Hi everyone,

Maybe someone can help, i want to ring the UK to speak with my parents, but it is so expensive, i know in the UK we can purchase international calling cards, does anyone know of any cheaper ways to ring the UK from Tunisia, maybe Kris can help.

RE: Calling UK from Tunisia

If you can get near a computer then Skype is good either skype to skype or skype to phone.

RE: Calling UK from Tunisia

I know all about high phone bills [:mad:]. Returned home from 2 weeks in Tunisia to a £140 bill. That was only 2 phone calls home and some texts. Most of my money went on calls/texts to Tunisian sims.
You can buy Pay as you go Tunisian sim cards from most big phone shops for between 10TD-25TD. Apparently if you get a local to buy it then it will be cheaper because they rip off the tourists.

Hope this helps

RE: Calling UK from Tunisia

heya!

It doesn't work when I try to call a Tunisian number!

I know it's the right number because they called me when I was in Tunisia but now I'm back in the UK I tried to call it and it says it is an incorrect number!

Has anyone else had this problem?

Could it be my network? (virgin mobile)

5 dinar for ten minutes sounds great to me! I was about £10-£15 for calling uk for under that. Will def give it a try. It's cheap for me to call tunisia from uk but it's when I'm in country I seem to rack up the bills! Thanks... top of my list.

might be your network - you may have to call up and have them allow you international calls....

But this mind sound silly but are you putting the zeros infront of number??

I think the best way to call from Tunisia to Europe is to use the Public Phones (Taxiphone ) that's what i do .... just you insert few coins (3 or 4 dinars ) and that's it

cheap calls

im really not impressed i have just come back to the uk for a few weeks and so being apart from the my boyfriend iv obviously been calling him. well just had my phone bill. £120. so not happy. when i was on t-mobile best minutes cost 10p per minute and it was only 10p per minute. but now i have used my mobile on o2 and its so much more expensive because of the surcharge on it. i do wish they stated which companies do charge and which ones dont.

sorry about the moaning just its so expensive. so if anyone got any alternative cheaper ways on o2 then can you let me no. :confused:

This is available from carphone warehouse and works like a normal pay as you go sim for your mobile which is good if you want to call back to your loved ones whilst away from your landline..you just add credit like normal...back to tunisia is normally charged at 21.3p per minute and texts are charged at 15p...not as cheap as some of the cards you can buy but then you can only use these from your landline so if your out an about all you need do it just swap your sims over and make your call

Phone Cards

Im not sure where you live Becky but in my area i usually get them form the corner shop that is normally owned by pakistani's no offence but they often have to ring abroad as well so they may either be able to point you in the right direction or sell them.

I hope it doesnt cause any offence!
