the mobile company thinks they are losing valuable revenue, which of course they are, with subscribers using this tactic then i guess they can ban the number. At no point is anybody 'stealing' as you would suggest with the above example.

This looks like an ad to me, maybe still free before the mobile companies start charging. :roll:
