    I notice that Sipdiscount have ended all free calls (except for the test 1
    minute calls, UK landlines are now 2ct/min. I suppose we all knew that
    this would end at some time.

    Freecall have now switched to the Betamax model of requiring 10
    euros deposit before making calls. A new angle is that at the end of the
    90 day period, you keep the credit and the cost of the calls made just
    gets deducted from your credit.

    I have been to the website a number of times today and did not notice
    this. Checked again a few minutes ago and the free calls list is still
    there.

    Weird!

    It appears that between the 22nd and the 26th there have been no free
    calls to UK geographic numbers:

    Checking, I have something similar for the 23rd and 24th. A credit
    reducing exercise perhaps? Or a malfunction in the billing software?

    You don't really mean that, do you?

    I've noticed this to, all Dutch numbers where charged 2 eurct./min. I
    also checked the Sipdiscount.com website. All the free destinations
    where gone, now they are listed again.
    (a trick to earn more money...) still it is very cheap!
