    Default Calling USA cheaper than domestic calls.

    Just looked at http://www.idial365.com/ , supported by T-mobile , you can dial a proxy and then talk to mobiles and landlines in USA for flat 3p per minute. No other charges.

    Does that make sense to you ? Oh yeah , rip off England ...

    I dunno. I'm with TalkTalk and I can make an hour-long call to LA (and any EU country as far as I know) for free, longer off-peak I think. Maybe even includes mobiles.

    1) They don't sell "free" new phones in USA so telcos don't need to have high call rates to make up for it
    2) I think still in USA receiving phone call results in a charge.

    Pretty sure you are right, however local calls are generally totally free.

    Not really as I pay 1p per minute to UK and USA. Why is yours so expensive?
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    you can call from a t-mobile mobile.

    you dont need data plan on the mobile to use skype for example.
