Think it’s not possible to get unlimited free minutes on PAYG? Even though it’s much harder to get unlimited calls than unlimited texts, there are actually several options. This page describes the best ways to get unlimited calls on PAYG phones in the UK.
Undoubtedly the best PAYG network for free calls is Giffgaff. Order a free SIM with £5 free credit and not only do you get free texts to all other Giffgaff customers, but you also get unlimited free calls to any other Giffgaff customer. All freephone numbers are also free to call.
Don’t delay, get a free Giffgaff SIM with unlimited free calls now and get £5 free credit.
TalkMobile might be a bit of a cheat to include here but it does have a really good deal if you need unlimited minutes. For £30.64 per month, you can subscribe to their SIM-only rolling contract SIMpleunlimited deal. This includes in the price unlimited UK minutes and unlimited texts. The only issue (apart from this technically being a monthly contract) is that the “unlimited” call allowance is subject to a fair use policy of 3000 minutes per monthly bill cycle and each call can also only have a maximum length of 60 minutes. Standard call rates apply to calls exceeding 60 minutes. Still, it’s easily one of the best unlimited calls deals going.
O2 also has some pretty good deals for unlimited free calls on PAYG once you get a free SIM. If you choose their “Favourite Place” plan you get unlimited free minutes to standard UK landlines and O2 mobiles from your chosen postcode when you top-up £30 a month. The “O2 Unlimited” tariff gives you unlimited calls to all O2 mobiles as long as you top-up at least £10.
T-Mobile’s offer for free calls isn’t as good but once you’ve received your free SIM you can use their “Weekend Talk” reward – if you top-up £10 between Monday to Friday and text “weekend talk” to 441, you get free unlimited calls to other T-Mobile customers all weekend.

PAYG Orange customers can’t get unlimited free calls along with their free SIM. However, if you call 450, you can nominate three “Magic Numbers” which allows you to talk to friends and family on Orange for only 20p for an hour. Not quite free but still super cheap.

Delight Mobile offer customers free calls (and unlimited texts) to any Delight Mobile number every time you top-up. Adding £5 of credit entitles you to a week of free calls and texts. £10 give your two weeks and £20 or more topped up automatically provides you with 4 weeks of free Delight to Delight calls and texts.

For international calls, LycaMobile seems to have a good deal on its LycaMobile Plus tariff. It claims that all calls to other LycaMobile Plus numbers are completely free. However, this only applies to foreign numbers, not UK ones. Even worse, there’s a 15p connection charge for every call and calls a limited to only 30 minutes before they are charged at the standard rate. So it seems that it’s not exactly “unlimited free calls”. But still, calls to international mobiles at 0.5p/minute with LycaMobile is still great value.

An interesting choice is the new network OVIVO Mobile. They certainly have one of the most enticing tariffs available as you get calls and texts completely free each month. You also get a free data allowance in exchange for watching adverts.
OVIVO will also give you completely free calls at all times to other OVIVO users. This is a great way to make as much calls as you like for free. The only catch is that they’ll automatically disconnect your call if you take longer than an hour but you can always just call back again.
