What's the cheapest UK network for international calls?

I need to phone someone who travels around a lot. What's the cheapest UK network for making international calls from my mobile?

If you're on Three you can get 3000 minutes of International calls, landlines and some mobiles, for £15 a month.

Would this be restricted to EU and US or global calls?

Can you use your inclusive minutes?
If so, use DialToSave.
I find Lebara and similar sim cards too expensive.
If you want to text, use TextFish. It's super cheap and you get free trial too.

If you're calling someone on their UK mobile, you'll be paying for a call to another mobile. The recipient will be charged roaming rates

Three UK. Been trying to post a few times, but its failing.
Let me know where you need to call?
PAYG option has a lot of dial prefixes for international countries. They are nicely hidden on their website. Alternatively you can use Skype on Three for international calling. This is by far cheapest option you can find. Google voice is even cheaper, but requires computer.

I would try lyca mobile...

Examples of call charges:
- South Asia (e.g. Pakistan, India) 1p per min
- Middle east (e.g. Dubai, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia) 5p per min
- Africa (e.g. Nigeria, Ghana) 1p per min

Lycamobile is pretty much a pay as you go sim card with top-ups starting from as little as £5.

You can use 18185 from your mobile. There's an 020 number to access it, so better if you have inclusive minutes.

I have a 60 minutes add-on for international calls from T-Mobile, but when I overran it for 20 minutes it ended up as £25 on my bill. So 18185 always for me.
