Skype.com Versus Calling Cards
After a recommendation from my friend Travis, I purchased a 300 Baht Phone Card here in Thailand, I now can call the USA for .85 Baht per minute using my mobile phone.

2.5 cents per minute for calls from Thailand to the USA.

It is easy enough, I programmed in an Italk number, and then when I call it, Italk immediately calls me back. I than enter the code from the card, followed by the telephone number.

No need for an internet connection, simple, easy and mobile, I can make this type of phone call from most anywhere in Thailand. I believe the Telephone Companies will soon claim back market share, although in reality, Skye.com is just a reseller of telephone service.

Will there be a comeback of Calling Cards?

To buy a SIM card to make an unlocked quad band phone work with a prepaid card is about 5 dollars around the world. The cost and ease of calling people is becoming increasingly possilbe for a traveler of the planet.

Now all I have to do is figure out a way to get people to pick up the phone when the call ID number is strangeā€¦

You can buy the card in many store, however the most recognizable is Boots or Family Mart.
