Is "Talk More International Anytime" worth it?

On our wavelength

I was surprised in my last bill when being charged for calling a mobile number in France...

If I am right, most mobile phone deals provide this as part of the package so why am I being charged when I even add £10/month for international calls?...

Looks like I might be better off cancelling this and not using the landline...


Am I missing something?
