No UK add-on?

I tried to get a UK add-on, but when selecting United Kingdom, the rates are not displayed, and there is no option to add it. Does this mean a UK add-on is not available at the moment? I see rates for Ireland, France, nothing for UK.

    Always the best reliable thing is to buy a SIM car when you land in UK. At this airport I will be kioskes who can give the best sim for Roy needs and your phone. Even Fizz recommend it

    You’ll be travelling several months abroad?

    We recommend purchasing a local SIM card. This will give you access to better rates on data. Helpful tip: use messaging apps (whatsApp, Messenger...) to stay in touch on the road instead of calling and texting.

    It has been like that for some time.

    I don't know why. Maybe Fizz is negotiating some rates, but at the moment, there is NOTHING available.

    You can try contacting customer service agent, but not sure they will be able to help.

    One option could be to download the Fongo App on your phone, get a free local number and then buy some long distance credits with the app. It list the UK as $0.02/minute. Obviously this means you would be using some data, or connected to WiFi to make a call (I use the WiFi at home to make my calls usually).

    Hello, if you call the UK or any international number on an infrequent basis there are many calling apps you can install on mobile or add money to your Fizz 'wallet' and use a per-use service like 10-10-710 which adds their charges to your phone line, covered by your 'wallet'. Best of luck.

  • Thank you!

    Still no call pack available for the UK. I just added funds to my wallet and called a UK landline. The 10 dollars was drained in ~4 minutes. So it looks like it's around $2 a minute. Looks like I'll have to find another way.
