When I said "only available to users in the US" I meant "only available
to US users", i.e. users with an address and phone number in the US.
Where you are physically when you make the call is irrelevant.

Apologies for the top posts, gmail insist on top posting reponses and I forget to adjust.

FWIW you can give https://www.asterisk.org/ a try and DIY a phone server.  The VOIP would give you the mobile option because I used it an age ago (headset and my laptop were my "phone" with any internet connection).  Any calls to numbers would bill from server to client for purpose of long distance; i.e. you home base in England (server) go to France and call a client in Japan.  Your calls to England home office, gratis.  France to Japan would be billed from England -> Japan.  There are ways to mitigate expense if not reduce to zero altogether if memory serves.  It has been ages since I used this last but the project is still going strong and OS.  File transfers can be handled through any number of online fileshare option, rather previlent these days.
