  1. I run guided tours in Oxford and so I spend money calling back or texting back international customers’ phone numbers who see my business advertised and call me up to book my tours. This means I often have to return the call and I would prefer to not get charged international calling rates from my UK business mobile number advertised.

    I know there are apps like skype, viber, whatsup, wechat. However, as far as I know, all of these apps require that before I can call my customers free using these apps, my client also has to have registered my number to receive the call free- is that correct? As my customers don’t yet know me, they are not going to mess around with registering my number plus I need to call my customers back before they call and book one of my competitors.

    I do have a cheap lebara separate number from my business phone number but then that confuses customer as they don’t recognise number I am calling back from plus I turn my lebara phone number phone off at all times except when I rarely need to use it. So my question is what apps or phone networks do you think will best let me make free or very cheap calls using same usual number and without having to make a reliable internet connection to connect to a website page? I mention this latter point as where I work, I can use apps on my phone but trying to actually connect to the internet is hopeless in Oxford city centre. Obviously, I can’t be waiting ages to get an internet connection using my phone internet browser…just to be able to then try and make a call.

    Any advice most appreciated. For your info, I am currently on Vodafone network and I pay for a surcharge bundle of 100 free international texts at £5 beyond my monthly call plan.
