Mytello is a fantastic way to connect to long distance numbers around the world for pennies. I am a travel agent working from home in Canada and I use this service all the time. I type in my international phone number and get a local number to call within seconds. It really is that easy.
Wow! I wish I had discovered Mytello a long time ago. I cannot believe how little cost it is to make an international call. My siblings all live in the UK and I call anytime I feel like it now and can never believe how little it costs. Thanks, Mytello! You have made my life so much easier.
What can I say! I am simply amazed. Best prizes, best service, just awesome in one simple word. My Dad lives in Switzerland and regular landline calls are way to expensive, they'd literally just burst my budget. But mytello helps me to stay close in contact with Daddy, by offering incredible low prices.

Read more answers to common questions on making cheap calls to South Africa. In this guide we cover calling codes, rates, and how mytello works.
mytello uses dial-in numbers to reduce the cost of calling internationally. For example, if you have a relative in South Africa, instead of calling their phone number you would call a dial-in number within your country. Your call would then be connected to your relative in South Africa. The result is much cheaper calls to South Africa from your landline and cell phone.
The calling code (also known as the dialling code) for South Africa is +27 or 0027. Good to know, but with mytello you’ll never have to remember this, as we use a simple landline number to connect you to South Africa. You dial the dial in number, we connect you to South Africa and you save money on call costs.
