Cheap International Calling from the United Arab Emirates (UAE)
The UAE is one of those international locations where they make it difficult to make cheap international phone calls. They attempt to block Skype and other low cost options like most major phone card websites. People who download Skype before traveling to the UAE can use it to make Free Calls to other Skype users but many have found that they cannot purchase Skype credits while in the UAE. One way around this is to use a VPN that by-passes the local INTERNET and uses a server in the USA or Europe, than no websites are blocked. One phone card that I use a lot from the UAE is the Continental Card sold by Phone Cards International. There website is not blocked and the continental phone card can be used as a callback phone card (web call option) from any country. All a person needs is an INTERNET connection and a phone (mobile or land-line) that can receive an international phone call. The INTERNET connection is used to input the number a caller is calling from and the number they wish to call and the computer does the rest. It directs a call to the callers phone from outside the country and connects them with the other phone. It is very easy to use, cheap and has very good call quality. I have used the product from several countries including; Oman, South Korea, Russia, Kazakhstan, USA and the UAE without any problems. The Continental Card can also be used as a phone card from the USA and about 60 other countries. So your spouse or other family members can use the same card to make calls to you while you are on the road. It is a very handy product that can be used from any country. For best results, make a purchase and try it out before you travel. However, if you are already in the UAE and need a product to make cheap international phone calls, visit Phone Cards International and choose the Continental Card (Web Call) for more information.
