Hi,

I've been using the 2talk GoFree plan on my iPhone in NZ and it's great, I've saved paying a monthly phone bill and now only buy prepaid data.

I'm in Australia for a while and looking for a similar service - has anyone used one they can recommend?


Cheers

I used Skype when I was in Sydney for a week few months to ring within Australia and NZ. Subscription was dirt cheap and call quality was clear even over Optus's 3G network.

I use MyNetFone and Faktortel for my Australian inbound numbers, never had a problem with either. If you check out the forums on Whirlpool you'll find special deals for both of them.

I work for a Sydney based company from Dunedin and have used MyNetFone for years. $4.99/mo gets me 60 calls to land line numbers in AU/UK/NZ/US and more and after the included 60 untimed calls I pay 10cents untimed for those same countries. They have DID's for many AU places and the main areas of NZ. I do phone support for NZ and AU so have an AU DID and 2 NZ DID's. 1 DID is free and the other 2 cost me $5/yr each.

If you are interested use this link http://www.mynetfone.com.au/whirlpool that's how you get the whirlpool NEO special.

One thing I am quite interested in is that
If I choose to get a NZ DID with MyNetphone
Calling to NZ will be regarded as national or international call?

Well its considered an international call in the way you dial but if you go with the $4.99/mo NEO plan calls to AU,UK,NZ,US land lines are all charged at 10cents per call once you use up the included 60 untimed calls included.


When I dial an NZ number using MNF I have to dial 0011 64 X XXX XXXX. But things like caller ID for inbound NZ calls gives me the callers number most of the time unless they have it blocked.

 

https://www.mynetfone.com.au/whirlpool/VoIP/Plans/NeoSaver-Plan This is the plan I am on.

EDIT: Its 100 included calls for $4.95/mo now. It was 60 when I joined 3 years ago.
