Calling Card Recommendations

I’ve been using this card for a year or two now and it’s a good way to get the most out of your cellphone minutes if you want to call outside the USA or make a call on a payphone at an airport.

What calling card to use?

I personally use and recommend a calling card from Net2Phone, the Net2Phone Direct® Calling Card. I like this card cos it has no connection fee and US rates are 3.9c per min with 5c per min to Europe. It has a nice web interface and you can also set it up to auto renew when your balance drops below a certain dollar amount.

The fine print

*3.9¢ domestic rate and 5¢ international rate available in select metro areas with local access numbers. Higher rates apply using toll-free access. Rates subject to change without notice. There is a $1.49 monthly service charge. Surcharges may apply for calls made from a cellular phone or a payphone, or for calls made from outside the continental United States. Minimum $25 purchase of calling card with credit or debit card required.

I just looked at my billing history and I seem to get 3.9c per min sometimes 4c calling from my cellphone when calling within the US so they don’t appear to be charging me a surcharge because I am using a cellphone. There is also a $1.50 fee per month deducted from the card. This is not as bad as it sounds as other cards will slap you with a 49c connection fee per call so I think it’s better to have pay the once off fee per month than per call connection fees. The will also send you a physical calling card that you can carry in your wallet or purse and use at any payphone. This is also quite handy when ye old cellphone dies or you have no service but are near a good old payphone.
