      International Calling

      While you are in the UK, you are only able to use the 3000 minutes for calls to standard landline & mobile UK numbers and not to any other EU Countries.  This is charged as Pay As You Go rates. Please Click Here  for rates.

      To make an international call (calls to non UK/EU phone numbers) you will need to add extra credit to your SIM as the 3000 minutes and 3000 texts can only be used to call and text UK/EU numbers.  

      To be more specific you can use the 3000 minutes and 3000 texts to call a Spanish number when in Spain, call from Italy to France etc. if outside of the UK but within the EU countries listed.  You cannot use these minutes to call Australia, Brazil or any of the other non UK/EU countries (recommend that you use voice apps such as Whatsapp, Skype, Viber, Facetime etc.).  However, you can call UK numbers from any of the "Feel At Home" destinations.  So if you are using this SIM in Brazil, you can use the 3000 minutes or 3000 texts to call and text the UK.  If you both have this SIM then you both have UK numbers so if you are both in Brazil you are able to call or text one another.

      The credit can be purchased in the UK by purchasing a Top Up/Recharge Voucher from Petrol Stations, Convenience Stores, Supermarkets or directly from the Carrier Threes Stores.
