Making Free Phone Calls Abroad
(New York Times) — Thanks to a new service called FreePhone2Phone, that transaction is now possible. Listen to a 10- or 12-second ad, get 10 minutes of free calling to any of 55 countries. According to the company, 85 percent of all calls are under 10 minutes long, so most calls are covered. If you have a cellphone, this concept can save you big dollars when you’re calling overseas. If you’re among the millions of low-income Americans who have landlines and basic phone plans, you can save 50 cents or $1 every time you call long distance, since you begin every FreePhone2Phone call by dialing a local access number.
