Default cheap phonecalls to calgary

i need to get intouch with someone in calgary and its going to be quite a long phonecall and dont wanna pay a fortune and wondered if anyone knows any ways to make a cheaper call.ive searched the internet and a few websites say you can use your mobile for free if you type said number in first (although im very skeptical of these as you would never know till you got your bill) it was http://www.cheapcallscanada.com/free...lls-canada.htm. anyone know of any REAL TRUSTWORTHY sites or companies that you can get cheaper calls to canada??

thanks

Shot, do you not have to crank the handle and ask the operator to connect you anymore

It's actually not that expensive to phone overseas these days.
We use Skype normally (free) but I've had a few phone calls with family back home, and it's cost less than $2 for an hours conversation.

Royal, you obviously were n't in sigs go on google and search for skype, down load it ( buckshee) and you'll be sorted then you can talk over the net for free provided the other person has it as well.

It really easy, but first you need a webcam and a microphone....most new laptops have them built in but if you don't have one you would have to buy one, (they're fairly cheap nowadays.)
Both you and the person you want to talk to need to download the free program (its safe so don't worry) and then you use the program to 'find' one another on it. Once you are 'joined' with each other, you can talk until your hearts content!!

Also look into Onetel. I used to use it. All it is is a code you punch into your home phone and the call charge is then 1p a minute. You can set up direct debit to pay it. Simple as that!
