One of the best ways to keep in touch with your family, kids and
employees without having to pay for a sky rocketing phone bill when the
month ends is to have a phone card. Most people who have been using phone
cards found out that using it for long distance calling really make
sense. Phone cards have various practical uses such as:

For your kids or Employees to Stay in Touch with You
If you’re the type of person that gives phone cards so that your kids or
your employees can keep in touch with you, be very sure that the cards
have been purchased from a trusted company. You’ll find some phone cards
undesirable due to their busy signals. This means that, when you call in,
you will hear a recording that says the circuits are all busy at the
moment and you should try to call up again later. This kind of phone
cards can’t do any good especially if the call is very important or
urgent and you are unable to contact someone.

You want to know how your child is doing from time to time, but you are
worried that he/she is unable to memorize the number of the phone card?
This trouble is easy to work out. You can retain their phone cards and
just recharge it every now and then so that your child can call you up
anytime. If you are recharging the same phone card consistently, there is
no need for your kid to memorize more than one contact number. Should you
plan to do this, just see to it that the phone card has been purchased
from a highly-reputable phone card company that will be around over time
so that you can keep on recharging the card.

For travel
Among the most common uses of phone cards is for traveling. This will
save you from paying big bucks on hotel incidentals particularly if
there’s a need for you to call in your office or home or any person that
you want to talk to while you are on travel. Phone cards are extremely
used for journey overseas.

For students
Students, especially those who are taking their college studies in
another country or state, usually use phone cards to call home from their
dormitories. Phone cards are advisable in case you do not have a long-
distance provider. Some people choose phone cards than long distance
service providers for the reason that these cards help minimize the use
of phone for the month.

For home use
If you find it hard to get an excellent long distance phone service at a
reasonable cost, then phone cards can surely help you out. These cards
can be the answer to your needs for various reasons. With phone cards,
you pay as you go so there will never be a chance that you have to pay
for a gigantic long distance phone bill when the month ends. As long as
you charge your long distance calls on your phone card, expect that you
only have to pay for basic service. However, you have to go through the
hassle of dialing first the phone card number before you can make a call.

Another downside of using phone cards is that the calls made using these
cards usually give uncommon caller identification number to the call
recipient. So if you are calling a person who simply does not answer the
phone if they don’t know the caller, make sure you inform them that you
are using phone cards so your home number will not appear on their caller
