Local Access Numbers

To get the best possible calling rates from your Easy Talk phone card, use the local access number for your area.

What's a local access number?

The local access number is a number within your free local calling area and is a number you can dial without using an area code. It is a free call from a residential phone line.

What if I can't dial a local access number free of charge/without using the area code?

The national convenience number 014 123* is your alternative access number, if you cannot call a local access number free of charge. 014 123* can be called from anywhere in the country. 

* Incurs a 2c surcharge per minute.
