International Calls

By: John Smith

International call - is a call between nations, or in other words when you call from your country to a neighbor country (from Poland to Germany for instance).

International calls can be long distant and short distant, but when we call other party - we usually don't notice that unless the connection is noisy or creaking.

Standard phone services provide us with the means of calling any place in the world - but it can be quite expensive. Actually it depends on how much time one spends per call, and the quantity of international calls per month.

You may use standard call services, but besides them - there is an alternate of calling - using prepaid phone cards.

When you purchase such card, the card is pre-charged with a value of call credit which is usually the same as that of the card value. (Sometimes cards may give extra value such as a $25 for $20).

Callers can then use the card to call from almost any touch tone telephone to call either domestic (local) or International.

Because cards are pre-paid, phone card producers are able to purchase 'minutes' in bulk from line carriers such as Deutche Telecom, WorldCom, Verizon and so on. Purchasing in bulk means savings, and these savings are passed onto the phone card user.

Normally, callers can save over 80% over a standard dialing service on international calls and in some cases over 90%.

Money saving - is one the attractive features of prepaid phone card - thus making them very popular for making international calls for cheap.
