Make an international call with a phone card

June 25th, 2012

“How do I make an international call with a phone card?”

Most phone cards work about the same.  With that said, it is always important to read the instructions that come with your phone card so it will properly work when you place your calls.

Generally, phone card work in this way:

1) Dial the access number for your phone card.

2) Enter the PIN for your phone card at the prompt.

3) Dial the number you’d like to call.  For calling within the USA, dial 1 + Area Code + Number.  For calls outside the USA, dial 011 + Country Code + City Code + Number.

With some phone cards, though, there could be language choices that you need to make (i.e. English, Spanish, German, etc.).  Other phone cards may ask you to press the pound key (#) after you enter the destination number.

The dialing directions for your ZapTel phone card were emailed to you when you received your PIN.  If you’re unable to find the dialing instructions and what to make sure, you can find the instructions in your ZapTel account.

Log on to with your email address and password.  When you’re on your dashboard, clicking on their the Rates or Access Numbers link will bring you to the card specifications page.  Once there, click on the tab that says Instructions to see the dialing instructions for your phone card.
