 Q: Call I use my cell phone to call your local access numbers in other states?

The short answer is, "Yes, you can." But do so wisely. In the United States, cellelar phone companies usually provide bulk or unlimited weekends and nights long distance free minutes. If you have such a celluar phone plan, you can take advantage of it to use your mobile phone to call our phone card local access numbers that are not in your local area.

But before you make calls to our local access numbers, make sure that calling these numbers invites no addtional fees or charges. Rember that ecallChina take no responsibilities for any toll charges you may incur while using local acess numbers.

 Q: How to determine if an access number is within my local service area?
The determination of which calls are local is based on the standard residential service for your area or your celluar phone plan. You must contact your residential phone company and/or your celluar phone company to confirm that a particular access number is within your local service area. You should also confirm that there will be no charge for calling our local access number.

 Q: Why is it referable to make calls using local access numbers?

Local telephone number is used as an access number for certain prepaid phone cards. Using local access Numbers help to reduce costs and provide better pricing for consumers. A local access number has a lower rate than a toll free number. This translates into more minutes for you. We have more than 8000 nation-wide local access numbers for different phone cards. Local access number is free-of-charge only for calls that originate from within the local calling area. If you cannot find a local access number in your area but you have a cellular phone with unlimited weekend and night long distance free minutes, you can call our phone card local access numbers that are outside your local calling area.
