Want to use my cell phone to call international

by bdaly41 / September 4, 2008 4:58 AM PDT

Hello, I have a question. I have a Verizon samsung sch-a930 cell phone and I was looking into using it to make international calls to Ireland from the U.S.A. were my cell phone service (Verizon) is. I was think of using a pre-paid phone card, but will this work and how will this affect my minutes, I have free nights and weekends and would be planning on calling on the weekend. The cell phone is a locked phone. Is a pre-paid card the way to go or is there another way to go about this. Thank you.

Call India at low cost
by willdrew81 / October 9, 2009 1:07 AM PDT


I have some clients down there in India and it was costing me pretty high to call them. Then a Indian friend of mine referred me the calling card from Dial 91, which offers great deals at cheaper price. They have helped me in cutting down my operating expenses..

To call India from overseas, use Dial 91 calling cards...they are the best!!1

Look into rangeroamer. they are a small phone company that specializes in international calls and texts. They let you use your own phone with their plan. plus its way cheaper than verisons international charges.
