Most of phone# are the same owner, They just change the name of the phone# you're buying! Some of the phone card you can only use one time even though you still have lots of minutes leftover when you use it next time its all gone. Some it say you have 55 min. But you only have 25 or 30 min. I just bought this phone card "BEST INTERNATIONAL" The recording say you have 55 min. If use one time, But the call keep CUT-OFF when you use it again you don't have thats much min. Left! And if you make a phone call and the phone just ring, You hang-up! next time you use the card you don't have anymore min. Because each time your cutoff the phone co. Are deducted minutes from your phone card. There is no cheapest way to call home. The phone co. Are stealing your money!

If anybody knows a phone card that is good please, POSTED HERE. SALAMAT!

This is really stupid. Why spend money on phone calls when you can use Skype (not Skype Out). You need to first call your loved ones in Pinas and tell them to go online, log on to either their Yahoo Instant Messenger, MSN Messenger and SKYPE. Then you can hang up and then get online too. When you see their account online in either SKYPE, YIM or MSN IM, ring them up and VOILA! Instant communication. FREE TOO!

You can also buy Magic Jack (one time fee only, no monthly fees) and install it in your computer. It is a USB device which I think cost around $40 or thereabouts. Follow the instructions and VOILA...! You can call them via phone and for an unlimited time. Magic Jack is even available in the Philippines in some select malls.

It's not a reasonable assumption that everyone in the Philippines has a computer or internet to go with it. So Skype may not be a viable option.

Not even an internet cafe? If you are close to a mall, you can go to an internet cafe there. I was in a small town in Pangasinan while touring and even that rinky dink town has 3 internet cafes. LOL! They are all over the place. Just ask the locals.

OWTEL isn't a card... you get a bill at the end of the month and only pay for what you use....
No cheapest way

It doesn't matter what type of phone care you're going to buy most of them have the same owner. They just change the name of phone card. Phone card are scammer! Even if the say you got 40 minutes thats don't mean you're going to get 40 minutes. Some of phone card if you use it once next time you use it you won't have anymore minutes on it even though you still have minutes available. There is no cheaper way to call home most of the phone card are crooks too!

In the US, it is like the "pay as you go service". You only pay what you use. Watch out for the caveats. Read the fine prints. Ask people who use them for any "gotchas".

Great to see such a well informed, knowledgeable contributor to this forum. Not doubt you are quite active in self satisfaction. JUST BEAT IT.

Wow! Some people here are way too high strung and way too serious. They want to show off how much more they know than the next guy. It doesn't encourage other members from participating. Yup, we're not worthy!

Hello everyone, fun reading all the comments... I will go directly to the main topic. Please try http://www.talkloop.com/ They are 11.2 cents a minute (for right now). Every time u call, they will tell u how much money left. If u cannot contact the person, they will not charge u. We are using this for around two years already and it's good, but I'm still looking for unlimited calling since I always call to my Family in the Philippines. Skype and yahoo is good too, they are unlimited calling from pc to pc if they have computers and internet connection in the Philippines.

Hope we can find a great deal in calling our families in the Philippines :) Have a great time everyone. God bless!
