Cheap calling cards?

Postby _miko » Tue, 11 Oct 2005 8:50 pm

Hey does anyone know of any cheap calling cards (apart from that singtel worldcard thing which I think is a rip-off :o ) to call Australia from Singapore?

And if anyone knows of any international calling cards in Japan to call Australia too, that would be helpful... thanks a lot! :lol:

Hi, i have tried some cards ... got some good bargain..
For a $10/- card value (which i bought for abt $7++), i can call an Sydney local line for 4hrs!! Other countries i am not sure.. but i am sure it will be quite good package too.. And the best thing is the connection is quite good.. not noisy or cut ur line halfway..

Cheers,
Take care :wink:

try signing up for all overseas calls, been using it two years, although I phone Europe mostly, its very reasonable, and a good line. I think you can also get cards too.

Hi wo384, if u r calling local line, u can try using this card called IDD card (with zodiac star signs). A $10 value can call abt 2-3hrs, reception is also quite clear. U normally can get the card from those newspaper agents or booths. If u want to get cheaper, u can try to get them at Lucky Plaza, probably around $7+++.

Cheers,
:cool:

"Free" International calls

Haven't tried any of this, but if you go to www.gumtree.com and search for Singapore, you'll be returned a lot of adds detailing some quite interesting claims. ALl look pretty valid given there level of detail.
Let me know how you get on...

If you are looking to get a phone card, you can check out the tiny phone card stalls opposite John Little Shopping Centre. (on the Centrepoint side of the road)

They have a good range of cards plus folders with the individual rates.

I found one that lets me call the US for 600minutes for a $10 card. The connection is great and I can call from my cell or a landline
