Local Numbers Now Available in Ireland

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

We’re pleased to announce that we have added local access numbers in Dublin, Ireland. This means that customers in Ireland can now use our direct-dial and calling card services straight from their landline or mobile.

Get Started

What Does This Mean for Our Irish Customers?

Calling cards often use premium or national rate access numbers from which they get a kick-back, meaning they can keep their advertised per-minute rate deceptively low. Localphone access numbers are just normal local landlines, calls to which are often included as part of your landline or mobile contract’s free minutes! This is just one reason why Localphone is better than calling cards.

What About Everyone Else?

As of today, we have access numbers in Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Puerto Rico, Romania, Spain, Sweden, the UK, and the USA.

If we don’t have local numbers in your country yet you can still make great savings by calling from your computer with the Localphone VoIP service. We’re always looking to expand into more countries, so if you’d like to see Localphone access numbers where you are let us know!

Announcing Our New Auto Top-Up Feature

Wednesday, July 16th, 2008

We’re excited to announce that we have launched a new billing feature for all of our customers. From today you will be able use stored credit or debit card details to automatically top-up your calling credit whenever your balance falls below a certain level.

For example, you may choose to automatically order £5 of calling credit every time your balance falls below £3.

You can opt-in to this service by logging in to your Localphone account and visiting the new Auto Top-Up page in the Settings section. If you change your mind in the future, you can disable the service at any time from the same page.

The new Auto Top-Up feature provides a safe, secure way to ensure you never run out of calling credit again. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback here on the blog or via our main contact page.
