Hi guys,

I am looking for an app which will allow me to effectuate cheap calls from abroad. I am currently in India but am going to the UK in a month to do my masters. I will be calling my family like crazy, however, I will need a good VoiP application to do the trick .

Anything other than skype please.

Much appreciated in advance!

S.

Chex, well using skype you would need to have a data plan (or available wifi network).

I was thinking of being able to use the simple cellphone call function to talk for cheap (i.e. something like a calling card).

I have found a service called rebtel. I registered with them, however i am not sure if it is exactly what i am looking for. I tried installing their app on an iPhone but no matter what it would not take my telephone number (which serves as my username).

Any good/bad words about rebtel?

Thanks.

If you don't want to use Skype, the best option is to unlock the phone and get prepaid SIM cards in the countries you visit.

wow, thanks for all the suggestions. I would combine TudorJ's suggestion with that of Europa.

I can see that you can buy Truphone sim cards and works perfect for the UK. I would get someone in iNdia to unlock my iPhone 5 once I get hold of a contract device.

Thanks again!

Edit: Brad, you are welcome, thanks for the suggestion.
