FAQ – Getting Started with ChilliTalk

What is ChilliTalk?

ChilliTalk offers you a way of making international calls at really cheap rates. With ChilliTalk you can:

- Call from any phone using a local access number for each friend or family member living abroad. When you dial this number you only pay your operator’s normal rate for a local call (or use your inclusive minutes). We then only charge you a small fee for the international part of the call.

- Download our app which enables you to make calls over 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi. You can call any phone in the world, and if your friends are also on ChilliTalk you can call each other for free! Read more about our apps here.
