Call Family and Friends in the USA for just a penny per minute!

Updated on September 1, 2012

1p Per Minute Anytime!

For many of us computer/internet savvy folk, Skype is the obvious choice for free computer-to-computer calls, but what about those of us that might not own a computer, or do not have a microphone, or simply prefer the good old fashioned telephone-telephone conversation?!
If you live in the UK, and need to call someone in the United States, you no longer have to worry about the ever increasing cost of international phone calls, thanks to a company that has now made it possible to chat for just 1p per minute!
And that includes calling a cellphone/mobile!!

Yep! A penny per minute, at any time of day!

The company providing this wonderful service is called 'Planet-Numbers', and this is how you use their cheap calling option:

Dial 0843 715 7777 from your landline.
Once connected, you will then hear a new dial tone, and this is when you dial the US number that you wish to call. Just remember to dial the country code first.
For example: For example, to call a number in San Antonio, Texas, you would dial 0843 715 7777 then 001 + 210 + the local number.
That's all there is to it, and when you've finished your call, just hang up in the same way you always would!

When you receive your phone bill, any calls made to the USA using Planet-numbers, will show as the 0843 number instead.

If you compare the price of your 1p per minute phone call to the cost of a regular phone call from say, a BT line, you'll be saving in the region of 17p per minute.
