 How much does my operator charge for a call to a Direct Number?

Since Direct Numbers are not toll-free or premium numbers, a call to these numbers will cost the same as calling any national land- or fixed line number in your country. It could even be free, if included in your monthly tariff plan. In case you have chosen the Callback option, then the call will not be charged by your operator of course.

 What is the total cost of an International call I place using Manifone?

It consist of two components:
1) National part: from your mobile to the Direct Number. This will be billed by your operator, according to your tariff plan. See previous point!
2) International part: forwarding the call from the Direct Number to the International destination. It is billed by Manifone's latest International rates. If you chose the Callback option, then you will be billed a fixed callback connection fee (equivalent to a 60 secs call to your telephone at our standard rates), plus the combined per minute rates of the national callback rate plus the rate to the final destination.

 Will I get billed by Manifone if the International number I'm calling doesn't respond or rings busy?

No, you will not be billed. If you chose the Callback option, you will still get billed for the fixed callback part fee of your call.

 Will I get billed by my mobile phone operator if the International number I'm calling doesn't respond or rings busy?

No, you will not be billed.

No, it doesn't, as long as you use it periodically. We reserve the right to cancel accounts that didn't show any activity for the last 12 months. In this case, the remaining credit will be lost.

 Do you charge a connection fee?
