Cheap/Free way to call UK mobile abroad

Found 3rd Feb 2009

I'm wondering if anyone knows of any services or sites to ring a UK mobile in India. Alternatively, I also have a mobile other there as well I could ring.

If anyone has any suggestions/thoughts, that will be great.



if the other mobile is indian then you could use this link


4p a min aint too bad.

i thought that when you ring a UK mobile abroad the price you pay is the same as if it was in the UK, but the recipient has to pay the difference of the call.

I think you are right. If I ring the UK mobile I can use my allowance, but they get charged 35p /min

Thanks for your link - I will check it out.

Also, the company that I do most of my international calls on, 18185, has 4p per minute to indian landlines and mobiles, from BT lines. This can also be accessed from mobiles and cable lines in the UK, rate maybe different.

As you've grasped, your recipient will pay for incoming calls at the roaming rate of his UK network, but incoming texts should be free.

See here for 18185 - who also do 1p texts to UK phone numbers:

Good luck! rob
