lol, I'm amazed you even bothered, why not just bridge a mobile on my favourites/bestmate to a VoIP platform? I'll never pay more than 22c per minute again. (usually about 4c even overseas)

My device just hops straight onto VoIP when I'm near an 802 accesspoint so the bridging is really jut a backup anyway.

I've got a blackberry on prepay :-P So thats a no go. I've got remotecall back enabled with an 0800 voip number, so generally am on similar rates to you. No more $0.89c a minute thank you Vodafone!

Sorry about the offtopic but why do you have a 0800 enabled call back instead of 028 number for call back purposes?
It would make sense to have an 0800 with remote dialtone (and put in your address book 0800123456pp021234567.

Or am I missing something?

Thanks.

No worries tcpdump - I didn't word it very well, i've got an 0800 enabled callback, that presents a remote dialtone. I like how 2talk presents CLID (caller display) 0800 numbers too, as far as i know they're the only voip provider to do so...

Is it worth paying $7/month just for that when you can have a free 028 number that calls you back and presents a dialtone?
I assume it's easier because you can put the phone numbers in the phone book with 0800123456pp021234567. but other than?

A lot of the time I don't have credit on my phone to be able to dial an 028 number, plus the 0800 looks a bit better on the business cards. I don't think my VOIP bill is ever over $15.00 a month.

I am doing that too now, been caught out with not enough credit to call 028, and too much to do the IOU which _really_ annoys me.
