I've been using local phone for a few years now and also on almost a daily basis to make a quick call to my husband who is working abroad.

Local phone give you a local 03 number which you register in your account so you don't need 08 calls included in your package.

Prices are very competitive and

There is a call price checker on the moneysavingexpert website which tells you the cheapest company to use based on your destination call.

You may transform any number to UK local landline number via your Localphone account. Then use your registered mobile/landline to make the call. You don't pay to your mobile/landline provider if you have free minutes included in your mobile/landline contract. You pay to Localphone for the minutes.

Alternatively, download Localphone Internet Phone software to make the call using a computer or an iphone, then you only pay to Localphone.

Then go via quidco to signup for a new account
quidco.com/loc…ne/. You can signup with a different email address now. Purchase some credit to qualify for the quidco cashback. (using the voucher code sent to student address)
Quidco terms dont mention a minimum purchase amount so you might be able to get the cash back with just a £1 punt ! The maximum extra credit you can get is £10

quidco says the cashback is £6, however I signed up last night and it has tracked for £10 instead

you can also choose to pay in dollars if you are thinking of using the service long term to save 20% VAT on all future purchases, but then the max free credit will be $10 not £10.

Be aware you have to dial a local access number to make the call. If you do not have free inclusive minutes you could be paying - to BT for example - an 11p call setup charge AND 7p per minute. Hardly free!

I haven't a clue where I get the unique number for my contacts. Is it possible if someone could guide me through this?Many many thanks!Nodame



EDIT1: I think I got it now! Just to confirm:

1) I use the direct dial number instead of the normal international number.
2) Localphone will be the "middle-man" and connect the call from the direct dial number and the international number.
3) I pay the rate which is shown on the page. (In this case 0p per min)
4) I pay for nothing as I'm using my free minutes on my mobile phone to dial the direct dial (In this case is a 0207 number)
5) There are no hidden charges for me? What about the receiver?

Many thanks.

I have been using localphone for over two years and the rates are much better than skype and the service is much easier to use because you are not to a PC to make calls. Let's face it skype's rates are really high to mobiles? I will be calling my girlfriend in the US on the 14th for sure. Great deal.

Likewise. I've had an account with them for 18 months. I don't use it that much, so paying a monthly skype fee would be stupid for me. My localcall payments in the whole time Ive used them, have been about £5 total. This offer makes it a no brainer to join and use, even if its just for a day and zero spend. But then, that's assuming you have a brain! :w00t:

Ah, never had the problem. I find that they are even fairly lax about which IP addresses (ie more than one!) you use if from, as long as you don't go silly! Either that or they just don't bother to check!

nicaj - i like your comments, seems we both have an interest in this area.

Localphone is a good company and they allow you to top up with as little as £1! If you use a softphone from your computer, the calls to the USA are actually FREE. They allow you to use your credit for sending SMS (although they are a bit expensive), calling card feature with a local or 0800 access number and VoIP. I luckily made an account before they started charging for UK DIDs!

Re: Betamax, their FUP is really winding me up. I get FUP'd at random time even though I have not exceeded the minutes, probably because I am using Voxalot for least cost routing of my calls!!!! The only way to avoid the FUP is to run my own PBX to do the least cost routing at home which will cost me £50/year so not really money saving. Once I have used up all my credit, I'm going to switch to Vyke which charge 2p for 01/02 calls for upto 1hr in the UK!

Who are paying extra for the privilege, when using other methods to get cheap calls (even paying for them!) would work out cheaper for MANY users, as you would just about have to be permanently on calls to get your money's worth!

I guess it works well for people who have the Unlimited Anytime Plan with BT or something equivalent.

The calls are generally NOT free.. they will be charged at local rate, so one way or another you are paying, either through paying for a contract with BT or whoever, which charges extra for all-inclusive calls (if they do allow you to call these!), or on a per-minute/per-call basis at whatever the rate is at that time. I suppose on BT the weekend free calls will be actually free, but not the rest of the time.

There is rarely such a thing as a FREE lunch, but there are options where you can get it pretty near!

eg.
First of all, Dont' bother at all with an all inclusive contract with the line rental, thereby saving that money and try these as options instead:

Finearea companies (eg. Voipcheap.co.uk) give WEEKS of genuinely free calls (90 or 120 days) all over the place, inc. the UK and many overseas destinations when you pay for a top up (varies, but round about a tenner), then when the freebies end, you still have the full amount of credit to use afterwards! (involves using VOIP either on a PC or a standalone unit)

OR

Try Call 18866 and similar companies who charge you only for the connection to many destination and you get an hour of calls included (without being charged by BT for the call time), for about 5p. Unless at the free weekend local calls period, BT will charge this for your "Free" call to this company to connect you to the US.

There are other options too, and it doesn't work for every destination, but most of the time it will be cheaper than than this one off NOT-quite- free offer!

I have plenty of spare inclusive minutes.

What is disappointing for me was not being able to have multiple home locations, as I wanted my sister in Spain to call off my account.

unless I'm wrong with this service you pay for the calls (debited from the balance you to up) and also pay or consume your free mobile minutes.
I think the call checker from MSE using a 0845 number is more straight forward unless you need to make call from mobiles because you don't have a landline.....
