O Font of all Knowledge!
We have a SFR mobile and a Vodaphone pay as you go mobile that we use in the UK. We live in France and have a France Telecom land line.
When our friends come to France should we communicate to their UK mobiles using FT, SFR or Vodaphone ? Which number should they use for us as I think that all of our calls will have to get routed to the UK and back and charged accordingly. Is this a daft question and the difference only measured in centimes or pennies ?

Hi Lesley,
Mobile to mobile calls are always going to be the most expensive option, especially if you are calling 'foreign' phones.
Ringing, or calling from, the FT landline is likely to be the best option.
But also make sure you are registered online with your mobile operator as this will enable you to keep track of charges.
Hope this helps, Craig

Word of warning for anyone who has kept their UK Pay-as-you-go mobile but are living in France - make sure that you use it occasionally (recommended: one text per month minimum). Vodafone have just cut ours off for "lack of use" with no warning (their customer services said we should have received a text or email - but we got neither). The £40+ credit on the phone has also been conveniently "lost" with the termination of the account. As a mobile customer for over 20 years, needless to say there is a letter winging its way to Vodafone HQ as I type!
