Cheap phone calls UK to OZ
I've not been on the forum for a while as reading all these stories and pieces of information is getting me carried away and I'm still at the stage of waiting for job references to be returned. I expect this could take three to four weeks and need to try and put the whole thing out of my head.
Anyway, I have a small offering which I hope people will find useful if it hasn't been posted before. I have on occasion used a website www.telestunt.co.uk for cheap calls to places outside the UK. All you do is log on, locate the code for the country you are calling and follow the instructions. It's easy and I think the charges for Australia are only 1p per minute to a landline. The rate for calls to mobiles is obviously more.
Keeping my fingers crossed and trying not to have too many sleepless nights.
Thanks Carolyn, I'm sure this will be very useful for family back home.
Does this mean I'm going to be getting a call from you soon...?;)

Phone calls to OZ
Following on from Caz and Wayne,
We use first telecom for all our Australian Calls and it's really cheap. We add credit to it via an 0845 number (local rate) then each time we want to ring Aus we dial 1639 which goes straight through to an automated service that tells us what credit remains then we simply dial the number.
When we normally ring Aus we are on the phone for about 45-60 mins and it costs about 50p.
You can also use it abroad and it doesn't appear on our normal BT bill as you have prepaid.
They can be found at: www.firsttele.com or phone 0845 215 1639, 8am-8pm Mon to Fri, 9am to 5pm Sat.

I use this site http://www.loiol.co.uk/ it will search most of the low cost companies for most countries from the UK, to landline and mobile. Over the last few years I have made mabe a couple of thousand calls to China, the cost of the companies changes a little and sometime the quality can be poor if it's at a busy time so its good to have sevral companies to choose from.
:)Hi Guys dont forget good old skype the quality might not be as good but its FREE and you get to see the person aswell. Cheers Graham
There seem to be a few good deals around - we have some family that use skype and those that don't have a pc use Telediscount which has worked well for them for the time we have been here. 1p per min to oz landlines and 13p per minute to oz mobiles.
following on from this does anyone know of companies offering cheap calls from oz to uk..
