Calling Cards & Skype
Calling directly from abroad to the U.S. can be very expensive. A less expensive way to make these calls is to have a long distance international calling card. Most long distance carriers (e.g., AT&T, Sprint, Verizon) offer cards and special plans for international calls. Contact the carrier directly for detailed information. In addition, services such as Skype can be used to call home where a reliable internet connection is available. Visit http://www.skype.com for more information.
