Prepaid Phone Cards A Partner In Tough Times

Copyright (c) 2009 Tara Tiemann

Do you have friends and family who live in another State or country? If yes, there is no doubt that you want to keep the communication lines open despite the length of distance. Thanks to telecommunications technology, communicating with our friends and loved ones is possible using a land-line phone.

However, if your phone bills are starting to get in the way of your budget, it's about time to find better ways to keep in touch. The good news is that today, consumers can make calls using prepaid wireless cellular phones. Unlike a landline or a planned cell phone package, prepaid wireless phones do not charge monthly flat rate costs. Instead, you only need to pay for the minutes you used with no additional fees or charges. What other advantages can you enjoy from using a prepaid phone? Consider the following points:

Enjoy lower call rates with prepaid phone cards.

Most wireless Carrier services charge calls per second, not per minute. Thus, calling long distance from a prepaid phone is generally cheaper than calling from land-line. Prepaid call cards are also available in various denominations so you can purchase one that fits your budget.

If you do not need to make frequent long distance calls, perhaps you may prefer to buy a lower denomination. On the other hand, if you place long distance calls on a regular basis, you may choose a higher denomination call card with a longer expiration period.

Get connected anywhere, anytime.

Cellular phones are very handy so you can take it anywhere and place a call anytime you want. In case you run out of balance in your account, you can purchase a prepaid call card over-the-counter from booths, malls, book stores, or wireless carrier shops. If you don't want to go out or step away from your office, you can just purchase call cards online.

Reload your prepaid account through online banking.

If you don't have cash to purchase a new call card, you can reload your account using your funds from your savings bank account. Just log in to your account online and transfer your desired amount to your cell phone. You can also use a credit card to transfer funds from a nearest ATM.

Avoid unnecessary calls and limit your spending.

A lot land-line plan holders complain about expensive charges from their local and long distance calls. Some are even billed for calls they never made. Others find it difficult to limit the long distance calls they make. Then there are land-line owners who rack up their phone bills due to additional late penalty charges. If you fail to submit your payment on your deadline, you can expect to see arrears on your next phone bill. All these problems can be avoided with a prepaid wireless phone.

With a prepaid phone, you can pre-set an amount that you intend to spend on long distance calls each month. You can purchase a call card denomination that meets your budgeting plan. When making a call, you know exactly how long your talk time will last. This way, you can keep track of your calls more easily without worrying about payment due dates and late penalty charges.
