Hi,

Do you mind if I bring to the attention of the forum the brand new service from Calling Cards Direct where you can make unlimited calls to India from your mobile for a monthly payment of £10 from your mobile. The site link is http://www.callingcardsdirect.co.uk/Story/CCD-Unlimited.

40 countries in total are available using this service.

Many thanks and Regards

Good rates but not too low for other destinations like Pakistan!

As  Baz is promoting his own website i would have thought at the very least he would have declared an interest,or seeked admin,s ok before promoting the card here.

Worth noting  

•Call duration is restricted to 60 minutes per call.

•Calls are subject to a fair usage policy.

Though it may be obvious to most, it is also worth noting that you must make calls from the mobile that you registered on, and that you should ideally have plenty of free UK landline calls in order to dial their access number. The access number is an 0345.

Overall, it seems like quite a good deal, but you really need to be using the service a lot for it to be worth your while. At that point, the completely unknown FUP limit (Fair useage) may well kick in. The FUP for destinations like India may well be quite low. If it is anywhere close to 1000 mins, this deal is not worth it.  1p/min is what you can get with most non-subscription services anyhow.

Where have I heard of Story Telecom before?

I do apologize for my transgression. I do have an interest in the service. I framed my post as a request to the forum for permission to hightlight this as a new service.

I appreciate the excellent work that the very knowledgeable members of this forum are doing.

Hi Baz. Since you are linked with the product, can you let us know what the FUP on calls to popular destinations is? (e.g. India)

Maybe petkow you are thinking of your old friend piptaps IIRC?   Undecided
Ah.. yes! I now remember it being discussed in the old niftylist/telecomforum days. (...Talking of which, I noticed it has magically resurrected).

I think Storytelecom is a Simplyfone product.

No they are owned by Xfone Inc, a US publicly traded (AMEX: XFN) international telecom company.

I believe SF are/were agents of Storytelecom .

OK Thanks!

Makes sense now! I wonder if he doesn't know the answer to the question about FUP? Seems strange to post here and highlight the word "unlimited", considering it is not really unlimited at all.

Thanks for your thoughts. It is a great question (regarding the FUP). My post was not intended to misguide in any way. That would be foolish and self defeating.

In the telephony and broadband worlds, FUPs are standard as I am sure the forum members are well aware and are designed to prevent the abuse of sevices which would be 'unlimited' to a 'reasonable' user.

I believe that this offer will give the users call rates that could work out at worst 90% cheaper than the current call rates to India from 0844 access numbers. Will be more specific later if possible.

Interesting !        Shocked

I notice that there have been no posts made since the 10th September until today - which is some down time !        Roll Eyes

I also see that Oron hasn't bothered to post a welcome back to old members, nor to explain the gap of nearly 3 months.       Huh

Communications hardly seem to have improved there !        Cry

Dear Mh,
 
Are your comments related to any of the above discussion? Who is Oron here? I I couldn't find any.

I am sorry Sri, but petkow's comment, and my reply, assumed prior knowledge of the rival forum.        Shocked

Oron is their admin.        Wink

Sorry to fragment this thread even further but exactly what is the policy regarding posting your own services?

I have something in the works myself though whether or not it would be of any interest to readers of this forum remains to be seen, however it would be useful to know whether it's going to get me into trouble to mention it here once it is ready?

The 'policy' is deliberately loosely drawn.  There is no automatic prohibition on posting about your own services, but it is courteous to run ideas past me beforehand, and I will not stand for deception where an interest is not declared.        Wink

In the case of this thread, baz owned up to an interest as soon as he was challenged, which is arguably a little late, but 'better late than never'.        Wink

If he had denied any connection, I should have messaged BJ and petkow for their reasons in alleging or suspecting an undeclared interest, and the thread would have been removed if there was reasonable grounds for suspecting a lack of integrity in the OP.

HTH.
