Ladies and gentlemen, I am in need of your advice for calling America.Today I need to call America from my mobile handset. And I’d like to avoid paying the crazy 1 pound and 25 pence per minute charge that I pay on Vodafone Contract. At least, I think it’s 1.25. Or something like that. I dare not look lest it cause me to flip out and wonder what the point is in paying Vodafone so much money every month, when it’s free to call America from my landline. I understand there’s an overhead that mobile operators need to pay to maintain their network facilities. However I can’t see why the average chap has to fork out so much for international calls. So I need your advice. Who do you use to call the USA — or any other country — from your handset? I’m toying with the idea of going into a Vodafone shop and getting a Pay As You Go sim so I only need to pay 5p a minute. Crazy isn’t it. PAYG customers get all the deals. Contract customers get nothing but a shiny new handset every 24 months. I could buy a new handset for the amount Vodafone would charge me to call America for an hour. Do you have any ideas?
