    European mobile calls help needed

    Complete fool when it comes to mobiles but I may need to phone a relative in Austria.

    I'm on o2 (simplicity 12 month) and so are they, can anyone tell me or point me in the right direction as to how much this is likely to cost, and would it be cheaper to phone one way or the other.

    I think I've found it now, I think it's 35p per minute to call and 18p per minute to receive.

    I have an O2 PAYG card just for calls to europe with the international caller bolt on (you pay 5 pounds once to get this)
    Costs me 7p per minute to a landline, 30p to mobiles and 10p for texts.

    Unfortunately not, they are in the middle of nowhere.

    ok how about going to your local corner shop and buying one of those 'phone' cards then where you phone a number in the uk and they connect you to the number you want u pay for the card but then get a MUCH lower call rate


    or in tesco there is a sim for lybria (cant spell it) mobile which do really cheap international calls as all the forigners buy it lol

    Do you not have a landline you can use? You can call an Austrian landline for 0.5p per minute or a mobile for 4p per minute.

    Thanks for the help, they cannot get to a landline. 50p a minute is ok as it will only be a one off short call. I just needed to know it wasn't going to be £5 a minute or so as I have never called abroad mobile to mobile before.
