Hi All,

My aunty lives in America, while my granfather lives here in NZ. Previously she had setup something for his account so that when he called her it was free for him and she was charged, but apparently the companies in america that she uses to do this keep dissapearing. She has asked me to see if there is a company like that in NZ, or if it is possible to do it through Telecom.

Any ideas?

I was thinking about that, but I was kinda hoping there was something that wouldnt involve him having to do anything. He's had a stroke or two and can't see properly so I was thinking if we could get him something like what he has had that would be ideal. Either that or I'll try and get her to setup a toll free number that only he knows.
