    ok guys so my best friend just shifted to london and I wanted to know the best and the cheapest way to call him. We have quite alot to talk about. We are also IM partners so communication is a must, but expenditure on calls is getting higher by the day. At present I have to spend around $300-400 per month. I cannot use PC-PC call, because he has a day job and I want to call him on his CELL PHONE. I also cannot call his landline number.

    SO PLEASE BHW, help me find a solution coz I know some out there has a solution. Please help.

    Warm regards and thanks in advance.

    whats the cheapest way to call from PC to CELL phone ???

    Skype might offer some packages, but they will probably be expensive. Im not familiar with any of the other PC to CELL phone companies.

    Skype OUT is £3 a month to call any landline in Europe. If he signs up with Three Mobile he'll get skype access for free and you can call him on his mobile aswel...

    I would suggest skype, its cheap. You can both have accounts on your computers and even load to a pda phone so you can be mobile. Once you have an account and have purchased a phone number and some skype credits, i think your looking at 100 bucks yearly. Depending on your usage and outbound calls. I mean if you going to both be at a computer eveythime you communicate it will be free. All you will need is 2 accounts 1 for the UK comp and 1 for the India comp.

    Hope this helps thats my opinion on whats best to do

    Right, Skype PC to PC calls are free. You just both need to download Skype and then you can talk 24/7 if you wanted to. That's the route I would go if I were you.

    Ok, so its not PC to mobile, rather regular phone to mobile:

    goto phonecheap.co.uk and use their 0844 access number - it's 3pm per min. I use them or telediscount.co.uk (slightly more expensive but overall more reliable) to make all of my overseas calls.

    to save you some time the phonecheap access number for india is 0844 439 23 23. you dial it then the chick says how much the call costs and then to dial your number and hit # and voila! you're in India baby, or at least your voice is.

    Check out www.sipgate.co.uk or .com
    They also have those wifi phones that you could buy for cheap, i use them and they give you a local in number on most cities around the world and like $7 or something for 7000 free minutes a month out to landlines anywhere in the world :)
