For US$ 5.00 get cheap international calls

By: T-Marco September 22nd, 2008

T-Mobile just introduced the new add-on discount for international calls. For only 5 bucks more in your monthly plan, you will get really good prices when you call your aunt or second girlfriend you just met in Europe after spending 5 hours chatting. Yes, T-Mobile has just reduced almost 1/3 of the rates in international calls. For example, to call UK (London) the regular price without the add-on is 34 cents, with the discount, it will cost now 6 cents to call a landline or 0.26 cents to call mobile. While, if you have T-Mobile@Home service, it will cost you even cheaper; 0.5 cents for a landline and 0.25 cents for a mobile. If you make constantly international calls, this add-on will be a good choice to reduce your international expense in 1/3.

    There’s a nasty flip side to this new “discounted international calling” feature. And that is that for some countries, such as Luxembourg (one of the most central countries of Europe, albeit a small one), the price without the plan hiked way over 500% (from about 30 cents per min to $1.64)!! .. And all this happened without Tmobile giving any notice.

    And for me it just happened that some in my family moved to Luxembourg a while ago and I was stupid enough (as the Tmobile customer rep implied) to have called them without first checking the price of calling (which I had a couple of months back). .. And for a 42 minute call was charged nearly $70!!

    I think this is legalized robbery _and_ holding hostage (as I can’t leave Tmobile because of the stupid 2 year contract (which in it self is another incredible oddity of the “free market” — as I haven’t even bought my phone through Tmobile and thus haven’t been subsidized by them!)

    Should someone reading this know of a class action suit or any consumer action against Tmobile, please send me a note to tmobile (at) .

    It has been a while that I have been making calls through the same software that you are talking about in this post. Not that many of the people around me like to use this software for making international calls.
