Calling Oz from your mobile

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a cheap pre-dial number to use from mobile phones (Orange)?

 

Phone bill is killing me at moment, thanks in advance.

if the person at the other end has broadband, get a skype box for them. costs about 30-50 quid.

the box can have a uk phone number (£2.50 per month) so you can phone oz for free using your mobile free minutes.

or, if you have a smart phone, download the skype app, and use that. the prepaid mins cost very little. if you dont have a smart phone, bug orange for one, threaten to leave. they should give u one.... you've given them enough in the bills you've had!


Chicken, gave me a bad coupon.

That's handy for future...apologies I wasn't clear on the OP, I'm calling different numbers so above won't be the fix for me :( I think a pre-paid calling card may be the answer?

I've used the post office one to phone from my UK mobile to an AU landline which was good. To phone another mobile I am unsure.

 

SKYPE - I also have this on my iPhone and so does my friend. If we are both within a wifi area then the calls are free.

One of the UK orange pre-paid options is cheap - I used it quite a bit before we moved out. I think it MIGHT be camel or something but I'm not sure :)

Does anyone have a spare instruction manual for a baby girl?

There's an app called VIBER. If you're both in a wifi zone and both have the app the calls are free

When i move to oz i will buy a UK phone number on skype that ports to my oz phone number so all my relatives call an uk 01 number which rings in oz essentially free calls for them and a few quid for me to setup..no one needs to have skype open!
