Default Mobile to mobile (international) Calling Cards

Please Login to Remove!

OK, someone out there has to have a decent deal. My girlfriend is away in Lucca, Italy for 6 weeks, and I'd like to be able to call her for 10-15 minutes a day without spending big $$$. Most every calling card I've looked at is running $.25 a minute, which for 15 minutes is roughly 4$ a day times 7 days a week is 21$ a week which is 130$ for the 6 weeks Not to sound like a cheap guy here but thats a hit in the pocket when your spending 42K a year on school alone. Does anyone have a good solution or know a good calling card which has good Mobile to Mobile rates? I'd love to see something at like $.10 a minute, but that might be asking a lot.

Before you ask I've looked at the rates under Mino, Jajah, and one other company I found on here after doing a search. Best I could find was .22 If anyone has a good solution or a good priced calling card. Anything at all, please let me know.

Thanks!!

I'm not sure you're going to find cheap rates for Int'l calls on cellphones. You might want to checkout voip services like skype. My friend talks to here nieces in Germany all the time using this service. As long as both of you have a computer & broadband internet, you can talk real cheap.

Here's the rate for Italy for computer to computer calls: $0.021/min.

Computer to cellphone: $0.308/min.

SkypeOut – call any phone, anywhere in the world

Sorry to correct you there, but using SKYPE, computer to computer anywhere in the world is free of charge as long as you have internet.... I don't know about the SkypeOUT rates though....

thanks for the info guys, I've actually looked into that also, but she doesn't have internet access other than the occasional "internet cafe" which is rather expencive. I found a $.14 a minute calling card for mobile to mobile I think i'll just give that a try since that seems to be the best bet. thanks for your help and if anyone can think of anything else please send it my way
