Is this the only way to top up credit, l_montvila, or can we top up in a 'normal' way?

From its site:

Can I buy credit without buying the calling card each time?
To be able to call to 50+ countries free from per minute charge customers need to pay membership fee that included with each card. There is no separate calling credit card and membership card, therefore no validity limit on credit or membership.

Hummm... The real per call rate is:

- Silver card: € 1.00 / ˘ 0,039 ~= 25,64 calls | € 2.99 / 25,64 ~= ˘ 0.117 per call

- Gold card: € 2.50 / ˘ 0,039 ~= 64,10 calls | € 6.99 / 64,10 ~= ˘ 0.109 per call

And for comparison with VB Pro using the €10 deal which gives you €5 credit, and therefore costs €5 for a year of calls:

1 call a week: 52 calls for €5 plus 3.9c/call = 13.5 cents per call
2 calls a week: 104 calls for €5 plus 3.9c/call = 8.7 cents per call
10 calls a week: 520 calls for €5 plus 3.9c/call = 4.9 cents per call
Best price trends towards 3.9 cents per call

In other words, make more than 1 call a week and you're better off on VB Pro. Make 1 call or less each week, and you're probably better off with Nadiz. And if you make even fewer calls to paid destinations, like I do, then you're better off just paying for each call

Same equation to VB:

- First time top up: € 5.00 / ˘ 0.039 ~= 128.20 calls | € 10.00 / 128.20 ~= ˘ 0.078 per call
- Nexts top ups: ˘ 0.039 per call

Much simpler, true, but what if you don't use your 128 calls in the first year? That's when Nadiz could be cheaper...

Cheaper is important, but not the only point!

What I like the most is that now we have 2 similar alternatives. What's better for everyone.
