    Is there anyway where you can call anywhere in the world and the minutes come out of your anytime/any network (I have heard about this but not sure how to do this).

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I don't think there is such a package.

    It would cost you to call abroad normally.

    ISTR reading something about an official package which allowed this - could be Vodafone?

    But, you can also do it unofficially by dialling the international number through a UK callthrough number which is included in your inclusive minutes. e.g. on most O2 tariffs you can call 0870 and 0845 numbers within inclusive minutes (but check your individual tariff first!) - therefore you can ring one of these international callthrough numbers on an 0870, then it gives you a dialtone and you enter the international number. Try googling for it.

    With some vodaphone contracts you can get something called "passport".

    You pay 75p for all international calls then the rest of the minutes come out of your bundle.


    You'll have to check that though becasue I'm not certain.

    I use this all the time, brilliant service. Beware though that some networks dont allow it or charge it instead of taking it out of your inclusive minutes, the website explains it all

    no it doesnt. international calls dont come out of your credit. going on internet doesnt even come off your credit. you are charged seperate for that as well

    75p connection fee (you pay this to receive or make a call) then the minutes come out of your amount. So if you called for 50mins in the UK, you would lose 50mins. If you called for 50mins in Spain, it would cost 75p, then you would lose 50mins. The connection fee is then added on to your bill.

    This only works in these countries though:
    Albania
    Australia
    Belgium
    Czech Republic
    France
    Germany
    Greece
    Hungary
    Republic of Ireland
    Italy
    Japan
    Malta
    The Netherlands
    New Zealand
    Portugal
    Spain
    Romania
    Sweden
    Switzerland

    (applies to a certian network within that country)
