    Just checked out NZ as thats where I phone most via 18866, interesting to see Ratebusters and Telesavers are 1p a minute so I will give them a try.

    Where you talk about 18866 and 1899 you have left out a word or two on the "how to" dial bit and where you say "and you will receive a bill for it" perhaps you could put "you will receive a monthly bill for these calls"

    edited: to add, its great by the way!

    There is one benefit that could be incorporated into this, and that would be the ability to check a number of locations at the same time.

    If people where able to select say upto 5 destinations and view the results this would be less time consuming than having to repeat the process 5 times.

    Apart from that it seem's to be very good & a useful tool ;D I trust you will also include the result for calling within the UK too :D

    It say's "Departure" near the drop down list, surely this should be Destination or "Call Location"
  • Hi did a check it says 1899 is the cheapest UK national caller service at 0p

    This provider has a 3p connection charge if you use 18899 this is 0p with only 1p connection charge???
    I say what I like, I like what I say!

    Thanks Dale & Tony

    Will get both of those looked at - and of course you're quite right about 18866 at 0p plus 1p connection for the UK - that's my recommendation!

    There are always tiny glitches when doing something techie at the start :)

    Great help but a few teething probs. 18866 is only 2p to UK mobiles at weekends - it is 12p Mon-Fri. 1899 is cheaper.
  • Hi,
    Telestunt charge 4p/min via 08444286161 number for a international call. Is there any other charge that i have to pay. I am using bt and talktalk.
    Thanks
