Phone Cards: The Basics

Phone cards are the cheapest way for international students to call home (except IP Phones). You can use phone cards from your home, from payphones, or from cell phones (in most cases). Phone cards can also be used from your home phone without changing your registered local or long distance carrier.

However, the "con" of using phone cards is that, before you dial your destination number, you need to dial a special 1-800 number and a long "PIN" number. Despite the inconvenience, phone cards are the most popular way for international students to call home, because of their low cost. So, in the next five minutes, let's learn the three basic things you must know about phone cards before you start using them:

  1. How to choose phone cards: There are many, many calling card companies offering cheap rates, due to the deregulated environment.
