Re: Cheap Calls to and From Turkey

Hi all, I believe the following website has been published on TFL before, but you need to refer to it often as it is regularly updated with the cheap phone services, some of which seem to disappear overnight!!

Re: Cheap Calls to and From Turkey

Have just updated the numbers, put a direct link to find the latest cheap rate as GarryP posted.

Also have pointed out the Voipstunt callback service which gives you 2p/minute calls from your turkish land line. you just have to install the application first (really easy) this creates a user name and password then you can just log into the www.voipstunt.com website onto your account and then specify what number you wish to call (i.e. friend/family in the UK) and what number you wish to be called back on (i.e. your Turkish Land line) the charge for this is currently 4p connection and 1.6p/minute for the call.

Take care

Marc

Re: Cheap Calls to and From Turkey

Good info here. As I am with Sky Talk , they charge normal rates for numbers begining with 08 or 09. So I will swop back to Bt. My mum has just moved abroad to Cyprus and I want to call her often.

Just found out that if I dial 1280 before dialing these cheap call numbers, 1280 diverts my call back through to bt. So it looks like I can stay with Sky talk and just use 1280 when calling Cyprus. So my calls go through Bt who will charge the fixed 1p in minute.

I will try these people first and see how it goes.

Re: Cheap Calls to and From Turkey

I was looking for a cheap rate Internet based calling card from Turkey to the UK and forund this one.

http://www.comfi.com/p/info.php/109

Anyone used it?

I have used Comfi.com, previously Masterbell.com for a few years now from the US back home, pretty good service and it's cheap. No searching around for a shop to put money on a card, you can set up auto-refill option so as when balance get low it auto refills to a set amount and you can still call home. Looks like 2-3p per minute to phone home.

Comments?
Thoughts?
Better deal anyone?

Cheers,
TJD.

Re: Cheap Calls to and From Turkey

You can use a voip adapter over a broadband connector and call for free and the line quality is better than some other types of services. If you buy the voip box in Turkey you pay aboutYTL 75 but in the UK it will cost you about 35 for box and subscription.

Re: Cheap Calls to and From Turkey

Guys,

Thanks for the advice but I don't have a computer in Turkey, I'm sure others are in the same situation.

I do have a handheld wireless device which I use to chat, but sometimes it's good to talk.
