Unlimited free calls to UK landlines (Upptalk)

Found 1st Jan 2014
Upptalk is an app for iphone, android and kindle that is similar to Skype and Viber. However, the main differences are

- it offers unlimited free calls from the app to UK landlines. No subscription required, no need to buy credits, just free calls forever!

- it gives you a free UK mobile number (making this very handy for devices that cannot take a sim card such as tablets and MP3 players). This is also convenient for people who live in areas where phone signal is poor but are connected to wifi.

Works perfectly. Thanks

sounds good the app is free and just read the FAQ'S sounds good

How can UppTalk offer free texts and calls?
Top ↑

UppTalk can offer free texts and calls thanks to our in-app advertising model and our virtual credit system. To contact non-UppTalk users there is a virtual cost that is paid for with credit. You always start with free credit and you can earn more credit easily through sending referrals and watching adverts, instead of paying any hard cash.

I've downloaded the app and it says I have 10 credits to use o texts and calls. So when I run out of credits I have I buy more.

So how is this free unlimited calls?!

Because calling UK landlines doesn't use credits!

If you don't want to buy credits, you can get free credits. I have linked this to my Dail123 account for phoning abroad as the rates are basically the same. Looks like it is free to use in UK.

How do you link it to Dial123 and what is the benefit of doing so?

I dunno, it seems to be a credit per minute according to the site

I use the numbers they gave me (London numbers diverted to Ireland). The benefit for me is that I don't have to have another credit system in place.

If you have tried it will become apparent that it is free. I think they have not updated the pricing on that web page. The google play store description has the following

That's to the United Kingdom not within. The 1 credit per minute applies if you were using the app abroad.

OP HAS MADE A MISTAKE

FREE LANDLINE CALL. TO. US. US. US.


I did create a account and made a free call to my self. How sad am I lol

It does work. But I'm not sure if they send URL phone details to other spam compInes. It asked to access my contacts. Lucky I was on tablet and I have no contact s.

Guess everybody is thinking the same thing: could you use this to have your friends from other countries call you in UK for free ?

Probably not, but still worth asking.

Its not a mistake, it says free calls to US but I've tested it and I was only able to make free calls to UK landlines.

I sent a SMS text message to myself. And it didn't work

I called my own landline and it deducted credits from 8. To 3

Your right the call worked but now check your credits how many u have left

It's not free ( well 2-3 calls are free ). Then credit goes .......

Not worth the hassle, too much fuss with getting credits to make this of any use

I just installed the app, was allocated a free number and started making calls from the app to landlines. I'm on Ovivo Mobile and just checked my credit and the balance is just the same as before.

I setup mine with real mobile number as my virtual number was Spanish???????!?!!!!!!

Nope. Doesn't work me

Can people from countries other than the UK use this and make free calls to UK landlines?

I'm guessing your using a phone ? Did you do any other verifications ? And what phone do you have

Let me try on tablet.

Is there a catch? Had a quick look through the T&Cs but couldn't find one!

Calls are okay, and they are actually free! But they sound more like your using Skype or something.

Well it worked for me without any decrease in credit. If you have 0044 before the number the app thinks it is calling from abroad and the credit goes down (just tested it). I made a call to Lndon earlier on and the credit did not go down.

Guess it does work. But not for me :(. I can't even call my own landline. I type in number. And that's it. Nothing. No ring at all. I'm UK London

This is the only one that lets you make free UK landline calls as far as I am aware (i.e. PC-Phone)

There are other apps such as ePhone which allows you to call US and Canadian numbers for free, which strangely worked on one of my devices but not the other.

Forfone offers fifty mins a month from your actual mobile number, rather than one that needs to be set up.
