Could someone point me in the direction of landline and mobile access numbers that allow cheap calls to be made FROM Poland to the UK? Good recommendations and links gratefully received.

Thank you

I am aware of Skype but I am looking for a non-pc solution. There are many such numbers in the UK I know, but I need a Polish equivalent!

Calls from Poland to the Uk

Hello,
I tried unsuccessfully to get a steer on this in another forum. I am looking for a company or a method of accessing cheap calls FROM Poland to the UK. It's landline or mobile please, not Skype or similar. There are many such access numbers in the UK but do they exist in Poland?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Cheap calls FROM Poland to the UK

In the UK we have plenty of options to ring Poland cheaply (for as little a 1p a minute) by first ringing another telephone no that then diverts your call.

Is there an equivalent service in Poland to ring the UK cheaply ??

there is a phonecard, i think it's called telegrosik, but i really am not sure about the actual value for money in this case. as per usual, if you have internet access, good old skype is a brilliant option. they have some really good deals on unlimited calls to landlines in most of Europe (of course including Poland and UK), i pay £3.50 a month (you can cancel anytime as well) so i suppose it would work out about 15 zl a month. if you wanna call a mobile then i dunno about any deals like that from Polish mobile operators, at least i'm not aware of any, but you can always buy skype credit and call mobiles in UK with that.

edit: i remember ages ago Telekomunikacja Polska (the main Polish landline operator) had adverts about cheap or even free calls to landlines abroad, i know landline operators in UK provide deals like that, cheap or free evening and weekend calls to Europe, have a good look on google or ask around. Alternatively you can try other Polish landline providers such as Tele2, MNI or Datacom and ask them if they have any deals for calls abroad.

We use the Utility Warehouse as our landline provider. They're cheaper than BT and you can make landline calls to Poland for 1p per minute with their Economy Saver option (£1 per month). The advantage is you get landline quality calls which are far superior than phonecards or Skype.

We also have an internet phoneline from them which costs us £2 per month. They give us a small box which we plug into our internet router (not into the PC). If we plug a phone into the other end of the box it acts as a second line with an independent number. The phone calls on this line cost the same as on our main line. The box can be used anywhere in the world (including Poland ofcourse) and the cost of the calls would be as though we were calling from the UK. So if we used the box in Poland and called the UK, it would cost us the same as a local UK call would cost us (which in our case is free as we have free anytime calls).

cheap calls FROM Poland

dzien dobry Panstwo!

Can you advise me how to get cheap calls from Poland back to UK? In Belgium there was a virtual company "Tele 1" who specialised in this. needed a prefix on the number, etc etc

dziekuje

Dzien dobry!

I would recommend something I used every day to talk to my father (yes, I talk to him every day... jajaja). He is in Venezuela and I'm in Houston. We talk all we want for only 19 US dollars a year.

It's called, MagicJack. Its a device that you can buy online and will give you your own number. You plug the thing on the USB port of you PC and thats it. on the other end, you plug a regular phone and you are set to call for free to any number in the US and Canada.

However, you want to call to the UK. All you have to do in this case is get a second magicjack and send it to your family in the UK. Then, you can call them to their magicjack number. Each magicjack is 39 US$ and it includes your first year. I think it's fabulous, but if you don't like VOIP devices, then I suggest you find a very cheap plan to call from your landline phone. (perhaps prepaid cards).

Good luck!

Vonage - a company who you can use from your computer (but you plug in a proper handset) - they give you a UK phone number and you pay £6.99 a month for unlimited landline calls AND people can call you and pay the same as they would if they were calling a landline in the UK. It's great! I speak to my family back in the UK everyday.

If you haven't got a computer/internet at home you could also get a heyah simcard and sign up to the flat rate tariff (see heyah.pl/en) and it costs 44gr a minute to call the UK - landline or mobile.

Hope this info helps!

Use skype as the poster above says
Unlimited calls to landlines in over 20 European countries.
Call any time of the day, any day of the week.
No long-term contract.

€4.95/month
€5.69 incl. VAT
skype.com/intl/en/allfeatures/subscriptions/europe/

I have been using this for two years now and speak on the phone for hours :)

I swear by vonage

That's interesting. Here in the US they have a rather bad reputation partly because it seems to be almost impossible to cancel the contract once you've signed up with them. The company must be doing a much better job in Europe.

Neither do you with skype, as you just buy a skype router :)
Here is the one I have a tad expensive and there are cheaper ones.

Telegrosik cards is what I use to call abroad cheaper - one can buy it almost in every little shop selling press - they have English language service too I believe - calling a landline in most of Europe costs around 30 gr + the local connection to their gateway

Hi there
My name ia Ad Jansson and we have started a company called Iring24.
We will be starting soon with a calling card to make cheap calls from Poland to UK or anywhere in the world
I am looking for some people or companies who can take over the delivering in Poland. I do not speak Polish myself
but I have a couple of friends who do. So if you know someone who wants to do this kind of work then please contact me

We will have 50 access points in Poland that means that there will always by a local call involved and then the person
dial the card number and destination and speaks to uk landline for 5 pence and mobile 10 pence

However we do have another service.

If you are livinging in the UK you can have your own Polish number and you can give that out to your family members and friend

Its calles '' FRIENDS AND FAMILY

You buy the local number £ 2.95 and rent it each month for £ 2.95. Your famil can now phone a local number and that terminates
either to you home phone (7 pence or mobile 10 pence) and this is what you pay.

Get yourself a Lebara sim, order one on line for free, get a cheap phone, (e-bay, gum tree, market) PAYG, top it up and away you go. Calls from Poland to the UK, landline 1p per min, mobile about 4p per min. I live in Wroclaw and have 2, one for me to call family and friends in the UK and one I got for my Mum to call me. The only thing is that the sim has to be delivered to a UK address so get it delivered to a friend and have them post it over or collect it the next time you visit the UK. You can manage your account on line, check your spend, check your balance, auto top up etc.......Go on line and have a look.
