The legal bit
* The price of the service charge is determined by the service company you are calling. For information on these charges please visit our Calling Service Numbers page.
If there is a conflict between the pricing and plan information in the Charges Guide and the pricing and plan information on the Talkmobile website then, the pricing and plan information on the Talkmobile website shall take priority.
Some devices may be locked to the Talkmobile network.
All standard UK call charges including voicemail within your plan’s allowance are charged for by the second.
All standard UK call charges outside of your plan’s allowance are charged for by the second with a 1 minute minimum call charge.
Due to the way our technology works, the start time of your calls made may differ slightly to the times reflected within your bill.
Sometimes you might find you lose signal when you're making a call. Even though you might not be able to hear anything, the call will continue while we try to re-establish the connection. Typically this lasts only a few seconds but you will be charged during this time. If your call doesn't reconnect, please make sure you have hung up to avoid unexpected charges.
Features or apps on your phone are active when your phone is running, even if you’re not actively using them. Take a look at your phone guide for more information. Please be aware that any data usage will be charged, either by being deducted from your monthly allowances or by being separately billed. To find out more about data and how you can keep data costs down, take a look at our section on data costs.
If you’re sending texts over 160 characters long, we’ll sometimes charge for them as two or more separate texts, displayed on the bill as being sent at the same time.
Near a border?
If you’re near a border, from time to time your phone might pick up the neighbouring country's network and start using it without you realising. UK based customers may notice this near the Irish border in particular. To avoid unexpected charges, keep an eye on the phone company name displayed on your phone.
