Who doesn’t have a friend (close or not) or family (immediate or distant) in the US? At one point, I’m sure you would like to call them but, in the end, you just content yourself on sending emails. Sure, there’s nothing like hearing the voice on the other end. But telephone costs are sometimes unnecessary addition to our expenses… and think about the economy. Scrimping on anything just to make ends meet is necessary.
Good thing there’s CallingAmerica.com, a website which allows anyone from anywhere, as long as there is a web browser and a broadband connection, to call any number in the United States. What keeps this website rolling are the ads that the caller sees before the call is made. That’s a very minor hassle compared to the long distance charges you get for the regular calls:-)
