Internet Phone Launched

We’re very exited to announce the launch of our new desktop phone. It’s free to download and available for Windows, Linux or Mac users.

To start making cheap calls all you need is a microphone and a broadband connection.

The new Internet Phone lets you:

    • Call your Localphone contacts easily
    • Check your account balance
    • See how much you’re spending
    • Add new Localphone contacts

So if you haven’t already, download the new Internet Phone and let us know what you think. New customers sign up here.

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!
