Cheap international phone calls from mobile phones

Hi everyone,
We hope to expand our Calls from Mobiles pages
http://www.callsfrommobiles.co.uk
in the near future.
Unfortunately it appears that, at least for some of the services we currently list, Virgin Media customers cannot currently top-up using text messages from their mobile phones.

We have now added Planet Numbers to our database.

Vonage VoIP plans


Hi everyone,
At present we are unable to add Vonage to our VoIP database (we hope that they will at some point be able to provide a rate feed). However, we do now have some banner adverts for them on our VoIP pages (see, for example,  http://www.
ourfavouritecompanies.com/
VOIP/ ).
Note that they recently introduced some new call plans: V-Plan Africa andV-Plan Pakistan and India
Here is what they say about these plans:

Plan specific benefits are:

V-Plan Africa 
  • £6.99 per month
  • 100 minutes of calls to landlines in 9 African countries and mobiles in 6 of those countries
  • Calls to UK landlines 01, 02 and 03 at 1p/minute, mobiles at 10p/minute, per second billing and no setup charge
V-Plan Pakistan and India  
  • £9.99 per month
  • 500 minutes of calls to landlines and mobiles in Pakistan and India
  • Calls to UK landlines 01, 02 and 03 at 1p/minute, UK mobiles at 10p/minute, per second billing and no setup charge
Generic benefits across both plans include
  • Low international call rates for calls to landlines and mobiles outside of the specific plan area
  • Unlimited Vonage-to-Vonage calls
  • Ship a Vonage phone adapter to friends and family anywhere in the world and eliminate international call charges back to the UK

Cheap calls to UK 0870 numbers


Depending on your phone plan, you may or may not have calls to 0870 numbers included free from your landline at certain times. At other times, it looks as if Auracall's 0.5p per minute access number 0843-0153974 may currently (as of August 4 2012) provide a very good way to do it. 
See 

shows rates for calls to 0870 numbers in the first table on page 3. At peak times, unless you have the Unlimited Anytime plan, the rate is shown as just under 8 pence per minute. So 0.5p per minute looks to be a huge improvement, especially when you are held in a queue waiting for an operator to become available!
