The third column where you see the 1.1¢ rate is for when you call a cell phone. I'm pointing this out to you because many people think that the rate applies to land lines as well as cell phones.

So remember, calling a cell phone with a phone card will always result in a slightly higher call per minute rate.

Some Helpful Hints On Buying Phone Cards From Speedy Pin

Right below you will find a chart with phone card rates for calling Thailand.

Speedy Pin usually gives you 6 of the best phone card choices for you which ever country you desire to call.

Notice that the first three cards have a .69¢ Weekly fee (This is a maintenance fee that is deducted off the credit of your phone card in a weekly basis). But the bottom three phone cards have no such fees.

Now if you look closely at the first three cards you will notice that the call per minute rate on the first column shows the price range from 1¢ to 1.4¢.

The bottom three call per minute rates range from 1.9¢ to 2.7¢. But those cards have no fees at all.

So now you know that phone cards with the lowest rates come with the most fees.

So which phone card should you choose?

Well this all depends on your calling habits. Let's say that you call your Aunt Petunia in Thailand almost every day of the week. For this scenario I would go ahead and choose the first phone card. Why? Because I know I will finish off the phone card within the week. Therefore avoiding the .69¢ weekly fee.
