Feedback from Customers Calling to the United Kingdom

Here’s an experience I’ve had with customers calling to the UK:

I have helped a lovely couple named Henry and Molly stay connected with their daughter in the UK.  They prefer the Flying Colors! phone card.  It is 3.9¢ per minute to a landline and 20¢ per minute to a mobile phone.  Along with the flat-rate billing, they like the features the Flying Colors! has including recharge, PINzap Pinless Dialing, speed dial, and online call details.  They’ve been using the same PIN now for over 3 years and have been very happy with the calling card.
