Cheap International Cell Phone Calls

Even if you don't use it very often, having the ability to make international calls from your cell phone while on the road can be very useful. Perhaps you have a relative overseas, or need to make travel arrangements, either way, you probably think twice before making that call with your cell phone. It's not surprising. AT&T charge 79c per minute for calls placed to Canada (or 59c if you are on their World Traveler Rates). How about if I told you that you could make the same calls, with the same quality of service for 2.4c per minute?

It's not a joke or a con. There's a company that I've been using since 2006 called Tel3 which offers cheap international calls. The beauty is that you can make these calls from your cell phone. Simply dial a toll-free access number, then type in the number you're calling and you get connected, it's that simple! There's no PIN's to enter and you can even set up your own speed-dials for frequently used numbers. When you run out, they simply re-charge your account automatically with your credit card. I love them! Think about it. 5.8c a minute to Mexico, 3.1c a minute to Hawaii, from your cell.
