I use Tesco app for years and call quality is just fine, as all SIP providers offers. Better quality on Apple iPhone, worst on Android. But I ca't complain as never paid for calls, as when £1 finishes, I just register new number and have £1 again, plus free calls to landlines.

Sorry cold from me, a betamax service called freevoipdeal is just over a euro a minute and you get 120 days free landlines and and this is crucial it's a sip service so you can use the best android app which is csipsimple, the call quality thru Tesco's app will be garbage as are all these other internet calling apps because the app is resource hungry. Cold from me

zerocrop

Then your point is incorrect. You can join the service and Tesco give you £1 worth of credit, and this lasts for 180 days. Therefore you do not need to topup at all. You can simply let it lapse after the 180 have gone by.

AAB

My point is, it isn’t free when you need to top up £6 to get the free calls. That needs to be made clear in the title.

I just register new number and get £1 free :) Doing this for over few years and enjoying free calls.

I'd be interested to know what the SIP settings are for my account so I can use it on my laptop. If anyone has any info, please let me know.

We'd like to know the details on how you call landlines with WhatsApp, which is the purpose of this Tesco app and of Skype Out. Thanks

migavupe

TBH I'm not sure. I get free unlimited minutes with my contract and it's a push if I use 5 of them. I'm not a big caller.

A quick Google and this only seems to be 60 mins per month and to certain countries? Is that what you're referring to, or is there something better?

buglawton

I used the Tesco app to call landlines till the free credit ran out. Decided not to renew the credit as: 1. Generally dodgy sound quality with some dropouts when compared with perfect SkypeOut on exactly same wifi or mobile data. 2. Sometimes drops calls completely which is a deal breaker when it took you 20 mins to get through to a human at a call centre. 3. 70% of the time, tone dialling is not recognised, another deal breaker as you need it for navigating call centre menus. There have been no updates to the IOS app I used for a very long time. Tesco should get it's act together if it wants its name on this app.

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!!

I thought the deal pic was a shark lol

just realized that on an original post by seaniboy few weeks ago 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.

Exactly that.

6 month into the "contract", I find I still can't add credit within the app on my android 7.0 phone...

SingingDwarf

I'm not quite with you - are you saying that you used to be able to select Travel Mode to get call routed via wifi, but that now it does not work? I noticed this today, after trying to use wifi for the very first time - select Travel Mode, try to dial, get message that "It appears you are no longer in an area where roaming charges apply. Do you want to turn off travel mode?" Selecting no, it still attempts to dial the local access number.

faddy54

Found that I had to select Travel Mode to get call routed via WiFi, just setting Prefer WiFi didn't do it. Used it today for first time for a while and I guess app must have been updated as it now seems to ignore Travel mode after giving me a message that I'm not in a roaming area.

Strange they do else where - maybe sign off as you then ?

Lol, standing in Sainsburys at the fridges waiting for a milk stock reply were we ? Mine was within 10 seconds, a slight delay but not major.

Hmm my test text to 2nd mobile did arrive after all, time stamped 4 mins after sending. That'll be good for those quickfire text conversations then!

Very useful if you have family or friends in China.

seaniboy

I text my second mobile and my own mobile both arrived fine, who are you sending to ? UK or abroad ?

Back on topic then, I am trying the app. Made a call, so-so call quality with some ip phone type breakup. Sent a text, it showed sent in the app Messages section but in fact never arrived.

I believe someone's already tried using it abroad via data only without success.

AP-Deal

So in short, while you are abroad, pleas euse the option below which will place the call using wifi/data and avoid the roaming charges, the quality will depend upon the internet speed: You can however select ‘Travel Mode’ from within the App settings which will restrict the App to making calls over Wi-Fi only. This can then be used connected to Wi-Fi* anywhere in the world (*Wi-Fi charges may apply). I hope it helps someone.

AP-Deal

I think I found the answer to my question and it looks like you will not be able to use this app from abroad without paying roaming mobile minutes chargesunless you turn on ravel mode within the app)...please see below: What is the App Access Number? The App Access Number is the telephone number that the App uses to get through to our international telephony service. This number is free to call for Tesco Mobile customers. Can I use the App whilst roaming? We do not recommend this as you may be charged extra for calling the access number while roaming abroad. You can however select ‘Travel Mode’ from within the App settings which will restrict the App to making calls over Wi-Fi only. This can then be used connected to Wi-Fi* anywhere in the world (*Wi-Fi charges may apply).

AP-Deal

Same thing happened to me today when I tried to use the app to call a UK landline, it then dialed a 03300010254 number and call got connected(using my mobile minutes rather that data I suppose)...so I wonder how this will work when you are abroad..has anyone else got similar experience?

buglawton

I found a 4 min outgoing cal in my iPhone 'recents' to a contact that the app created called "Tesco International Calling". 03300010254. It coincided exactly with a call I made via the app itself. I assume it's because my phone could not find a wifi signal. Strange though, the Settings in the app give no hint that it'll use anything other than wifi or mobile data to make calls!
