Best Prepaid Phone Cards Reviews 2012

April 02, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 220

Another year has come and gone and prepaid phone cards still remain as one of the most well used and cost-effective method of placing cheap international calls to Mexico, Japan, Russia, Philippines and other emerging countries around the globe.

One of the major reasons why sales of prepaid phone cards has increased every year is because more and more consumers prefer using their mobile phones over a traditional telephone.

But using the international call services from a mobile provider is the quickest way to a hefty monthly bill. Mobile service providers are notorious for over-priced international calls with rates as high as $2 per minute.

Prepaid phone cards offer rates as low as a penny for countries that consumers call the most such as Europe, Vietnam, South Korea and many countries in South America. And it doesn't matter which mobile service provider you signed up with, calling cards work with whichever company you choose.

However, not all calling cards are created equal. Some have differing rates when using it on a traditional phone or cell phone. It is still important to read the fine print on whichever product you buy. And the fine print has be easy to read. It should basically outline:

  • Rates for dialing to a land line or mobile line
  • Access numbers - local and toll-free
  • Fees (if any)
  • Expiration date

There are many prepaid phone card companies but the best and cheapest are purchased from companies found online.

Nobelcom has the best positive reviews when it comes to product reliability. But the quality of their calling cards reflect higher calls per minute rates. Though it's not by much, usually about a penny more. And a penny more is a nominal charge especially for business people who need to make an important call and want a clear connection to seal that all important deal in another country.

Another very good recommended company is Speedypin. The hallmark of this long time rival to Nobelcom is their 100% product guarantee. Speedypin has a range of reliable calling card products. Some they produce in-house and some they buy from other companies. So you'll have a greater choice of cards with many price ranges to fit your budget.

Both online prepaid phone card companies are highly rated and respected by the telecommunications industry. Whichever you choose make sure to check out the details of the card you wish to buy on their website. Or contact their customer service numbers by phone or email and discuss with a sales representative about which card is recommended.

One last tip is to buy a card in increments. Get the smallest card denomination and try it out first to see if the call quality or service is up to your expectations. When you are satisfied you can commit to buying more because the more prepaid phone cards you purchase from Nobelcom or Speedypin at one time you can qualify for discounts so you can save more money international calls.
