International Long Distance

Connecting with loved ones and friends around the world is important, but international calls can be expensive and inconvenient. Many people can get frustrated with the lack of options when they use a landline phone, and international calling cards can have high minute rates and connection fees. Using a prepaid cell phone, international long distance calling doesn't have to be a hassle.

With a prepaid TracFone you can direct dial your international calls to 60 different countries for the same price as all the other calls you make. No additional charges for international long distance and no connection fees, you just pay the same for the minutes you would use anyway. You don't need to activate the International Long Distance service, and you know exactly how many minutes you have because it's conveniently displayed on your screen. Make international calls conveniently from your own cell phone.

I tried calling Italy relatives today and twice after the ringing tone was told no service available to that destination. However, after about 5 minutes I received a call back from the number I dialed in Italy and they told me their phone rang and listed my cell phone no. so that they were able to call me back. Why was I denied service to Italy????????????

What I need to know is, can I can from an international location (I'll be in Costa Rica next week) to the US? My Tracfone phone is a Motorola C261, if that matters. --Bill

TRACFONE said...

Bill: your TracFone will work in the United States but not within Costa Rica.

El Salvador is small but over populated country in Central America. How can I call to El Salvador only using my tracphone minutes(that is without using an international card)?
PS:It surprised me that even though there is a big Salvadorean Population in the MD/VA/DC area, its area code is not listed. Why is that?

TRACFONE said...

Rod:

El Salvador is currently not among the countries that TracFone makes available through ILD.

I'm in the US Army deployed to Iraq, how can I use my LG410 phone here?

TRACFONE said...

Dave: Thank you for your service.

You will be able to use your TracFone when you return to the States. Please do so safely, Soldier!

You can also give your TracFone to your family in the U.S. and they can call you in Iraq for the same cost as a local call.

Please see http://bit.ly/dh3m9O for more information.

Planning trip to Norway this summer. Have iphone but would like to avoid high roaming charges ($1.29/minute). Does Tracfone sell or partner with company that provides service in Norway?

Thanx

I am traveling to Northern Ireland in March if I buy a trac phone will I be able to call home?

TRACFONE said...

@Laura Lou

Your TracFone will work in the U.S. but not outside.

But if you leave your TracFone with family or freinds in the States, they can call you for the same cost as a domestic call: http://bit.ly/9CZt2y.

Hi Becky: TracFones only work WITHIN the United States. Thanks for asking, tho.

charles said...

i just have my tracfone yesterday and i tried to call philippines but it says the destination of this no is not icluded at this service,is that true?i tried UK and its the same thing but UK is on the list of the `available international destination'.or do i have to wait 48 hrs?

Postmaster said...

Hi Charles. Did you call 800-706-3839 first? If it still isn't working for you, please contact Customer Service: 800-867-7183. thanks.

i think tracfone is misleading to the public. i have been told that it would work to call the philippines.i am from the philippines and i explained that to the salesmen and he told me i could call the philippines.. well that was a complete lie or he just did not know any better hindi ko po alam...at any rate i will be sure to let everyone know that buyer beware because your service is not any good in the philippines.it sure is very odd how tracfone has offices in the philippines but you cant call there on a tracfone so so odd. :( well i am very glad that my trusty globe telecom roaming works or i would not be able to call home because i spent a good amount of money on tracfone and it was a complete waste because it does me no good at all :(

Postmaster said...

johnlovesaiza: Sorry to hear that. Not sure which "salesmen" told you that, but you were misinformed.

You can check the list of international destinations here: http://bit.ly/bKD8MD

It sounds to me like what everyone REALLY wants is to be able to TAKE their Tracfone with them when they travel and be able to use it-- Tracfone people take notice- even if there was a small charge I would have LOVED to have been able to use my phone when we were in Jamaica- It was confusing and expensive to buy an international calling card and then try to find a phone to use to use the card.

kristine said...

Hi. Im looking to call the UK from my tracfone. But i wanted to make absolute sure that the person im calling will not be charged extra for the call since Im calling from America. Thanks. -Kristine. WA

Postmaster said...

Hi Kristine. They shouldn't be, but that's up to the UK provider and not us. Your UK person might need to check on his end. Hope that helps. Thanks.
