An closer look into my inner, personal life.

What Is The Best Cell Phone Provider For International Calling?

My husband is always having trouble with this Internet connection overseas so, we need a new way to talk to each other. I was thinking of a cell phone – probably prepaid – but I cannot seem to find one with a decent International calling plan.

Any suggestions?

So far I think the best I’ve found is the At&t GoPhone though I a little confused about how it all works with the International calling & if calling him from here would count as mobile-to-mobile minutes. I guess my best best would be to go to an At&t store (which is 30 minutes away from where I live) & ask.

You’d think they make it a lot easier & cheaper for deployed soldiers to keep in touch with their families back home. As much as he pays for the Internet, it should not be as bad as it is. He’s always getting disconnected, there’s a huge delay most of the time & voice chat on Yahoo messenger sucks. We can do voice chat fairly decently on Google Talk but then the video chat is an issue. So, we just can’t win.

Grrrrrrr

We’d be straight if he just had a decent Internet connection since the Internet is full of ways to keep in touch. This sucks.

  3. Look at this and see what you think: http://tinyurl.com/6hmwwa

    There’s 50% off on calls in December. Looked pretty good to me.

    I don’t know much about international rates on calling cards (or calling cards in general) but I’ll keep looking and see if I can find anything else.

  4. Thanks I’ll check it out. With calling cards though, I still have to buy a phone for me & my hubby so he doesn’t have to use a payphone.
