Free international calls using inclusive 0870 numbers @ www.makefreecalls.co.uk

Found 17th FebEdited by:"Preying_Eyes"
I was browsing this website and came across a deal about international calls using 0870 numbers which reminds me of a service that I am using for over two years of now and it is bit better than deal posted here, so I thought of posting.


Their website is makefreecalls.co.uk/ and it is better in a sense that you can map your international numbers direct to 0870 numbers, so you dial an 0870 number and your call will be connected direct to your international number - less hassle and simple to dial especially if you have bad memory like myself and can’t remember the phone numbers:)


So how does this service work?

If you have inclusive 0870 numbers, you can make international calls free from your landline/mobile. There are number of landline/mobile providers who provide inclusive 0870 numbers and/or some kind of add-on for inclusive 0870 numbers. (see comments 1).


So how does the company make its revenue?
From their FAQ,


“Q: How is it possible to provide FREE international calls service?


A: We get a portion of the 13p service charge. Your telephone/mobile provider pays this charge even if you don't get billed for it. This allows us to fund the call to your destination country and we keep a small profit for ourselves.”


So which providers do provide the inclusive 0870 number?
Almost all of the telecom providers, EE, BT, Sky, Virgin, Vodafone. I will post the full list below.



So which countries are included?


Over 70 countries (See below).


Please also note, if 0870 numbers are not inclusive in your tariff then it will cost you 13 pence per minute plus your phone provider's access charge.


Hope this is useful for someone

I can vouch for this Service. I have been usnig this for over 2 years and has saved me thousands of pounds.

The guys who run this service are very professional and help is always there if you need them.

Just make sure you get free minutes to 0870 numbers from your Serivce provider (most landlines do) and you are good to go.

Sure, but makefreecalls.co.uk/ is better in a sense that you can map your numbers direct - so don't have to memorise numbers Also, i been using their service for quite a while now and I find it very good. Good sound quality and prompt connection.

does this include calling mobiles in canada.thanks


Apparently yes. "CANADA LANDLINE & MOBILE". I would suggest you to make a test call of few secs to check a) 0870 numbers are inclusive in your package and b) it works fine. Once you are done with call, have a look at your online bill after few hours to ensure you are not charges. Once you have confirmed this then you are good

So virgin media landline provides packages that include 0870 calls inclusive. Some packages include weekend only while others include all week. If you have one of these then you can use this. There are many others whereby you pay between 3-6£ and you get between 250-3000 inclusive minutes which is not a bad deal imho.
I use this. It really works, I've saved so much money, and no more buying credit and having it eaten up in no time.

It was there before but they removed it about 6 months ago I think. They were saying call termination charges have gone up x4 so they can't afford it anymore.
I use this number it is an excellent number to call anywhere in the world for free using inclusive minutes 08706472296

Old Virgin mobile contracts had calls to 0870 numbers available as part of the bundle, not on the new contrats. I have one and I get unlimited calls to 0870 numbers from my Virgin mobile.

Not by the looks of it. Call their customer services and ask. They will be able to give you a correct answer.
Looks very cool. :-)

Use this service regularly from my sky landline that has unlimited inclusive 0870 numbers 24/7. Good quality
We use this on our virgin landline which has free calls on weekends including 0870s. Have direct dial numbers for all the people we contact which makes it that bit easier.
Why not use a service like Lycamobile etc which offers calls for 1p/min anyways

Great if your with the right company, Tesco nubile don't cover 0870 numbers or talk talk so no good for me

Think of it as a free Android game, you'll need a smart phone that runs Android, right?
Anyone know the cheapest way to phone to and from Philipines?
It's good if you have free access to 0870 number
Very good for international callers, saves a lot of money. Mobile providers have now reduced or removed 084/087 calling facilities. EE had unlimited 08 & virgin had on old 3g (some old 4g plans should still have, if you asked during move from 3g).
