Unbelievable as it may sound you can really make free international calls from any UK Landline or UK Mobile.
Whats the catch I hear you ask?
You need to have unlimited landline minutes as part of your contract. Most good contracts come with Unlimited landline minutes so you can start right away.
How does this work?
Customers who have unlimited landline calling contract can make virtual credit by calling 03 numbers. The 03 numbers are regarded as landline numbers just like 01 and 02. This then allows customers to convert free landline minutes into free international calling minutes.
How much do calls to 03 numbers cost?
Calls to 03 numbers cost no more than a national rate call to an 01 or 02 number. They must also count towards any inclusive minutes in a phone contract in the same way as 01 and 02 calls. These rules apply to calls from any type of line including mobile, BT, other fixed line or payphone.This is from http://www.nidirect.gov.uk/the-cost-of-contacting-08-and-03-telephone-numbers
How do I start making virtual credit to make free international calls?
