Think of a calling card as a prepaid credit card which can be used only to make long distance phone calls without having to call collect or be billed from a long distance carrier. Each card purchased is for a specified number of minutes after which time the card is disposed of and a new one purchased. They are readily available at grocery stores and many other stores.
Making a long distance telephone call on a landline (non-cellular) usually requires a subscription to a long distance company or the need to call collect and have the recipient of the call pay for it. There is another way: a calling card.
The Calling Card
Domestic calling refers to calls made within the country of origin. A card purchased in the United States for domestic use can be used only to make calls within the United States, and may or may not include Alaska and/or Hawaii. These cards may not be used for calling outside of the U.S.
The international calling card can be used to make calls to another country. Usually, the countries which can be called are specified on the packaging of the card. Make certain the country to be called is specified, otherwise, the call cannot be made.
