I just returned from visiting my family and friends in Indiana, USA. Thanks to emails, and cheap international phone calls from my rural old farm house in Indiana, I was able stay on top of my Dawn on the Amazon businesses, and enhance my long distance romance with Marmelita in Iquitos Peru, 2,500 miles away.
This tip goes out from my good friend Mark Parsons who told me about the AT&T World Wide PrePaid Phone Card. The $10 card gets you 98 minutes. I used all the minutes on two of them in 26 days. I had to dial 36 numbers. Unlike other phone cards I have used you do not loose minutes for incorrect dialing or if your party is not home.
Two times I checked my emails at Mom’s house and there were business emergencies in Iquitos Peru that needed dealing with immediately and I didn’t have my phone card so I made the calls from Mom’s. Those two phone calls cost $200, versus the dozens of phone calls I made using the two phone cards for $20.
What is your choice to use for cheap long distance phone calls when there is no high speed internet?
