Calling from your landline


You can make cheap international calls from your landline using our instant dial access numbers.

Simply dial the relevant access number for the country you wish to call and the call is connected to our network. When you hear the voice prompt, enter your international number starting with 00 and followed by the country code.

Your service provider will charge you for calling our access number at the advertised rate plus their access charge there are no charges direct from Call Happy. As you are charged for calling the access number, you will still incur a charge even if the international number you are calling is unavailable (busy, no answer or not connected).

Our instant dial access numbers work with all of the major landline and mobile service providers although and the rates advertised on our website apply to all providers but are subject to an access charge from your phone company. The access charge varies between phone companies, if unsure of charges please contact your phone company before making a call. We advise not to use our instant dial access numbers from your mobile phone as the charges are much higher. We would recommend using one if out top up services which are a more cost effective way of calling.

Calling from your mobile


Our SMS top-up service allows you to make cheap international calls from your mobile phone without having to change service providers.

To buy international calling credit, simply send a text message to our short code numbers and we will add the credit to your mobile phone. Your mobile service provider will charge you the price of the top-up (£1.50, £3, £5 or £10) plus the cost of a standard text message.

You can use your credit from another phone using the PIN that we provide (doesn't apply to credit bought using a Vodafone mobile).

When your credit runs out, simply send us another text message to purchase more credit or if your are using our Standard service you will be topped up automatically when your credit runs low (optional).

You can usually make a call within a few minutes of sending your top up request although it may sometimes take a little longer to process your request.

Once you have received a message from us confirming your top-up has been processed, you can use your international calling credit by dialling our 02 or 03 UK access numbers. Calls to these access numbers are charged by your mobile service provider at their standard UK rate or are part of your inclusive mobile minutes.

IMPORTANT: Once you have dialled your international number, do NOT press the green send button on your mobile phone as this will cause the international call to go via you mobile service provider and they will charge you for the call. We will not accept responsibility for any charges if this happens.

This service works with all of the major service providers except Virgin Mobile. If would like to make calls from other networks, please use our Paypal or telephone top up servces.
