Calls to channel islands Jersey, Guernsey and Isle of man mobiles @ 1p per minute - Tesco International Calling

3
Found 25th May 2017
my family friends from Asia were on their 2 week Europe trip.
they had brought with themselves a global sim card for their roaming which had a no. beginning 077000
I thought it would be free to call them from my O2 inclusive minutes.
thats when I realized its a Jersey mobile number.
It led me to search the internet , various forums n HUKD for cheaper ways to call the channel islands mobile.

most of the phone companies charge quite a decent amount as the channel islands are a completely different entity in terms of network providers.
While I was doing my groceries I checked with the tesco mobile shop the rates for Jersey mobile numbers. they said those were classified as UK Numbers. so great then.it would be a 1p/ min for mobile and 0p/ free to landlines.

I have been using the calling card to call my family n friends in Asia previously but this was just a one off thing that I had to use it to call a jersey number.

the landlines are effectively free with the minimum top up or With Free £1 credit for first time app downlaoders.

thought I have to post it because there will b people who will have family / friends temporarily or permanently resident in the channel islands and Incase they were unaware.
hope it helps some

winchman had already pointed this out in one of their comments.
sorry mates..when I initially searched for cheaper options to call Jersey numbers I did not see / find your posts.
I thought the deal pic was a shark lol
No bad thing that this has a separate thread, fill yer boots!
As you say, they are not included in most calling plans and has always been a bit of an anomaly as they look just like other UK numbers, It almost as if the phone companies like it that way, I wonder why!!
