If You Have Problems in Use a Phone Card - Common Solutions

Total number of minutes is less than you expected.
Possible reasons:
- You are calling a cellular phone, but only landline phone rates were checked; cellular phone rates are usually much higher that landline phone rates. If You would like to know the cell phone rate that is not listed, please contact us and we will provide the rate information or the phone number where You can find out this information.
- You are calling using Toll Free Access number, which may be more expensive than using Local Access number.
- Rates update by the phone card company.
- The number you dialed is recognized as another region (for example, suburb of London may not be recognized as London city, which enjoys much cheaper rate), or a cellular phone (some area codes may be mistakenly recognized as cell phones).

If the new rate is too high for you, please stop calling and contact card's Customer Service about it. If you continue the phone call, it will be considered that you accept the new rate. There is not much what can be done if your card has been used this way.
