Calls to isle of man from uk landline.

I have 'Talk more anytime'. Are calls to IOM included from uk landline. Also to mobiles and landlines in IOM. VM really needs to state more clearly.

Thanks

Re: Calls to isle of man from uk landline.

No they are not included. IOM is not part of the UK, so a call to the island is not a UK call. The only thing they share with us is the international dialling code, the same as the Channel Islands.

Calls to the Isle of Man are at standard rates though. That means the normal call rates used for UK landlines & mobiles, its just that they are not included in your package. This is in common with all other UK Telco providers.

Re: Calls to isle of man from uk landline.

Thanks for reply.  Do you have a link which states this?

I remember ringing VM about a year ago and they said calls to IOM landlines were included but not IOM mobiles.

I am going to ring them again. Let you know what that say.

Hi Ben,

Excludes indirect access, dial-up internet, other non-geographic numbers, 070 personal numbering, and 076 paging charge-bands. Re-dial before 60 minutes to avoid call charges. Calls over 60 minutes will be charged at standard rates, except for calls to mobiles which will be charged at 5p a minute. Charges apply outside of inclusive minutes. Fair usage policy applies. 0870 and 0845 numbers subject to a shared limit of 1000 minutes or 150 calls per rolling 30 day period.

Re: Calls to isle of man from uk landline.

I rang VM.  They didn't know for a while. Had to get 2nd and 3rd opinions. 

It appears you were right. If its only standard rate, then that's not to bad. You can get a £5 international bolt on which give you 50 minutes of international calling a day.

Thanks for help.

Re: Calls to isle of man from uk landline.

Hi Paul,

So 'Isle of man' is included in the 'talk time international' plan. It is not listed in the international  everyday charges. 

Thanks.
