CallHome4Free was set up by Selwyn Moon following a conversation he had with a friend over dinner one night.
The friend in question had two sons living away from home at university, both of whom had Pay As You Go phones. The friend told Selwyn that sometimes he would go weeks without speaking to his boys and the excuses were ‘I had no credit’ or ‘I was waiting to get paid’.
The concept behind CallHome4Free was born and, as well as taking care of the issue of phone credit, the CallHome4Free solution also addressed the problems of flat batteries or loss of the handset altogether as calls can be made from any phone.
Whilst developing CallHome4free, the subject of emergency phone calls
was raised by a few businesses, parents and local charities. This led Selwyn to introduce the 080SOS service, which allows users to call several contacts simultaneously to increase the chances of someone picking up quickly in an emergency.
