You have a million things on twenty different To Do Lists. You have boxes and suitcases everywhere, you have bills to sort out, routes to learn, people to meet, schools to sign up with, and the phone hasn’t been hooked up yet.
Or you’re still in transit, you have a few days before you’re at your final destination, but you need to be making arrangements, checking on things, keeping in touch with people and you don’t want to spend a fortune as you move across the planet.
Here’s the top tip: Get a phone card.
I’ve recently been given the opportunity to review a phone card from Nobelcom.com. What I liked about it was that it worked perfectly. What more could you ask for? It was easy to set up and I could use my computer or mobile phone. One needs to be careful not to press “call” on the cell phone after entering “the number you wish to call” or they might find themselves paying cell phone rates! Nobel Phone kindly warns you this could happen and therefore it is easily avoided. It seems pretty much the same as any phone card I have used in the past.
The customer support is 24/7, the rates are among the lowest in the industry and it is easy to top up online. To me, getting signed up with a phone card account is a really useful tip to remember when making that move or living in transit. Even when visiting home while living abroad because the rates are just so much cheaper than using your cell/mobile phone.
Anyone else have any experience with international phone cards?
