    I've got Whistle. It's free and you can call anyone. You pay for it by listening to a twenty second ad before it dials your number. Well worth it.

    You don't actually pay for anything, unless you want to upgrade to ad-free.

    Don't know about it working in the UK, but free is free in the US anyway.

    There's a couple. Check the app store and navigate there. Whistle seems to work fine for US calling, even if you have to listen to an ad for the first 15-20 seconds. Other than that, there's a guy around the Carfax tower that lets you dial anyone on his phone. No iPad app, but still, free calling :D

    Whistle is ok, I used to use it before other options existed, and the ads they play can get annoying. Currently I use google voice tied into Talkatone (which is free to use), pretty awesome combo with no ads.
