Text him and find out a land line number for him in Norway - a hotel or office or mate's house? Then use a cheap line like 0844 calls to call him there.

I wonder if the fact that its a PAYG that's causing the problem - bear in mind that it costs to receive calls when you're overseas.

what about texts sometimes they are free to receive?
29 Nov 2007 /  #7
texts are like the UK except instead of 10p they are charged at 25p per message from EU countries

With all mobiles that are on the PAYG tariff you are charged in the UK and where the person is for making the call if phoning .... so not advisable

even on contract unless you are on a tariff that allows free calls in your monthly allowance you are charged UK and EU costs to receive and make the call

if on doubt speak to you network provider.
