Cherry Call Newsletter April 2012

Only penny a minute to call all these far-flung lands – have we gone stark staring mad?

Well I have to confess that, while I was eating my usual lunch out on the terrace of Cherry Towers (corned beef, beetroot and mustard on brown sliced, as you ask), the somewhat unseasonal sunshine did scorch the James pate a tad.

“You look like one of your beetroots, Robin!” mocked Loretta, my comely but spectacularly viper-tongued PA. So perhaps the old grey matter was a trifle well-done in places. But actual madness, no, not quite yet. And don’t harrumph like that, Loretta.

No, I have to confess that the idea to drop the price on all these call destinations to just a penny a minute came not from yours truly but from the aforementioned Ms L de Cerise herself.

There I was, deep in thought. How could I make our beloved Cherry Callers even happier? What could I do this fine spring morning to put a smile on their lips, a spring in their step and a daffodil in their buttonhole?

“Penny for them!” Said Loretta, rousing me from my cogitations (if that’s the word when one’s giving the noddle a bit of a workout). “What? Say that again, Loretta!”

“I said ‘Penny for them!’ You know, as in what are you so deep in thought about?”

“But that’s it!” I cried, leaping from my chair and banging my knee very hard on the corner of my genuine reproduction mahogany desk. “We’ll reduce the cost of calling a giant pile of countries to just a penny a minute. Brilliant idea, Loretta! Get onto the boffins at once and sort it out.” (I can be very masterful when I put my mind to it, I’ll have you know.)

And sort it out, they did. With Cherry Call you can now call every single last one of these countries for just a penny a minute. All day, every day, and for as long as you like:

But please make sure you use our NEW Cherry Call access numbers

Rather annoyingly if you’re a regular Cherry Caller, the boffins changed some of our special access codes in order to bring you these amazing savings. But feat not, a quick click below will whizz you to the Cherry website where you can get the new code numbers instantly if not sooner.

Probably not a bad idea to stick the new numbers into your Filofax, address book and speed dial thingies etc so you remember to use it every time you call one of these countries.

Ah yes, Loretta has just reminded me that not everyone uses Cherry Call already. So if it’s your first time, this is the SP:

  1. Click the link above to get the Cherry Call access number for the country you want to call
  2. Dial the number and you’ll hear a voice asking you to key in your normal international number
  3. Now just dial your FULL international number – not forgetting the international dialling code starting with 00
  4. When you’ve finished talking, just hang up as usual.

And when your bill arrives you’ll see the international call listed as the Cherry Call number you dialled first. What could be easier! I’ve said before, I’m sure, but sometimes the lovely Loretta isn’t quite as daft as she looks.
