Dial Online

Now Localphone customers can click to call

We’ve launched a brand new service called Dial Online which lets you make an international call between two phones by clicking a button on our site.

All you have to do is tell us the number you want to call from and the number you want to call, then click “Make the call”. We’ll call you – Your friend’s phone will then ring and when he or she answers you’ll be connected.

The call will be made at our low-rates and you’ll pay for both parts of the call. For example, if you ring a US mobile from a mobile in India you’ll be charged 2.4¢ per minute. This is because you pay our US rate 0.9¢ plus our India rate 1.5¢ (based on our current rates).

Our Dial Online service is especially useful if you don’t live in one of the 40+ countries where we have local access numbers – you can now make a cheap call using this method instead.

To start making cheap calls at the click of a button just log in and go to the Dial Online tab. We hope you like this new addition to your Localphone services!

New users can sign up here.

Second, we’re giving you a voucher code that you can use throughout next month to get an extra 15% free bonus credit whenever you top up $50 / £35 / €30 or more in a single order, giving an effective rate of just 1.3¢ / 0.9p / 1.1c per minute to India!

May Price Drop! India Rates Now Even Lower

Thursday, May 6th, 2010

India has always been one of Localphone’s most popular calling destinations, and to say thank-you for your continued loyalty we’re going to be offering all calls to Indian landlines and mobiles at just 1p / 1.5¢ / 1.2c per minute for the rest of May.

Compared to our standard rates that’s a massive saving of up to 32%!

There has never been a better time to recommend Localphone to your friends and family. For example if they top-up just $15 you’ll earn enough for 100 minutes of talk time to any landline or mobile in India, and you’ll keep on earning more for any orders they place in the first 90 days of their account! For full details see our recommend-a-friend page.
