Anyone know of the best option / calling card with low rates to call Israel?
I know there’s WhatsApp for free; looking for a way to call cell/landlines through a kosher phone.January 16, 2023 8:31 pm at 8:31 pm #2156893ujmParticipant
With Localphone.com it’ll cost you 3 cents per minute to landlines and 8 cents per minute to mobile numbers. You can purchase credit in any amount starting from $1.
They also offer monthly subscriptions of 300 or 600 minutes per month, which can bring down the per minute cost to as low as 2.1 cents for landlines and 4.4 cents for mobile.
It can be used like a calling card from any phone. Or you can use it to call from your computer, VoIP or from an app on your phone.January 16, 2023 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #2156908amiricanyeshivishParticipant

If you are making a simple voice call WHY do you care if its a kosher phone? Any phone can make a landline call overseas (to EY or anywhere other country) that is included in the roaming service of your carrier.January 17, 2023 1:56 am at 1:56 am #2156965ujmParticipant
Gadol: If you use your mobile carrier’s direct dial to call international, you’ll likely be paying rates that are very expensive.January 17, 2023 1:56 am at 1:56 am #2156964BaltimoreMavenParticipant
I use an app called Keepcalling. It’s simple and cheap
There is also a service st onesuite DOT com where they give you a USA number which you can forward to any Israeli phone number.
In Israel they get plans with a USA number already assigned to ring on their phoneJanuary 17, 2023 10:30 am at 10:30 am #2157027GadolhadorahParticipant
UJM: Correct if you use standard roaming overseas roamingrates but my firm which uses ATT (and many other large multinational firms who contract with one of the major cell carriers) have substantially discounted or flat rate calling overseas. A lot of the big NYC area firms allow for personal calling on firm-issued cell phones (some with reimbursement but at substantially lower rates than what your would pay on your personal phone). Overall, the various VOIP Apps are generally a lot cheaper and generally provide a decent quality connection but if you have a firm issued phone with flexible usage policies, consider that option as well.January 17, 2023 12:15 pm at 12:15 pm #2157098yeshivaguy45Participant
Is Kirby Card still around? They had good rates many years ago
