Thanks, I guestimated by looking at some of the inclusive call packages available
Does anybody remember:
Handwriting a letter,
Placing it in an envelope,
Walking to the post office and buying a stamp,
Posting the letter in a pillar box.
Things were so much easier in those days.
I still have the letters sent from the Phils by my first wife... back in 1990. Airmail of course.
The 'round trip' of our letters took about a month. Even in the early 90s, it cost a pound a minute for a phone call to the Phils... first 5 minutes taken up by excited Tagalog chatter from friends or relatives... determining whether or not your loved one was actually at home or not... if they'd figured out you weren't a Martian or summat, causing that strange object in the corner to ring out.
At least letters (with photos) were a lot more convincing, and easier to show the Entry Officer, than a bundle of chat logs and emails.
When was the last time you recieved a holiay postcard?
who can afford a postage stamp any more ?
What' a postage stamp?
most paper mail i get is junk.
Same for e-mail.
Agree that FaceTime works well here. I chat with my daughter in UK each weekend for about an hour. Always good quality, no drop outs.
I suggest that you get Vonage and send her the Vonage box that will plug into her router - that will recognise the line as a UK line, and then you can call her for free.
Yes, but she will still have to pay for the internet connection, so may not be too expensive, but not free.
