Review from P rob
Great app This works great as it allows you to make calls using your BT calling plan from your mobile phone using Wi-Fi also if you are abroad & can connect to a free Wi-Fi signal you can call home to the UK & the calls are charged as if you are in the UK with no expensive roaming charges.
Great app Just read all the comments and must admit I had a slight issue setting it up but just logged online and adjusted settings. The app is great. My boy lives in Ireland and I have discount via my landline so it's great that I can be out and about and still call him without worrying about paying international mobile calls fees. The app has got loads better and is far more stable than it initially was.
Makes BT WiFi App look good I thought they couldn't make anything worse than BT WiFi but I was wrong. Do not expect to be able go use this app if you swap from the original handset you had - it will not work. There is no option to select 'I changed my device'. You MUST go via the website and delete your ID which takes 24hrs. Then you need to start over with activation process. This means being at home because they use your landline for authentication codes. So if you are on holiday you are stuffed. Well done BT.
Smart talk? Cannot end calls as screen goes grey. Have looked on forums for a solution and not even BT have replied on their own website. I have to go into app programme and tap force stop. Great idea but poor App. BT sort it out!!! Update: 30/09/16 Nothing has changed. If you use your phone to ring a company that has an automated service, the screen is blank so you cannot make a selection. What a load of pony. Great idea poor service.
Firstly it wouldn't sync with my home phone for reasons which were not listed in the FAQ so I had to uninstall it and try again with another number as I have two landlines. Other people mostly won't have two numbers so will get no further. But it ruined my mobile. The app wouldn't close without using "force stop" and even then it slowed everything to a crawl. I have uninstalled it. What a heap of ****
It's Good, But... This is a brilliant idea, and could be a fabulous App, but it does depend on the quality of your internet coverage... and unfortunately in rural areas broadband connections are still fairly poor. Nevertheless, as my mobile provider has an even WORSE coverage it's a lot better than nothing!!!
Poor customer service from BT This is a good app when it works however I changed my phone and went through the process of installing. Had to change my sim as the new phone needed the micro SIM. Spent an hour on the phone with BT and they kept saying my case has be upgraded to the smarttalk team and someboby will call me back. Have heard from them. This has happened twice and still have not had a call. Very very poor service.
