Hi i have just gotten back from goa, calangute yesterday
we met some really nice lads where we stayed and i have every intention of staying in touch with them
the only problem is the numbers they have given me when i send them a message it says it wont send
do i need to insert some numbers infront of the original number
the original phone numbers start a "9"
also will it cost me extra to text than normal
the same with calling them how much is it around to call indian mobiles?

I also have a landline number for 1 of them it begins with "0832" so what is the dialling code i need to insert before it
thanks and i hope someone can help
xxx

It's 20p a text with O2. You dial 0091 before the number.

The code for India is 0091,but first go to your post office and ask for an international phone card,you can get a £5 or £10 one.We got a £10 one used it for 3 or 4 days,made loads of calls from my mobile to India then passed it on to a friend with £8 left on it.Ithink they last for a month or more If you are lucky you may even get free calls to India.

We've got an International call plan with talktalk cos we have relatives in Spain. Calls to India from our landline have come right down. It costs about 75 pence for a 10 minute call to an Indian mobile.
