Re: Not cheap on the other end though...
No, it's true.
Just because you don't know doesn't make it incorrect. So please don't comment on it.
Do you call anyone in Sweden? Sweden is at least one country that charges incoming calls on the landlines when called internationally. But mobile calls are not charged extra incoming.

Actually, I call Sweden quite often. I've also lived in Europe and have been to many countries in Europe and I have never heard of anyone being charged for incoming calls on their landlines.
I talked to my friend in Sweden for more than 2 hours sometimes (I usually call about 3x per month) and they have never once said that they are worried about their phone bill because I am the one calling them.
As for cell phones in Europe, the caller pays.

?? This was the case a long time ago - not anymore. Furthermore, you can't call mobile numbers for "free" on this plan because those countries in which you are charged extra for these calls have adopted "Caller Party Pays", unlike what exists in the US, Canada, China, and other places.
