Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is Text4Calls?

Text4Calls allows you to make free international calls by sending text messages to special top-up numbers that are inclusive in your mobile text message bundle. The more messages you send the more free internationals calls you will be able to make.


2. How does this service work?

This is a very simple service. You text REAL text messages to our special top-up numbers and you will earn FREE calling credit. The text messages will be free to send as they should be inclusive in your mobile phone bundle, and the international call will be free too. You can't lose.


3. How many text messages do I need to send to make free international calls?

Who doesn't want to make free international calls? Because of how popular this service is proving to be, we have to very strictly control fair usage so as many customers can enjoy free international calls as possible. There are strict limits in place. Any single customer can send a maximum of 100 text messages in a 24-hour period. If you send any more than this, will not receive any further calling credit for text messages more than 100.


4. Is It really 100% FREE?

Yes. It really is 100% free. If you have inclusive text messages in your mobile contract then you can use them to make free international calls. And the more text messages you send, the more free calling credit you will earn. Text4Calls will never charge you a single penny. We always recommend that you send regular test texts just to ensure you are not being charged by your network.


5. Why am I not getting call credits for my text messages sent?

Our service has been designed to give customers free international calling credit for send real text messages to our special top-up numbers. If you aren't getting free minutes for your text messages, then one of the following is happening:

  • Sending text messages to the same top-up number will be treated as spam and you won't earn any minutes - always make sure you only text the top-up numbers in My Account as these change every day.
  • Sending the same message over and over again to the same number will be treated as spam and you won't earn any minutes.
  • Sending a message that doesn't make sense (e.g. 'hdjshhdsdik') will also be treated as spam and you won't earn any minutes.


6. What happens if I run out of inclusive text messages and do not know about it? Will I still be able to send text messages?

Yes, you will still be able to send text messages to our top-up numbers but your network may charge you at your out-of-bundle standard cost for sending text messages. So it's important to remember to keep track of your remaining inclusive text messages so that you do not get an unexpected bill at the end of the month.
