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:
