jackyleunght2002: Telecom 0161 calling


No, you need to be a direct dial tolls customer to get access to this.

You could try a calling card like Easy Call (you can set up auto pin so you are not prompted for your pin when at home).

Rates are good, and call quality if good also.

A Telecom ASID is a number that uniquely identifies every physical copper phone line in New Zealand. They aren't really any use to the general public. We (and other providers) use them with Chorus to ensure that we are both discussing the same physical copper line (as there are often multiple lines into any one property).

Regards 1 of Q I raised- Telecom ASID


Message Hi Duncan

As I have raise a question on the Telecom ASID.... I just wish you confirmation on this....

well you know in New Zealand, we have some international toll providers like Telecom 0161, Telstraclear Ztalk... and we chinese communities have our own International Toll provider.. Digiplus (0567 and 0568)

Prior to joining to Orcon, my family still have my account with Digiplus, and when they do provide their cheap international toll services to all users, they do require our Telecom phone account number and our billing detail such as address and phone number that we wish to call oversea to. Once it is entered on their system, we will be able to start calling with a cheaper rate...

So now, I have join Orcon, I am just wonder what will be happening with my association with Digiplus, am I really not allow to use this services anymore because I don't have an actual Telecom Account number? So the question that I have raised on this forum was, is my Telecom ASID is the same or similar as my ex-Telecom Account number? and can I quote my Telecom ASID number to digiplus so that i can use back the cheap international toll services?

I know that there are huge variety of International Prepaid phone card at all the supermarket, dairy etc, but my family have a senior citizen in the house, she is preferred to be as easy as possilble for making calls back home...

Your expertise on this area will be gladly appreciated.

Thanks
Jacky

Jacky, if you're with Orcon's new LLU service you can call China UNLIMITED for only $10 a month, and Orcon's rates on toll calls are actually quite good - do you really need to stay with Digiplus?




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.

well i have to say, i know it is great for $10, but i don't only ring 1 person....

we have a lot of family and friends oversea, can't limit just only 1 number.... if it is $10 for the particular for a month, it would be good, but I don't think orcon will do that... just a thoughts???

$10 international calling add on is for a whole country, not just for one number.

manhinli: $10 international calling add on is for a whole country, not just for one number.


Thanks manhinli.

Yes, that is $10 for all landline numbers in that country.

Also, you can turn it on and off on a monthly basis. So if you are going on holiday in January and wont be calling anyone then you could stop the calling add on for that month, then turn it back on in February, up to you.
