Asterix can be fun to play with but there's a steep enough learning curve. I'd reiterate what others have said about getting a UK based VOIP number. Hang a SIP phone off the server in the UK in your parents' house and get them another SIP account and they'll be able to call you free (most SIP providers provide free SIP to SIP calls, certainly within their own customer base).

Sadly, no - depending on your value of reasonable, of course. The problem is the termination fees levied by mobile carriers here, such that you're unlikely to be able to terminate calls for a single digit number of cents per minute.
