Most prepaid phone cards comes with a
  • Toll Free Access Telephone Number.
  • Personal identification number (PIN).

Prepaid phone card companies have computers that use your PIN to keep track of your card usage like... how much phone time you have on your card in minutes or units.

To make a phone call, you dial the access number, enter your PIN, and at the voice prompt, enter the phone number of the party you're trying to reach. The voice prompt tells you how much time or how many units you have left on your card, and how to use other features your card may offer. Typically, each unit equals one domestic minute.

If your prepaid phone card can't be recharged - that is, if you can't buy additional minutes by phone for the card - you'll need to buy another card once you've used up the time or minutes.

Dialing Instructions from USA
Domestic calls: Dial 1 + area code + telephone number.
International calls: Dial 011 + Country Code + City Code + local number.

Select your Phone Card

Generally carriers and resellers can issue their own prepaid phone cards; but if they don't issue the cards, they're not likely to be responsible for any problems you may have.

When you buy a pre-paid phone card from a store, it's important to remember that you've bought a telephone service, not a product. The store doesn't control the quality of the service. To make sure you're getting what you've paid for, you may want to buy a small denomination first to test out the service, and check with friends or relatives to find out their experience with the card.

Users can avoid many of these problems associated with prepaid cards - and buy considerable peace of mind - by planning ahead. Although many prepaid phone cards are impulse purchases, you can preempt disappointment by checking out a few things in advance:

  • Look for the rate for domestic and international calls. These rates may vary depending on where you call.
  • The prepaid phone card industry is highly competitive. Beware of very low rates, particularly for international calls. They generally indicate poor customer service.
  • Look for disclosures about surcharges, monthly fees, per-call access, and the like, in addition to the rate-per-minute or unit. Some cards add a surcharge to the first minute of use. Others charge an activation fee for recharging cards.
  • Check on expiration dates. Most cards expire one year after first use. If there is no expiration date, a card usually is considered "live" until all phone time is used.
  • Look for a Toll free customer service number. If the customer service number isn't Toll free or displayed, it may be difficult to contact the company if you have a problem with the card. A busy signal on the customer service line may be a tip off to a rip off.
  • Be sure the card comes with instructions that you understand.
  • Ask friends and relatives for references on the card you're thinking of buying.
