    Hi,

     

    I think is 00 11 44 from Oz; then drop the first 0 from the UK code

    or if you know you are goonig to be on for at least 30 mins you dial 001844 then drop the 0. Telstra use this to chrge for 30 min blocks so if you chat loads this can work out cheaper

    you can also buy prepaid phone cards from the newsagent or mobile phone shops. To ring England it's around 1/2 cent per minute. You dial the local number on the docket (the cost is just a local phone call) and then listen to recorded message, put in code off docket and then dial your 001144 plus England number with the 0 left off the area code in England. I've used these dockets lots of times and found them very good. Just pick up some info from the newsagents next time there and have a read up about them. Some cards last for 3 months and you can re-top them up or just go and buy another one.

    We use a pre-paid phone card and we get a really good rate (not sure what it is but we get a lot of talk for our dollars!). Go Talk is the one we use and we bought it from the Post Office.

     

    Be aware that some of these phonecards have outrageous and sneaky costs....my parents bought one which had really good rates for the UK and no connection fee. They weren't told however that there was a 50c per day admin fee and a $1 disconnection fee!!! This was also bought from the Post Office.

    Go Talk is good. I am a VIP customer and get 15% free with a recharge. It only costs 75c a connection fee and for $10 you get 2000 mins of calls.

    I just had Voip connected with Dodo after spending $60 calling a mate in England through Telstra! It's free if you sign up for 2 years, otherwise it's $200 for the box. It connects to the internet but works like a normal phone. Then you pay between $4.95 and $14.95 per month depending on the plan.

     

    It now only costs me 9c for EACH call to a UK landline and I can literally talk for as long as I like! You can also choose to have local and STD calls for 9c each. Have saved a fortune on my bill and i'm loving it!!! Def worth trying out if you want cheaper calls!! :)
