Default calling a UK cell from the USA - 11-04-2008, 11:47

For my friends and family to call me on my UK cell number it is quite expensive for them (especially if they do not have an international plan to get a good rate). ATT have a rate for 26c a minute but you have to sign up for an International plan at $3.99 a month.

What I have done instead is put my UK cell number on my Jajah account. My UK cell number has now been assigned a USA number (Philadelphia). When my friends call this USA number it is forwarded to my UK number. They don't pay for the call but I pay 18c per minute charged on my jajah account for the call from a USA phone to a UK cell number.

Does this plan sound good? Anyone have other suggestions?

Sounds like a good idea, if you don't mind paying. You could also tell your friends to use a calling card with low UK rates (CPC has some, and I'm sure Callmart and other sources have comparable offers).

Orange UK have launched animals name tariffs on PAYG, which they've had on contracts for a year or so.

http://shop.orange.co.uk/shop/payasyougo

The option called Camel has cheap international calls to more destinations than Call Abroad, and some are cheaper now. USA and Canada are 6p/min, while several European mobiles are 10p/min, which seems unbeatable to me for direct-dialled calls (unless using the bundle option on O2 payg). UK calls are all 20p/min (undercut by the 15p Raccoon tariff)

Yep, it's a good deal. Too bad they couldn't have combined Camel and Racoon (sic), that would have been unbeatable (as it is, the Carphone Warehouse international SIM has a 15p rate, though no roaming).

I wonder if the name Camel was inspired by the CAMEL roaming/billing system?

It seems unlikely, as the marketing department probably don't even know the name in a more technical context

When the original Animals contract tariffs were first rumoured (and in fact turned out to be an accurate leak), they were treated by some people for quite a while as a hoax, like an advance April Fool joke as that was the actual launch date
