anyone using M-Budget Mobile "My Country"

Hello Englishforum,

is anyone out there using M-Budget Mobile with the "My Country"-option activated?

Id love to have a piece of information, which even the helpdesk doesn't seem to know, so no way around trying. I hope Ill manage to find out anywhere short of registering a new card for myself.

So the actual question:
With "my country" calls to landlines in neighboring countries cost 3 Rappen/minute. Does this also apply when a call-divert to such numbers is in place?

Ive written to the helpdesk 4 times and got 4 different answers. So would love to know what actually happens.
  1. Yes, it's charged at 3 Rp./minute
  2. It's charged at a seperate call-divert rate of 28 Rp./minute
  3. Its charged at usual roaming rates (obvious bullsh*t)
  4. Diverts to foreign numbers are not possible

Rgds, Christian

Re: anyone using M-Budget Mobile "My Country"

>200 reads, but no-one can do this? Should only take a minute!

What's in it for you? Roaming, throughout the EU, at 3rp/minute (if it works the way I hope).

Here are detailed instructions on how-to:
  • Take a random "usual" fixed line number in Germany. For example 00493029760944 (German Train Service Info Line, some announcement picks up. Good enough to just hang up again after a few seconds, it won't bother anyone)
  • on your mobile, enter *#21*number# (call key)
  • so actually *#21*00493029760944# (call key)
    • anyone who calls your number will now be diverted to the German rail service
  • Take someone else's phone, ring your own number.
  • The call is established, you should hear the trainservice-announcement (thanks for calling... blabla...). Hangup once the call is established, few seconds are enough.
  • on your mobile, enter ##21# to cancel the divert, everything is back to normal
  • Last-but-not-least, check on M-Budget website how much they charged for the divert. It should be 28 Rappen or 3 Rappen - that's exactly what Im looking to find out: How much does this divert cost?

this should cost 3rp / minute. Didn't try, since I don't have M-budget.

But how can you get cheap EU roaming that way? You'd still need a number for destination country, right? And the call divert should be going to the destination country's number?
