Well, I have just had an email from Telerabais telling me they have gone back to local rates for SA, as from today, so I will eat my words of yesterday!!

Because Telerabais have upped their rates to South Africa(it was local rate!!!!!) ...... Using Phonexpat is now the cheapest in France to call SA. But the good thing is that using Phonexpat, you can still profit from using Telerabais as the 08 numbers are billed with France Telecom, so the rates published on their website still applies J For many countries is is still local rate, make the most of it while it lasts!!!

I have hooked up with a company who rent Nokia handsets 6310i with French Sim cards.

All my French staff have them, and they seem a lot cheaper than pay as you go. We lost a couple of handsets, and replacements were delivered free of charge within 2 days.

Rental is £5 per week

National calls are £0.13/min

Calls back to the UK are £0.29/minute

Incoming calls are free.

Gimme a shout if you want their details: rumble@boardnlodge.com
