Phone Card Pitfalls
Connection fee or first minute surcharge is charged when a call is connected. The charge varies between different service providers. This charge is not significant if you are buying a small value card and intend to use it at once. But, if you buy a high value card, with high connection fee, then you end up paying this fee everytime you make a new call.
The maintenance fee or sweet fee is charged if the calling card has balance, after making the first call. This charge varies between different service providers and their products. This is generally done for keeping the PIN account active after first use. The charging is done on weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis, after the first use.
Minutes rounding is the basic unit to record the length of the phone call. This varies between service providers and products. High value cards may have 30 second rounding and low value cards may have 3 or 6 minute rounding. This is a very important information, you should know, before using a card and while talking on the phone.
Domestic calls: Dial 1 + area code + telephone number.
International calls (from the USA): Dial 011 + Country Code + City Code + local number.
