Cheap Calls to the Middle East with Tel3Advantage Savings Plan

Tel3Advatage Savings Plan
There are several options for new customers when they sign up for the Tel3Advantage prepaid calling plan.  The two most popular options that are commonly marketed on-line are the Tel3Advantage Flex Plan and the so called Triple Promo Plan. Another less common option is the Tel3Advantage Savings Plan. These plans all ultimately offer the same service and great rates but they offer different incentives for new customers.  Those who want to sign-up for first time should review all of the Tel3Advantage sign-up options in order to find the best deal for their situation.  Visit here for a summary of the Tel3Advantage options for new customers.

The first two options (Flex Plan or Triple Promo) offer new customers either a bonus for opening a new account or lower rates and a bonus for the first 30 days.  For example, a new customer who signs-up for Tel3Advantage using the Triple Promo option will get a bonus of up to $10 (depending on the amount of the initial deposit) that can be used to make phone calls along with discounted rates for the first 30 days.  The Savings Plan option does not provide new customers with a sign-up bonus but the rates are discounted for the first 6 months.  For most new customers the Triple Promo option offers the best deal but for some people the savings plan is a better deal.  The best deal depends on the locations called and the number of calls or minutes a caller plans to use. In general, high frequency callers who tend to call to high cost locations would save money by signing up using the Savings Plan option.  However, this is not always true so most new customers should compare rates between the Savings Plan and the Triple Promo options.

The Savings Plan option does provide very good rates to many locations in the Middle East which tend to be high cost destinations.  Some examples are listed below:

Egypt  4.9 cents/min
Iran 4.5
Jordan 8.5
Qatar 16.5
Syria 10.3
Turkey 3.4
UAE 13.7

These rates are from the USA when a local access number is used.  These rates include all fees and taxes so there are no additional charges like connection fees or other hidden costs.  Tel3Advantage is also a high quality service so connections tend to be very clear.  They have been in the prepaid calling business for over 17 years  and have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB).  They also offer a full range of features including PIN free dialing, speed dial and Tel3Apps for Smart Phones.

For most new customers, the Tel3Advantage Triple Promo option is best but some people will benefit by signing up under the Savings Plan.

Where to Buy a Phone Card

There are many prepaid calling options for people who who want to save money on international and other long distance calls.  Prepaid options are popular because they are cheap and are generally a "pay as you go" product so callers only pay for what they use.  One word of caution, not every phone card or prepaid product is perfectly  "pay as you go" since some charge a "maintenance fee" or a periodic charge for keeping the phone card active.  In most cases, in order to avoid a maintenance fee, simply purchase a small denomination phone card and use it before the maintenance fee is accessed (usually every week, bi-weekly or monthly).

We use different prepaid products when traveling or working overseas.  The suitable product depends on the situation.  For example, when traveling and staying in hotels my favorite product is a PC to Phone service since it is convenient to use the hotel INTERNET service.  Many people use Skype  since it is free to make calls to other Skype users but it is necessary to call them on their PC.  Since they are  not always on their PC I like to use a PC to Phone product.  The one I use most is LocalPhone since it is a very convenient a flexible product that can be used in a variety of ways.  For example, it can used to make PC to phone calls or PC to PC calls but it can also be used as a traditional phone card or to set up a local phone number people can dial which will be forwarded to your phone worldwide.  It is a convenient product with a range of uses. They will also give new users a free 5 minute trial call by using the link above before opening an account and customers can deposit as little as $1.

Another one of our favorite products is Tel3Advantage.  It is basically a high quality, virtual phone card but it has many features not offered by most phone cards.  For example, customers have an on-line account where they can make changes to their account and monitor activity, add credits, etc.  They can also download free Apps for their i-Pone or Android phone that can be used to make direct dialed international calls from smartphone over the low cost Tel3Advantage network without dialing an access code or entering any extra phone numbers.  This is a free service that is very popular with smartphone users who make international phone calls.  Tel3Advantage can be used to make cheap calls from 20 countries now so it is a popular product with many international travelers.  Visit Tel3 Advatage for a free trial call and more details or call 1-800-441-0321 to talk with a representative.

For people who want a more traditional phone card a sensible option is to visit a website that offers a variety of phone cards.  These sites offer a search option which will allow shoppers to compare phone cards and rates for making calls from the location where they plan to use the card to the desired destination.  One such website is Smart Global Call Phone Cards International, they have a wide selection of phone cards with different features and price ranges and guarantee all of their phone cards.  They also allow customers to transfer balances from one phone card to another.  One popular phone card that can be used from over 60 hcountries is the Continental Card.  It is currently on sale at a 10% discount (a purchase of $20 or more is required), visit here for more details.

  1. For most people, the best deal on calls using Tel3Advantage are found by signing up for a new account using the Triple Promo offer.  Visit Tel3 Triple Promo for details. On calls to Iran, the Triple Promo rate from the USA is 6.9 cents per minute to mobile phones and 9.0 cents to land-lines.  These rates are valid for 30 days and new customers receive a bonus of up to $10 when they open an account.  Note that these rates will revert to the normal rate of 7.5 cents to mobile phones and 12.9 cents to land-lines after the first 30 days when the Triple Promo period ends.

How to Call Rwanda for Low Rates

Like other locations, there are many options for making international calls to Rwanda these days.  Products ranging from VoIP & PC to Phone to phone cards and prepaid calling plans all offer different rates, quality and features which makes choosing the right product for a given set of circumstances very confusing for the average consumer.  We have highlighted a few products here with current pricing and quality information. People who want general information on calling Rwanda including dialing codes should visit here.

Our favorite product for making calls to Rwanda is Tel3Advantage and it also has some of the lowest rates.  The rates offered during their Triple Promo are 9.9 cents per minute to mobile phones and 15.2 cents to land-lines. These were the best rates we found on calls to mobile phones in Rwanda. Visit the special Tel3Advantage Triple Promo page here or call 1 800 441 0321 in North America for more details. Tel3Advantage is a high quality prepaid calling plan that can be used to make cheap long distance calls from the USA, Canada or 22 other countries.  The rates shown above are based on USA rates using a local access number.  Using a toll free access number in the USA or calling from other locations will add at least 1 cent per minute to these rates.  However, there are no other fees or taxes.

We also found some premium phone cards with relatively low rates.  These can be found by visiting Smart Global Call International at calling cards.  Rates on these cards are about 13 cents per minute for calls to mobile phones and 12.2 cents for calls to land-lines.  Like most, these have some other fees which vary depending on the card selected and how it is used.  Other phone card websites that we surveyed tended to have higher rates.  For example Penny Talk charged 23 cents per minute for calls to land-lines and 33 cents for calls to mobile phones and Nobelcom's cheapest phone card  charged 16.4 cents on calls to land-lines and 21.9 cents on calls to mobile phones.

We found that Skype charged 27 cents per minute (using Skype Credits - pay as you go) for calls to land-lines and mobile phones in Rwanda.  Other similar PC to Phone products like LocalPhone (24 cents) and Rebtel (16.4 for land-lines and 37.9 for mobiles) also had relatively high rates.

Tel3Advantage stood out from the rest after comparing all of the options because it has the best all around rates, high quality and it is easy to use.  They also do not require a long term contract or agreement in order to get the lowest rates.  However, Tel3Advantage can only be used to make calls from 22 countries so if you are not in one of these Tel3 Network countries you will need to use another product.

Best Apps for Calling Abroad


One of the hardest parts about being abroad is staying in touch with your friends and family back home. This was certainly the case for me when I lived abroad; this led to me trying a few things in order to communicate easily and more importantly, cheaply. What is common among these apps is that they are VoIP systems, which means voice over internet protocol. This allows for anyone with a standard internet connection to make free calls.

  1. Skype- We all know Skype, it’s the best app for any entry level user of VoIP apps. It’s easy to use and very cheap; also Skype is by far the most widely used. It is free within Skype network yet the rates for calling outside the network are very cheap. Cheaper than any international mobile rates you’re likely to find. Connection is solid, there are minor problems if your Wi-Fi connection is slow but overall it is the best app for anyone looking to stay in touch.
  2.   What’s App- This app is really a messaging app but it is really the best for international texts. You can text any phone regardless of carrier anywhere in the world, which definitely comes in handy. It does have some extras which make the app all the more fun like group chats, picture sharing, and audio and video notes in your conversations.
  3.  Fring- Is completely free to use, and allows for very inexpensive rates to landlines and other cell phones if the other person is not a Fring user. Fring is a great option for those looking for a Skype alternative and you can chat with up to four people at the same time which makes it great for group video chats. The connection is solid, the quality of video and voice chats are rated very highly.
  4. Viber- An up and coming app that has been given solid reviews and there’s no need to register as you simply use your mobile number. It merges with your existing contacts and while the connection is generally good there have been problems in low Wi-Fi areas. Unlike Skype there is no ‘offline’ mode and you cannot make calls to non Viber users, even for an additional charge.
  5. Tango- Works best for one on one communication and the video connection and quality is overall good with some complications but there is hope that these may be remedied soon. It immediately goes through your contacts and lets you know who is a Tango user. However, since there are still relatively few users the chances of your friends actually using it is slim. Its biggest drawback is that it is not designed for group chat, yet it is still an easy to use option that is gaining fans.
Hopefully this can help you choose which app is best for you, and help you stay in touch while you’re overseas.

How to Speed Dial International Numbers

People who make frequent international phone calls know what it is like to always dial a long string of numbers in order to place a call.  To make matters worse, if the number called is busy than it is necessary to repeat the process over and over. It is also easy to make a mistake and place a call to the wrong phone number.  To make international calling easier and error free, several companies offer prepaid calling cards and other products with a speed dial feature.  One favorite product with an easy to use speed dial feature is Tel3Advantage.  Their product is very user friendly and can store up to 99 phone numbers that can be revised and edited as frequently as necessary.  With Tel3Advantage a customer can simply log into their on-line account, click on a link labeled speed dial numbers and follow the simple step-by-step instructions to enter a new phone number.  The customer assigns a two digit number from 01 to 99 to each entry and they are stored for easy reference. The list can also be formatted for printing.  When placing a call a customer simply dials the Tel3Advantage access number and inputs the two digit number assigned to the person they wish to call followed by the # key and the number is automatically dialed.  This is a super feature for people who make frequent international calls to the same phone numbers.

Not all phone cards offer speed dial so if you want this feature you will need to open a Tel3Advantage account or use a premium calling card like Continental Card which also offers a speed dial feature.  Visit Tel3 Promo to open a Tel3Advantage account with a special offer for new customers.  You can also call 1-800-441-0321 from the USA or Canada and ask for the "Triple Promo" offer.  Tel3Advantage can be used to make cheap international phone calls to any location from the USA, Canada and 20 other countries.

Advantages of Virtual Phone Cards

Virtual phone cards offer several advantages over those purchased in super markets and convenience stores.  For one, it is easy to shop and compare features and prices of phone cards on-line before making a purchase.  Several websites like  Smart Global Call Phone Cards International feature a wide variety of phone cards for every purpose and to meet any budget.  There are also several other advantages of using virtual calling cards.  Some of these are the following:


  • Security - Calling cards purchased in stores are a physical card which can be lost or stolen and  while a virtual phone card is safely stored in an on-line account so there is no chance of losing the card.  However, there is still a chance of someone else using the card if they have access to the account or have the phone card PIN code.
  • Features - Many virtual phone cards come with a full range of features that are not offered with traditional calling cards.  Some of these like call history, auto-recharge and speed dial are very useful and make international calling much easier.
  • Cost - In many cases virtual phone cards offer lower costs, especially when one considers all of the hidden charges.  At least it is much easier to study the fee structure of each phone card on-line so cost of each call is not a mystery. 
  • Exchange - Many virtual phone card marketers, like Smart Global Call, allow customers to exchange phone cards.  They allow a caller to transfer the remaining prepaid amount on one card to another card which the user may prefer.
  • Access - Virtual phone card customers have access to their account and phone card information from any location where they can access the INTERNET.
  • Guarantee - Most reputable on-line phone card merchants offer a money back guarantee.  If a customer is not satisfied they can get a full refund of the unused portion of their calling card or exchange it for another card.
Phone cards are convenient to use and offer consumers a great way to save money on long distance calls.  Virtual phone cards offer even more convenience since they can be purchased and safely stored on-line.  Phone cards are very useful for travelers, students, military personnel or other people who make frequent long distance calls.
