LAST year marked a dramatic change in the way we use our mobile phones, when trendsetters such as Mega Mobile worked out how to get big savings on international calls.
Fast forward to 2012 and nearly everyone is making international calls directly from their mobile, via a low cost provider.
The irony is that Movistar, Vodafone and Yoigo are making up for it by charging more for us to call our friends in Spain than most of us now pay for our international calls.
Steve Burns, from Mega Mobile, explains: “It strikes me as very strange that I can call the UK from my mobile for two cents/min… and yet Vodafone charge me 15 cents/min for a local call.”
There are various ways to activate a low cost call service on your mobile phone. Usually a low cost-chip gets fitted in tandem with your existing sim card. However, newer phones can be activated via a simple download.
Continues Burns: “My international calls used to cost over 100 euros a month. Now I spend less than 10 euros through Mega Mobile.”
Mega Mobile is free to install and is currently offering 10 euros free credit for Olive Press readers.
