Am interested in using a calling card with my mobile phone.

This means dialling an access 0800 number followed by a pin number, then the number wanting to be called.

It's fine to dial the number to be called manually, but I would like to be able to dial the numbers directly out of my address book.

I can access the numbers to be dialed bringing them up on the phone after having dialed the calling card numbers first, but by pushing send, it doesn't want to connect to the desired number.

Does anyone have a suggestion please? The phone I'm using is a Sanyo 8200.

Find out how to key in a pause on your cell and save the numbers in your address book as something like:
0800999999p6666p096665555

On Sony Ericsson's you hold down *

That's what I do to dial internet banking.

Thanks for the reply Mike. Figured that is one way to do it. But think it would muck up the txt messaging I am doing to the mobile numbers I have programmed that way. What do you think?

On the Sony Ericsson phones you can store more than one number for each contact - ie. the calling card number as their home landline, and their actual cellphone number for the mobile number.

When you are texting, it defaults to their mobile number (though you must have the numbers in the main memory, not from the sim card).

Not sure if your phone supports it though.

What calling card do you use?

Nokia phones support "calling cards" means a long press on the send key calls a number from your phonebook as it stands by using a calling card!

Here's how to setup.

Settings,

call settings,

Calling card,
[Select]

security code? ***** [ok]

Card A
edit,
dialling sequence,

is always
_______________
Access no.
+ card no.
+ phone no.
_______________
press ok after scrolling to above,

access number (put your own card access here)
0800174300

card number (your card pin plus # )
123456789#

remember to select it after entering it

"card ready for use"

Done!

To dial using card, HOLD DOWN the send key intead of just pressing it.

_____________
card call. . . .


_____________
will eventually appear and wait,,,, easy as that!

It works seamlessly with my old style Gotalk (new ones are different) and yabba (cheap international calls from ur 027)

Yabba's details is

0124
[your card no#]+[your pin#]
12345678912#p7412#

Enjoy!


Does anyone know of cheapy cell calling cards?
