Instant Prepaid Phone Cards

12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

:D A great site for instant prepaid phonecards is http://www.pinonsale.com They have special rates for phonecards to just about every country in the world. There cards are $5, $10, $20. An example I get a $5 Phone Card to call the Philippines and I usually get about 30 mins of talk time. For other countries it might be more mins or less mins. Just a little something to make things easier. :blush:

Oh yeah it is a good site and you get your card instantly, without having to leave the house :thumbs:

I don't know about www.noblecom.com but I do know that I have been using www.pinonsale.com for over 2 years now and I love it.....I mean i can have a phone card in less than 30 sec (information already programed). I tried the whole using Bellsouth and MCI and such and such......it cost me more than i would ever like to take credit for.

For those individuals who call the Philippines. Here is a really good site to go to. It is not for phone card but it is a company who charges $80 a month for unlimited talk time to your loved one in the Philippines. It is not a scam or anything like that. It is honest, I don't use it because my wife keeps breaking cell phones and you have to pay for the initial cell phone. http://www.pinoycalls.com there are some start-up fees but its worth it...if you talk alot

Better than using a calling card, is to use a card that subtracts from a prepaid amount (and you can recharge whenever and how much you want). Try www.wqn.com. It is excellent service.

For example, I recharge my "card" for $25, and get that amount of talk time. The advantages are (1) no connection fee (2) no maintaince fee (some of the calling cards have a weekly fee) and (3) you can call for 2 minutes, 5 minutes, whatever time you want. You don't have to worry about "losing" minutes becasue you are not using the complete $5 or $10 or whatever. (this is huge for me, I dont always talk to hubby for 30 minutes, sometimes it is just a one minute call).

I am charged only 13c per minute.

Hi Eric,

I will say, on rare occasions you get a scratchy line, or a delay-but it's rare. We've been using it close to a year now, and I have found it to be the best deal for me and Graham to speak usually 2x a day.

There's no fee. 2.2cents/min and most of the time a good line.
