Ratings and Reviews
It’s overall ok, easy to call and connect. Only thing I don’t like is when you have 30 seconds remaining it interrupts you to tell you the credit is running out then most times after that voice prompt I can’t hear the other person I’m talking to at all. It’s quiet for the rest of the 30 seconds which is annoying. Lately it had begun to just cut soon after that voice prompt. Today the voice prompt came but I was able to continue with my conversation. Tesco calling card need to look into this issue and be consistent- it’s my money wasted on those 30 seconds . I’ve been using this card for the past few years but if I find a better one I’ll easily jump ship if you don’t fix this issue lol. I saw planet talk app the other day ;)
Very Poor Service deduct money without speaking
Tesco international calling is not fit for purpose. Most times no connection to the other side and it will still deduct money and when contact customer service by the time they poor questioning and which is unnecessary, you are even more frustrated. As such even when you loose money you cannot be bothered to contact them. The Apps is the reason am still hanging on , hoping they will improve and stop the act of deducting money when no connection of communication is made, it is in my humble opinion criminal to pay money to none existence service. Thus it should be only when I connect and start talking that I should pay not the other way round.
Updates killed the functionality of this app
I used to enjoy using this app, easy to use and save me the hassle of having two phones. I use it majorly to call NIGERIA, however the recent update has made the functionally of this app unbearable. Before I’m able to make a call on the app and switch apps without any interruptions, unfortunately now I can’t, whenever I switch app the call goes mute or unresponsive. Even if I switch back I won’t be able to hear the other person and I will be forced to end the call. I’m guessing this is a bug and it can be fixed with an update.
