Anybody have experience of this network for international calls? seem very cheep, tried searching for what network they use but all they let on is you need a phone unlocked to all networks, does this mean the chop and change somehow?

Hi there Paul

I use them for calling Hong Kong and China alot for work....the network runs on the back of vodafones network

never had any issues with them myself, up to now tbh

an unlocked phone by its very nature, is unlocked to all networks, so i think its saying u need an unlocked phone, as their SIM wont work in a specific carrier locked phone (such as voda, o2 etc etc)

cheers

Vinny

Put card into phone looks like it might work, main screen opens ok with Lebara where it was vodaphone, Although upon first switching phone on vodaphone logo appears. Be great if it does work Vodaphone 35p a minute, Or Lebara 1.5p a minute a bit of a no brainer really.

The Vodafone logo at startup will be part of their branding of the phone and embedded in the firmware. The operator logo is the important one.
