Default calling the uk

Hi all,

Just wanting to get your ideas on the best way to call the uk? A friend recommended phonecards did a google search and came across <<<SNIP>>> looks ok but I called and it's such a pain to enter in the access number, then the pin then the number I want to call hopefully there are other options. Any ideas would be appreciated

Those 'phonecard' cons are just not worth it, particularly for the UK. For instance I can call a UK mobile for less money than it costs to call a standard Oz number. That's before you look at messaging services which allow voice and video calls for free.

Thanks Gary, yes I agree, by messaging services do you mean things like Skype? Are you just using your mobile to call the uk then?

Skype to international landlines and mobiles - about 1c a minute I think

Phonecards are a thing of the past - a pain to use anyway

Amaysim have some great calls and data deals. I use them plus Whatsapp plus Skype (I used to pay Skype 10 quid a month, but they don't get a penny/cent off me anymore because they kept un-supporting their expensive phones).
