Get Cheap International Calls

firstnumber is a service which allows you to make cheap international calls instantly.

To make a cheap international call from anywhere in the UK, all you need to do is dial the access number for the country you're about to call and at the prompt dial your destination phone number.

How you pay for the calls you make

When you use the firstnumber service to make your cheap international calls you only pay for calling one of the firstnumber access numbers. Your service provider will bill you - not us. For example, when you make a five minute call to Australia using our service from a BT phone it will cost 10p plus BT's connection charge*. The next time you receive your BT bill you will see a call to First Number's 0844 number, for a duration of 5 minutes and a charge of 17p with no charges by us.

Prices shown on this website are BT's charges per minute for calling the First Number access number. Charges are per second from connection to the firstnumber service.

* BT charges 9p connection for each call.

Terms and conditions

Callers must ensure they have the bill payer's permission before using the firstnumber service. All calls are billed by your telephone line provider at their appropriate 0871, 0844, and relevant 09 rates. Prices quoted are from a BT landline and are pence per minute, prices and availability may vary from other networks.

Calls are charged from time of connection to the firstnumber service, so we advise replacing the handset after a short period if your calls are engaged or unanswered. When you call from a mobile, remember to only press the call or send button after dialing the access number but not again after dialing the destination number.

Prices of calls to mobile phones, premium rate numbers and pagers are not included unless otherwise stated.
