Calling a Thai mobile from Australia


Scumbag
 Share

Recommended Posts

I have been searching for some time for the best and cheapest way of calling a Thai mobile (cell) phone from Australia. I now believe I have found it. The card available on CallThai charges 2.5c a minute and the line quality is excellent. You can buy as little as $20 at a time.

 

I have bought cards in the past that state that you can talk for x minutes but in reality you get nowhere near that. I tested out the Callthai card on a 40 minute call and the charges that they state are what was deducted from the available credit.

 

They charge in $US dollars (US$14.95 at the moment) and it takes a day or so to get your pin number. They state that after the initial verification future pin numbers are supplied immediately.

Just signed up with them and will post the results. Currently using Ezy Com and the line quality is shocking. Can hardly hear what teh girl is saying half the time.

Tried my CallThai card for the first time this morning at about 5.00am Melbourne time after getting a message from a BG(long Story) . I tried 11 (YES ELEVEN) times to get through and was told each time that "All circuits are busy, please try again, we apologise etc). Surely there can not be that many people calling Thailand from Australia at that time of the morning. Went back to my Ezycom account got through first time and the quality wasnt to bad this time.

 

As i've spent au$20.00 on the card i'll definately try it again but i'm very unimpressed with my first experience.

I get that message all the time calling from Canada and it doesn't matter what time I phone, morning, evening, afternoon or middle of the night. I suspect it is actually the long distance circuits on the Thai end. Too many of us phoning there at all hours of the day from all parts of the world. :Ass_Lick:

I get the 'network busy' very often when I call from Malaysia. Never had a problem from Australia including using the CallThai card. Perhaps there were some technical difficulties at the time you tried.

I'll try again tonight when I get a garbled message from my darling at some stupid ungodly f@cking hour of the morning which says please call me. I need to explain the concept of time differences to her.

Explain away to your hearts content Andy, but when she wants to call, it ain't going to make the slightest bit of difference. :Deadhorse:

 

Even in thailand, my girl would be on the phone to Mama or 'Seeter' at all times of the day / night, so why should I be any different? "I want speak you so I call. Is okay?"

A good one is SUPERSAVER phone card, available from 7/11. It gets you 400 minutes to a thai mobile for a $20 card. Line is good 95% of the time.

I don't buy out the bar, I buy the nightspot.

With the card from CallThai a 10 minute call will cost you 25 cents. For $3 you could talk for 120 minutes.

Calling from Australia I got lucky with a phone card available from most newsagents called IT'S GREEN CARD. I have been able to talk to the TG for an hour for little more than a dollar. Sometimes the quality is not a 100% but most of the time it's quite good. Anyway, it beats using the thieving bastards Telstra, where one gets charged a dollar a minute.

For those that feel safe useing there Credit Card on the Internet: I reccomend these sites. You can make calls for less than 0.07c a min excluding your personal call rate from your phone to the call center (Charged at your phone provider's rate). Cards start from as little as $5. So you can try them out then buy up big later.

 

I've used a couple different cards now. Asia Connect and Chats. Both were OK

I recently got up to scratch with the 21st century and now use VOIP through my ISP provider (TPG).

 

Untimed calls anywhere in Oz are 10 cents and calls to LOS are .0866 cents a minute with minimum call cost 10 cents. Line quality is good.

I just bought an Australian 'GoTalk' sim and it is 1/2c to Thai land line and 2.5c per minute to call a mobile, line is clear and have never had any issues with connecting.

I hope this is useful to you guys

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
