You actually can make cheap international calls to both landlines and cellular phones and under some circumstances, even for free:
1. It works with any phone and any network 2. You don’t buy a calling card 3. You don’t need a PIN number 4. You don’t have to sign any contracts 5. You pay only for the time you talk
Here’s how it works:
To make a cheap international call you log into Rebtel online and enter the phone number of a person you want to call in another country. Rebtel assigns a LOCAL phone number to that person’s phone number. You enter that local number into your phone and make the call – you can use your landline or your cellular phone. Either way, you are now paying only for a local call. (If you use your cellphone you will pay your local mobile phone company’s local rate per minute).
How can you make a FREE international call? Same process. Only if the person you are calling ALSO uses Rebtel, your call is FREE. (If you’re using cellular phones you pay the local rate per minute) but the international portion of your call is FREE – you pay Rebtel nothing – nada – zippo – kein geld). So we're all for that!
Rebtel is super easy to use. You enter the name of the country you are calling from, then the name of the country you plan to call and you can instantly see how much a call will cost. So you know the cost in advance and you pay only for the time you are on the phone. Want an example? You can call from Argentina to the UK for only 0.019 cents a minute (2 cents a minute!) on a landline or 0.18 cents a minute on a cellphone (plus your local mobile phone rates).
With Rebtel you can call almost any other country. There are very few you cannot call. For example: you CAN call Bolivia with Rebtel from the United States, but you CANNOT make a call FROM Bolivia using Rebtel. Their website clearly states this when you enter the two country names. It indicates right away so there is never any confusion. We found it very simple to use!
We compared Rebtel’s rates to those of some of the best known calling card providers and found Rebtel to be generally between 1 and 4 cents cheaper per minute. There were very few exceptions. No calling cards, no downloads, PIN-less dialing. Use Rebtel instantly to save money on long distance calling!
