Tip for Week of October 8th through October 21st

October 8th, 2007

“I need to buy a phone card for someone in the military. What do I have to know before buying a card?”

Before purchasing a phone card for someone in the military, there are a few things you will need to find out first.

What kind of phone will the person be calling from?

Will the person be using the card from a cell phone or a regular phone? This is an important piece of information to know. If they will be using the card from their cell phone, they will need to find out from their provider whether or not they an use a phone card. Some cell phone providers block the use of phone cards.

What kind of phone lines will the call be using?

Some military bases overseas route their calls through the U.S. while others route their calls through the country where they are located. This will make a difference in the cards available to use.

If calls are routed through a U.S. network, you will need to do a rate search from the U.S. to the U.S.

If calls are routed through the country where the person is located, you will need to search from that country to the U.S.

Cards that are commonly bought at ZapTel.com for military personnel are Absolute Global when calls originate internationally, and Extreme Talk Time, Extreme Talk Time International, and the AT&T Prepaid Phone Cards when calls originate domestically.

Many families in the U.S. choose the Middle Easts Best for contacting service members in Iraq.
