Super-cheap calls from ANY UK phone

Prepaying for your international calls needn’t be complicated – that’s why we’ve introduced our new ‘pay by phone’ service.  You can buy calling credit in £5 increments, simply by calling a single number – you’ll then receive a unique PIN which you can use from any UK landline or mobile.  Here’s how it works:

  1. Dial 090 4446 4446. This will cost you £5 (plus your phone provider’s access charge)
  2. You’ll hear a brief thank you message, along with your unique PIN.
  3. Dial 0161 328 7777 followed by your usual FULL French number including 00. You can find the per minute cost for calling all countries here on our tariff page.
  4. When you’ve used up your £5 just repeat step 1.

Call French landlines for 1.5p a minute – mobiles for 6p

With Planet Numbers, you can use any phone, on any network to make super-cheap calls to France. Calls to a landline cost 1.5p a minute, all day every day, plus a 5p connection charge. Calls to mobiles cost just 6p, all day every day, plus the 5p connection charge.

How our ‘pay by phone’ service works

To buy £5 of international calling credit, simply call  090 4446 4446 from any UK phone. You’ll hear a quick thank you message, along with your unique PIN which is ready to use instantly!

To make an international call, you just dial 0161 328 7777, then enter your PIN and your full France number, including 00. See below for a list of local dialling codes.

There’s a 5p connection charge per call but the cost of calling our 0161 access number will normally be covered by your regular ‘minutes’ allowance. Please check with your phone provider if you’re unsure.

Here’s the clever bit

If you’re using the same number to call as you did to buy your calling credit, you won’t need to remember your PIN, thanks to our clever CLI recognition system!

Be careful not to press your phone’s Call button more than once or you might get charged for the call twice. You have a full 60 days to use your £5 credit. After this time you will lose any remaining credit and your PIN will no longer work. Please note that WE NEVER AUTOMATICALLY RENEW your phone card.

To add another £5, simply call 090 4446 4446 as before.

If the line’s engaged, hang up!

If the international number you want to chat to is engaged, or nobody answers, hang up. Your network supplier may charge you for the call to our 0161 line even if you don’t complete the international call. Most mobile users will be covered by their regular monthly minutes allowance, of course.

Cheap calls to France

It really couldn’t be simpler to save yourself a fortune on your overseas calls to France. With Planet Numbers’ International Call Saver service, all you have to do is dial a special international access number immediately before you dial your normal overseas number. In this case, after dialling our access number you would simply key in your normal number in France (ie you need to key in the full international dial code, not forgetting the zero zero at the start of the number).

This means that your call to France is now handled by Planet Numbers, instead of your usual provider, and therefore the call will be charged to you at only 2p a minute, regardless of when you call or where in France you’re calling. So, in a nutshell, to start making cheaper calls to France, instead of just dialling the French number directly, you call 0843 716 7777 first (this is the access number).

Once connected to Planet Numbers you’ll hear a second dial tone. Now dial the full French phone number you wish to reach - don’t forget you need to start with 0033 as usual. For example, to call a number in Paris, you would dial 0033 + the local number.

To end your call, hang up in the usual manner. And if you’d like to make another international call, just redial 0843 716 7777 first. Simple.

Please note: our current super-cheap per minute rate to France of 2p is a fixed rate when you’re calling from a BT landline to an French landline. The cost of calling France from your mobile phone may vary but currently can be as little as 1.5p a minute. Click on the links at the top of the page to find out more about calling France from a mobile.

Save a massive 74p per minute vs BT

The call will appear on your bill in the normal way, but the number dialed will show as 0843 716 7777. More importantly, instead of paying 76p per minute to call France via BT, you’ll simply have paid 2p a minute … all day, every day.

No sign-up or registration required – try it right now!

When you use Planet Numbers’ international call saver service to call France from your landline, you’ll simply pay 2p a minute, all day every day.

If you’d made exactly the same call, for exactly the same length of time, using BT’s international sevice instead of ours, you’d end up paying 76p per minute! In other words, by using Planet Numbers you’ll save yourself a massive 74p every single minute you’re on the phone to France!

No sign-up or registration required to use the service – try it right now and save ££s

You don’t need to register for Planet Numbers International Call Saver service, and there are no passwords, codes or PINs to remember. All you have to do is make a note of the special access number that you need to dial in order to make these super-savings from any UK landline when you call France: 0843 716 7777.

Call costs to France that are just too good to be true?

It sounds almost too good to be true, doesn’t it? Perhaps you’re thinking “Where’s the catch? How can I call France for so little when other phone networks charge me so much?” Well, there isn’t one!

We can charge you just 2p a minute for every call you make to France (plus your phone provider’s access charge) simply by diverting your call via our own network and therefore not having to pay for the use of BT’s international phone system.

Planet Numbers International Call Saver service even works when international call barring is activated on your phone – which is why you can use us to call France from a phone box too. When you call France using Planet Number, the phone thinks you’re dialling a UK number … which indeed you are - the Planet Numbers access number. The phone doesn’t need to know that you’re dialling an international number immediately after!

How will the Planet Numbers call to France appear on my next phone bill?

When you use Planet Numbers to make a super cheap call to a landline, or mobile, in France, the call will, of course, appear on your phone bill. But instead of appearing as an international call (in this case, to France) the international call will simply be shown as the Planet Numbers UK access number.

So instead of the familiar number in France appearing, you’ll simply see 0843 716 7777. It’s always a good idea to make a note of the Planet Numbers access number for calling France so that when your bill arrives you, or whoever looks after the payment of your bill, recognises the call. One thing is for certain, however, you’ll be sure to appreciate how tiny the cost of calling France has become – especially if you’re used to seeing the price of an international call to France from the likes of BT!

Make cheap calls TO French mobiles – just 4p a minute (plus your phone provider’s access charge)

You can make incredibly cheap calls to French mobile phones from any UK landline using Planet Numbers International Calls Service. You simply dial 0843 721 7777, followed by the full French mobile number that you wish to call, starting 0033 as usual.

Calls to French mobiles using 0843 721 7777 are charged at just 4p per minute at all times (plus your phone provider’s access charge).
