New Service – how to reduce call costs to UK mobiles!
Many clients complain that calls to UK mobiles are not included in their tariff and they suffer from high excess call charges.
I can show you, using apps that can be installed on ipads, tablets and smart phones, how to keep in touch with friends and family in the UK – at no extra cost.
For 25€ ! will install and demonstrate, on your equipment, exactly how this works – get in touch for more info!
In France with a UK mobile? Contact me via WhatsApp – simply add my mobile number to your address book and use your data plan instead of your call minutes.
It’s also easier for me to contact you!
Please do not forget that I am a small business and earn my living advising/supplying and installing.
Please do not expect my services for free – I have a family to feed!
I spend many hours researching my products/services and just recently I have been contacted by a small number of ‘clients’ via email and phone, some have even arranged on-site appointments, where I have been expected to pass on my knowledge for the home owner to complete the task without any recompense!
