1. Rates Many people buy calling cards by looking at the advertised XXX minutes for ABC country, but what they don’t know is that calling different countries means different rates. And rates are also different if you are going to call a landline or a mobile phone outside of US or Canada. So smart shoppers should find out the rates of calling a certain country, then divide your card balance by the ‘per minute rate’ which will give you the remaining ‘minutes’ on your card. For OneSuite users, you could go to our rates page for verification so you’d know if you could stay on the line for 1 hour or just 5 minutes with your available balance.

Before I defected to PC calling, I used to buy phone cards from local grocery stores to place some long-distance or international calls. Oddly enough, for my supposedly 500-minute calling card, some weekly 10-15 minute calls would eat up the card in just a couple of weeks. It’s only after I worked for OneSuite, did I learn that most calling cards have different fees and hidden charges calculated to consume your minutes in no time.
I like to chat, but don’t like to pay a lot for it. Sometimes I think that’s what brought me to OneSuite in the first place. Before joining the marketing department, I was a customer support representative, and talking non-stop. And boy, have I got stories to tell! For instance, one customer complained about her poor call quality, and after a long round of troubleshooting, out of the blue she gasped “It’s my dog!”
If you are like most people, when it comes to long-distance calling, you dial from your home phone and always try to cut the conversation short. Major phone carriers usually bundle their long-distance with local service, but the international rates are so high, long-distance calls always feel like a luxury.
