Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi, I'm getting posted to Germany in a month, can anybody give me any up to date info on best way to phone and text home to the uk? Thanks
     
  2. When phoning home from Germany it is necessary to get blithering drunk in the Naafi, then use 10pfg bits (cents now?) to ring your g/f.

    For best results, forget about the time difference and ring her at 2am.

    That's what I always used to do anyway.

  3. Get Skype as all the camps now have wifinity. If you have a smartphone its free. Or get Whatsapp thats also free. Also you will break up with your girlfriend in about 2 months.

    You will be too drunk to operate anything as complicated as a 'phone and the vultures are already circling in anticipation of your girl friend dumping you.

  5. I just need useful info on the phone contract not relationship advice! Thanks... No bitter relationship comments
     
  6. You can hardly call that advice. It's more like a prediction. :)

  7. Simple advice....

    Do NOT get any contract phone in Germany! Get a Pre Paid card and stick with it...There are many different deals here and it's up to you to choose which suits.
     
  8. You don't need a phone. Your mrs is going to leave you because this will be you after a couple of months in Germany. Would YOU talk to that?

    No. Of course you wouldn't.

  14. Personally, because they speak a different language, I always found it easier to just press the numbered buttons on the phone, listen in the earpiece and speak in the mouthpiece. Always seemed to work for me !
