Are call charges rounded up to the nearest second?

All calls are charged at one second intervals, so if you end a call part-way through a second, the time will be rounded up to the next second – for example, if a call lasts 44.5 seconds we’ll round it up to 45 seconds. We have to round up any device charges to the nearest penny as we’re unable to bill you for anything less than that. For example, if the cost of a call was £1.01005 we’ll round it up to £1.02.

What are the call charges for Pay as you go extra?

Calls to any standard UK & Home From Home numbers 15p/min
Texts to any standard UK & Home From Home numbers 5p/message

What happens if my device loses signal?

If for any reason you lose device reception while you’re on a call, for example when you go through a tunnel, you’ll continue to be charged for that call for up to 18 seconds.
