•Some cards can be used only as pre-paid ones.

Phone cards have, no doubt, made international calls more accessible and cheaper. But still, differences in service and rates offered by various operators exist. Hence, it is advisable to shop around a little before buying a phone card. Some of factors one needs to consider are:
•Reliability of operator: Many fly-by-night operators also came in to phone card business looking at response rate and market size. Avoid them. •Service quality of operator: Check if calls can be connected at any time and if line and voice quality is really clear. •Rates: Rates offered by operators differ from state to state and country to country. They may also depend on time when you call – higher at time of peak traffic. Hence, check out where you are likely to call most and then decide on your operator.
