Our son is shifting away next year, what's the cheapest way to talk?

What are those phone cardy things?
Should we be "best friends" on mobile?

I am just hoping that someone else has done their homework and will share the info with me. :D

Thanks... in advance

Bye

We are with Telecom and for $10 a month have unlimited communications between the cell phone and our home landline. We use much more than the $10 worth of calls :D

Assuming your son is staying within NZ one of the 'friends circles' plans allows free calls between desigated phones. Another option is to establish an 0800 or 0508 number 'pointed' at your home landline so he can phone you for free from anywhere (in NZ) with you picking up the tab.

If you have either a very good dialup connection or broadband, then skype is the cheapest - it is free for skype to skype and you can do the odd video link as well.

Heard a woman on the radio the other day saying that Orcon with VOIP was the cheapest. Haven't gone there myself so just a suggestion to look into.

I'd definately go for Skype (also allows you to check on the state of the bedroom, his washing, eating habits etc!!! ) but I have one free best mate on Vodafone mobile which I use when my girls so to their dads place.. don't pay a thing for it and I can now have it onto any network..

Skype. Definately!

Computer to computer it is free and you can talk as long as you wish! Im calling Australia at least 3 times a week to talk to Mum. We are both on Skype via computer and talk for hours!

Computer to landline costs a little bit and computer to mobile costs more. I cant remember the exact rate within NZ.

International to NZ: 0.03c per minute to landlines and 0.44c per minute to mobiles.

All you need for skype via computer is that you are both signed into Skype and have a suitable headset so you can speak and hear.

Skype phone is great as well. It doesnt cost much per month (you get to choose how much you want to put into the account and work with that) and the number travels where ever you go; meaning you can have an Auckland Skype phone number and still be contacted on it in Thailand via your laptop computer.
It can be contacted by landline, mobile phone or computer callers.

Skype conference calls allows more than one person to be contacted in the same call.

I'd be lost without Skype. We have one laptop signed into Skype nearly all the time and it receives either skype phone or text or computer to computer calls.

Only glitch is that you need internet connection at a reasonable speed to operate successfully.
