How does prepaid work?

For years, frugal international callers have found prepaid calling cards and services to be an economical alternative to paying on a monthly basis to a long distance carrier company contract. The prepaid service is an option that lets you pay in advance and pay as you go. As your balance gets lower or if it runs out, you can make a payment in your account to keep your service activated. We only deduct minutes as you use them, but it's best to always keep at least $5 in your account for calling so you can make calls without worrying about running out.
