Long distance, again

February 9th, 2007 at 04:38 pm

Has anyone else tried to add minutes to their AT&T prepaid calling card lately?

I just went to do so, and discovered that their rates for in-state calls in NJ are tripling! It's even worse in some other states--up to 8x the cost of out-of-state calls. Be careful out there!

I've had a system going, with Pioneer Telephone for out-of-state calls, and the AT&T phone card from Sam's for in-state calls as it was a bit cheaper per minute than Pioneer. Now I don't know whether to bother getting a different phone card, or just make all the calls through Pioneer. It's 4.5 cents/minute instate, and 2.9 cents for out of state calls.

Is it worthwhile to sign up with OneSuite to get 2.9 cents in-state, and save a mere $10 to $15 a year? Another account to worry about, another set of user names and passwords. Still debating, but right now I'm thinking not.

    I've used OneSuite for years and like it. If you use the local access number, it is only 2.5 cents a minute, and international calling is also very cheap. I have no idea how much ATT costs, though.

    I have used the Sam's calling cards for all in-state and out-of-state long distance calls. I have not found anything cheaper. I cancelled AT&T because their fees are ridiculously high.
    Most of the time I use my cell phone for long distance calls on weekends. Weekend minutes are unlimited on my T Mobile plan.
