Unlimited International Calling Plans
Phonepower VoIP (Broadvoice) offers three low cost unlimited calling international plans.  Using one of these plans an international caller simple pays a relatively low monthly fee and can make unlimited calls to phones to any of the countries listed in the plans.  These are very convenient and low cost plans for people who make frequent international calls to the locations covered in the selected plan.

Those who are interested should visit Unlimited International Calling Plans for details.  They offer three different international calling plans and the cost varies from $19.95 through $49.95 depending on the countries and phones covered.  Note that some plans cover mobile phones in certain countries and some do not.  It should also be noted that any of these VoIP plans allow unlimited calling in the USA and Canada and would replace home phone service.  It should also be noted that the company allows customers to keep their current phone number (which can be transferred to their new service) and they also offer a pretty complete range of features, including the following:

  • 30 Day Money Back Guarantee
  • A Mobile Phone App so the service can also be used from customers mobile phone.
  • Customers can send Faxes with the service.
  • Activation and all equipment is provided for FREE.  There is a small shipping cost for equipment.
  • Includes a second line - get two phone lines for the price of one.
  • Customer Service 7 Days per week.
  • More than 45 more typical features like voice mail, call waiting, etc.
There is also no contract so the service can be cancelled at any time.  The same company also offers low cost VoIP home phone service for the USA and Canada. This plan is only $8.33 per month.  For more information visit:

Unlimited calling in the US and Canada for $8.33/month

All of these plans charge some fees and taxes in addition to the monthly charge but these are all clearly listed on the website.  For the unlimited international plans these fees and taxes add about $5 per month.  Frequent international callers should investigate these plans because they would likely be a very good deal if the countries called frequently are included.

How to Make Cheap Phone Calls While on the Road

Most people who travel need or want to keep in touch with friends, family or business associates while on the road.  Today with mobile phones and INTERNET connections in most locations it is becoming much easier and cheaper to stay in touch.  We have a few options that we have used to keep in touch while on international trips and have listed them below.  The best option really depends on the situation, countries calling to or from and options available to the traveler.  There are a few options commonly used.  These are listed below:


  • Making calls using and international mobile phone.  A convenient option but also by far the most expensive.  With a little planning the traveler can use one of the options below and save a significant amount of money. Calls from international mobiles can cost dollars per minute (depending on carriers and location) while the options below can be free or cost a few cents per minute.
  • Phone cards are an old standard that have been used by international callers for many years.  They can be convenient and the cost can vary as well as the quality.  Smart Global Call features a variety of phone cards that can be used from around 80 countries.  They have several premium cards that are high quality such as; Continental, Bizon, Mozart, AT&T.  Generally those rated 4 stars or better on the website.
  • Callback or what is also referred to as web-call. This is an interesting option and it is not commonly used or known.  More information can be obtained here or at the Smartglobalcall.com website. This is a good option for those who are calling from a high cost country and have either a mobile or land-line where they can receive calls directly.  In this case a caller will send a message via e-mail, send an SMS, call a special phone number or in some way signal a computer that will call the callers phone from a low cost country.  Therefore, the caller is not charged for making an international call from the high cost country but is only receiving a call.  We have used the web-call feature of the Continental Phone Card to make calls like this from several high cost countries in the Middle East and found it to be very handy.
  • Another option is Skype or PC-to-Phone service.  We think every international traveler should have Skype loaded on their lap top computer.  Get a Free download at Skype Down Load. It is very handy since it can be used to make free calls over the INTERNET to other Skype users and it can also be used to call from a PC to a mobile phone or land-line for a fee.  Skype is the most popular service of this kind but there are other less popular services that can be lower cost depending on the situation.  One similar service is REBTEL ( visit Free or Cheap Calls with Rebtel for more details).  It can be used like a phone card to make cheap calls from land-lines or mobile phones and it also has a PC-to-Phone features.  We have used it to make PC-to-Phone calls from high cost countries and it works fine.
There may be a few other options we are not aware of but this is a good summary of some common low cost products that are high quality, low cost as well as convenient.
