When I live in Belize, I will have an IVG line in my home. Essentially, this is a Washington DC (202) number. That means I have free phone calls to DC or to 1-800 numbers. I can’t however, call long distance in the US on this phone. Most Embassy personnel, therefore, subscribe to a phone card to call long-distance in the US.
I have only been able to find pre-paid phone cards online. I don’t want to use one of these because they have so many backdoor fees for maintenance or connect fees, etc. Plus, I don’t want to buy two years worth of pre-paid phone before I leave.
So, does anyone out there have any knowledge of phone cards, with access numbers and all, where I just get billed for what I use? It does not need to have a good international plan or anything, just a simple US long-distance phone card. If you have any info, please leave a comment below.
(Edit - Belize has actually blocked Skype and other services, so these are not an option).
