Tip: if you're paying by card, their card validation will fail your
transaction if your postcode has spaces in it. Remove the spaces and
there's more chance of it going through.

That is very interesting. I would have thought that it would have

In the case of the Betamax companies, considering the handling charge
and the 19% VAT, I look at the non-VAT Euro cent prices and they are
about equvalent to the real cost in pence.
SMS Listo is good if you want to use it for texts but the downside is
one less month of free calls than justVoip
