I agree with you Kilkis. Now EU legislation has stopped roaming charges, the only way to find out the true cost is to look up the information re your own provider. Unfortunately there has been some misunderstanding by people that no roaming charges means cheaper calls all round.

I have no idea why the lady is France I referred to didn't just check with her own provider.....but some people are more comfortable asking an 'expert.'

I use the same method as Fillippos!

I also use Skype BUT, strangely enough, in the period leading up to full abolition of roaming charges the rates being charged by Virgin meant that it was cheaper to phone the UK on my Virgin SIM than it was on Skype. Now it is cheaper on Skype. I mostly use it for Skype-to-Skype calls which are free, at least for now. I doubt that will last for ever.
