@JaneDomani:  Use Skype. Very effective for overseas calls and cheap.

All the international students use skype now adays. If you have a mike on your comp you could use that.

all you need is an internet connection. I use  Skype on my iphone and make normal calls, just make sure your wireless connection is strong!

I use a calling card that i purchase from Walgreens as it is the best amount of mins for the $$.  (not sure what it is called but is is a Green International Calling card). 

Skype is great as another PP said BUT that only works IF your guests use it and are online when your calling them. 

I would go ahead and call them.  Good luck

@Angkinah:  you can call regular phones with Skype – it’s not free but it’s usually cheaper than using your mobile phone.

you can call regular phones with skype. Rates are much cheaper. You need to buy skype credit.

Skype is totally the way to go!  It’s so much cheaper than phone cards.  I’ve lived overseas twice and have always used skype to call home.

I agree with you most of the times about Skype (and I use it all the time as my family lives overseas) – BUT I lose connection with Skype way too often so for those ‘important’ calls I use the calling card!

Google Voice is another option. 2 cents a minute to land-lines and 4 cents a minute to cellphones. Of course, you need to buy credit. I put in $10 a year ago and I’m still only at $6.72
