The way I've had it explained to me about send to end billing is this: From the time you hit send you have the possibility of incurring a charge. If the number that you call answers you are charged from then and also the time before they answered until the network releases your call (probably a couple seconds after you disconnect.) However, you will not be charged at all if the number you are calling is busy or does not answer. In other words you will only be charged on answered calls, but you will also be billed for the "setup" time i.e. the ringing time in addition to the time you actually talk with the person. As for timers GSM phones only time from when an actual "supervised" connect occurs. By supervised I mean that an actual billable connection is made. That's why if you call a number and the line is busy or doesn't answer your timer won't budge. GSM has the capability to bill even right down to the second. and do bill from answer to disconnect. It's only the carrier who has configured their billing to bill from send to end. Most European carriers bill by the second and only bill from answer to disconnect.

so when i hit send. then it rings, then noone answers and i let it ring for say. 15 sec and then hang up, then it doesnt count???
if it starts counting from the second i hit send, then whats the point og my timer if it starts when someone picks up?? cause i usaully hang up when its 55-59 sec on the timer so i wont get charged morre then 1 minute.
so its is suppose to be lets say my timer says 15 sec when i hang up after my call.... it rang for 15 sec before the person answered..so 15+15= 30 seconds total??
