    New Localphone Website

    It’s here – our brand new, shiny website. We’ve given it a whole new-look, and have been working hard to make it easier for you to use. The site is more informative with some new and exciting features to help you get the most out of our services.

    Check out the new stuff below:

    • We’ve renamed Direct Dial to Local Numbers
      When you log in you’ll see the Local Numbers tab where you can add new contacts. If you can SMS to your Local Numbers we also now list the cost to text. You’ll only see this if your location is set to the UK or America.

    • There are new logged-in tabs to help you discover our services
      Each section has got extra information in the form of a “learn more” link to help you understand how to use our services. Visit My Account to take a look.

    • The VoIP page has changed to include a brand new desktop phone
      We’ve re-named the service to Internet Phone to make it a bit clearer for people who don’t know what VoIP is. We’ve also launched a brand new desktop phone that makes calling from your computer even easier.

    • You can now click to call from our site
      Dial Online is another new service which lets you make an international call between two phones by clicking a button on our site.

    • Log in using your Facebook Account
      You can now log in to Localphone using your Facebook account – it’s quick and it’s easy.
    • And that’s it! Head on over and look around.
      And don’t worry if you miss something as there’s lots to see, but in the coming weeks we’ll write posts to remind you about some of the new features and services. Please be sure to tell us what you think of the new site. We’re keen to hear your feedback, so why not leave your comments here.
