What's the catch?

I can't imagine some guy in Southall wnats to subsidize my calls to Australia ... why would he?

No top-ups need?

Sounds great, I wonder what "limited time only" means

The website claims no top-ups, no registration, no PIN dialling. Apparently looked too good to be true, but I can confirm it works!

My call lasted well over 7 minutes, so may be it would take longer when they terminate the call.

seems more than fair enough

Well, good luck, but in my experience, if something looks too good to be true, it usually is.

And if there's no obvious limitation, then there's usually a couple of hidden ones

I'd like to see the comments in a month's time to see whether those who have tried this then get HUGE bills. oO I really hope not

Huge bills of WHAT? would be helpful if you are able to elaborate. If you ware talking about phone bills, why would I wait for month to know if it is chargeable or not.... I have used almost all top mobile providers and all of them give you the option to check your call balance and your unbilled amount 24/7 ...... would you suggest some specific service providers which you are concerned with?

I queried the same with Vodafone customer service and they said 'kindly be informed that you can dial 44555 to check the remaining allowance for free 24/7' Hope it helps.

I also asked about any exception to the rule that all numbers beginning with 02 are covered by my monthly allowance, this is what I got from Vodafone customer service

'there is no exceptions except for landline numbers in "Jersey" (01534) "Guernsey" (01481) and landline in "the Isle of Man" (01624) and its mobile numbers (07524, 07624 and 07924)'

Just tried this and the automated message says that it can be delayed up to 72 hours....

Tried the number, but no luck. It keep on saying that "trying to connect the destination number", but never get through. Tried different landline and mobile numbers in India? Dose anyone got through?

Yes, I got through finally. Many thanks!!

It's worth notiing the FAQ below

"10. Are call recipients charged when I call them using Cheers Dial?
In most cases there is no charge on incoming calls, rare exceptions are when a mobile handset of a different country is used to receive calls, which would add roaming charges."

So the limitation is that if you dial a mobile number you will be charged what ever their mobile rates are. Good if you stick to land lines though skype is my preferred option.

There are no charges or limitation.... it is a free service for time being. What delphinid's post is telling you is that the RECEPIENT would be charged if they received calls on their mobiles while they are roaming. This is what would happen if you use this free service or any other service to call someone on mobile when they are roaming!!!!!!! how using this service would make a difference?

So how do they avoid making a huge loss? If I call Australia, and get charged an 020 fee, while cheersdial pay for the Australia call, they are bound to be losing money.

Why would they do that?

The answer to your question lies in the story behind why international call rates from UK are significantly cheaper than UK local rates?. In brief they can still make the money if the UK termination fee they receive when we call 0208 number is more than the international call rates they pay to connect our calls to various overseas destinations. You should be able to get more information on such business models on websites like giffgaff and other phone forums.

Anyways this has nothing do with the FACT that we can enjoy this free service till it lasts!

With respect, it is relevant. SOMEONE is paying for the call.

And an 0208 number is a call to suburban London. the 'Termination fee' is NOT greater than a seven minute call to Australia.

I suggest you are biased! Does anyoe else know how this turns a profit?

Highly unlikely that anyone would share their secret about how to make profit in a business.... best of luck if you can find something and hopefully you would share with all the members the secret of how you make a profit! if you do......

This site is not about investigating the company profiles and strategies..... if you have a problem, just don't bother..... rather being unhelpful and posting unnecessary comments......

It doesn't turn a profit. For now. It's simply a cost they're prepared to bear for the present as part of the marketing costs of setting up the operation. Call it a loss leader, if you like.

A bargain for anyone wanting to call the countries covered, the only marginal risk being that might collect and misuse your number It seems to work, though, with the number witheld - although as a telecoms company they might still 'receive' the witheld number.

I reckon it's illegal; and I reckon your desperation to protect them means you are involved.
HUKD shouldn't be a place for marketing illegal scams.

You tell me ONE way that this can be a profit (not the BS you gave me last time), and I'll shut up.

Failing that - or one more lie - and I'll pass the info on ... guess where?

Hot!! All those blabbering about it being illegal, please find something else to do in your lives. Only throw your **** here when you when you have evidence of it being illegal.

Illegal? Why in heaven's name would you think that? Have you any evidence for that ludicrous suggestion? You really ought to have before making allegations like that!

See above for a perfectly logical reason for the 'free' calls.

Hold on to your horses guys. There is no point in being aggressive, it’s just a deal.
If you don’t like it don’t use it. Chapter closed.

There are so many deals especially the tesco instore ones which not everybody can get it but it’s still a deal for few. So use it if you like it or else move on.

Cold. Avoid.

They use VOIP, that's how they are able to provide international calls for free.
And, like others mentioned, they are giving you the carrot and letting you nibble the nice juicy tasty carrot. Very soon, you will be addicted to their service and want more carrots from them and thats when they'll stop being free and make money.
