Inclusive International Calls using 3 mobile: New Three Range – update 2

Posted on Dec 30,2011 By Admin

In order to facilitate our members using 3 mobile service, we had launched our inclusive range yesterday. It has been brought to our attention that 3 are charging certain users on this inclusive range. Whether that number range is chargeable seems to be dependent on the specific type of 3 contract a user has. We don’t want our customers to be unhappy, and indeed our reason for launching IICalls in the first place was to bring FREE international calls to all. So we have an alternative range for our 3 customers to use. This has been tested extensively by our engineers and is believed to be free to all 3 users. You need to log-in to your account on http://www.inclusiveinternationalcalls.com/ and delete all of your international destination numbers. Then add the international destination numbers one-by-one again, and our system will automatically assign you a new access number from our new inclusive 3 range. Then you are ready to make your FREE international call. However, as always please make a short test call first to ensure that the call is coming out of your inclusive minutes, and that you are not being charged. Apologies for any inconvenience, and happy calling. Regards The IICalls Technical Team

International Calling: New Three Range - update

Posted on Dec 30,2011 By Admin

We are very excited to have launched a new Three range as of yesterday. However, it has been brought to our attention that a very small number of Three users are being charged for accessing their access number by their network. Obviously we do not want you to incur any charges when you make your international call - that indeed was our reason for setting up the IICalls service in the first place. We always advise our customers to make a short test call when a new range is launched (http://www.inclusiveinternationalcalls.com/iicalls-terms-and-conditions). This is because individual network contracts can vary and while an international call can be inclusive on 99% of contracts specific to a mobile network, the network may charge the other 1%. There is no way to know until you make a test call. If the range is not using your inclusive minutes, then please let us know and we will endeavour to find you an alternative inclusive range. Many Thanks. The IICalls Technical Team

3 Months In...

Posted on Dec 27,2011 By Admin

So we launched exactly three months ago today. And what a busy period it has been for IICalls. Firstly, let us wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Thank you very much to our loyal customers. We hope that you enjoy the benefits of the FREE service we bring you, and that we can count on you to spread the word to your family and friends. You have certainly kept our engineers busy! Thank you for your kind words of support and feedback. This only spurs us on to make our service levels even higher. Currently, we have ranges that service 80% of the UK mobile network. That is not bad after only 3 months! And we are hoping to get this to 100% as we are in negotiations with several network providers to get access to even more ranges. Please see the blog for latest news on ranges. Remember, if we do not have an access number for your network/destination yet, we will automatically send you an SMS and email when this status changes. So it is very important to ensure we have the correct contact details for you. Many thanks, and here's to another successful few months on our journey ahead to ensure FREE international calls for all! Best Wishes The IICalls Team

Three Range - Latest

Posted on Dec 27,2011 By Admin

For the last month. we have managed to do the impossible. We managed to bring our customers a working Three range that utilised their inclusive minutes so that they were able to make free international calls. Unfortunately, the range has temporarily stopped working due to circumstances beyond our control. We apologise to our customers but we are doing our best to resolve this. If we have cracked it once, you can be sure we will crack it again. Watch this space for updates... The IICalls Technical Team

Difference Between 3G and 4G Technologies

Posted on Dec 20,2011 By Admin

3G is currently the world’s best connection method when it comes to mobile phones, and especially mobile Internet. Its simultaneous use of speech and data services and offers data rates of up to 14 Mbps downlink and 5 Mbps uplink. While 4G is the fourth and the next generation of mobile telecommunication standards, its infrastructure will be only packet-based (all-IP). 4G will probably combine 3G, GSM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and VoIP. 4G speeds are meant to exceed that of 3G. Current 3G speeds are topped out at 14Mbps downlink and 5.8Mbps up-link. To be able to qualify as a 4G technology, speeds of up to 100Mbps must be reached for a moving user and 1Gbps for a stationary user. So far, these speeds are only reachable with wired LANs. In short, 3G is a mix of circuit and packet switching network while 4G is only a packet switching network.
