BT's new SmartTalk means you can take your landline anywhere
BT have got their knockers, but their new app could be an enormous boon for their customers (if they’ve got any left).
It’s called BT SmartTalk and allows you to access landline prices while you’re out of the house or even abroad. All you need to do is install the (iOS and Android) app, register your BT account on it and off you go – start chatting!
Apparently it works with wi-fi and/or 3G, giving you the chance to use it abroad, preferably if you’re on a wi-fi connection that you’re not paying as you go for.
In a nutshell, it’s your BT home phone package, stuffed inside your mobile and taken with you wherever you go. Of course, apps like Viber already allow you to make voice calls while you’re using your mobile online, but you can only use that to chat to other Viber users.
