We give you at-cost SMS/Voice — no markup.

We make no profit from calling activity — just a tiny €1/month support donation from users which helps to keep the servers running. These wholesale rates are deducted without any markup from your Pay-as-you-Go balance when using SichboPhone.

Everything is always in Euros because that's what our telco provider uses. For your convenience you can estimate rates for some other currencies below.

EUR (actual) AUD CAD GBP NZD USD

Estimate pricing shown below for AUD at a rate of 1.6425. This should be reasonably close to PayPal's standard "Forex rate + 2.5%".

To my fellow vegimite loving Aussies — I don't know why it's so friggen expensive for Australia compared to other countries. I'm half considering implementing a whole additional Telco provider just for you, which would be more like USD$6/mo for a number, instead of €10. I'll do it if a couple people ask for it, so let me know if you're interested.

* What's up with the min/max rates?

For any given country there are sometimes different rates depending on the phone number you're calling. We've taken the lowest and highest possible values so you can see them. Some countries have no change across networks.

** Texts are billed per 160 bytes

There is an outrageous artificial and unnecessary 160 byte limit to SMS messages imposed by mobile networks, which means if you write a long text or use a bunch of unicode emojis a single message gets billed as multiple units.

Whadya reckon?

Simon's not psychic — throw him a bone?

This isn't some lame sleazy sales pitch, nor is it going to ask you to enter anything... just trying to figure out what people think about the app.

All country calling/texting rates

Regardless of which country your rented number is from, these are the rates you're changed when placing an outbound call to another destination country.
