Also will any of these work from my French "Pay as You Go" phone SFR

We are based on a boat therefore cannot install a land line

Sign up for a service such as www.lesminutes.com you can dial their alternative access number (national rate) from your mobile and then call the UK through their discounted service, pretty sure it works out cheaper than calling international directly from a mobile). You can set it up instantly online too.HTH,// Jacob

All i know is when i went to enquire about a pay as you go, SFR was the cheapest but you can only call France, so you have to get registered to call the UK.When you buy your phone they will give you a tel # to contact...... They told me it will take 15 days to be able to call the UK which i find stupid. 1st world country!!! say no more....
