A Nifty Communication Hack for Expats
With the advent of voice carrying apps such as Skype and Viber, expats in the Philippines are finding it easier than ever to stay connected.
Often times when you need to make a phone call quickly due to an urgent matter, you simply do not have time to wait. Think about it - if you lose your credit card, you would want to inform the bank now – not in an hour or two.
At around 20 pesos per minute to call abroad using Smart or Globe, the thought of getting bent over is usually enough to deter people from calling altogether.
Using a free phone app like CPI’s World Call allows you to dial any number in the world using a wifi connection and a prepaid calling card loaded into your phone. For as little as 500 pesos, you can avoid being stranded anywhere again and call directly to any number in the world from anywhere with wifi at just 2.5 pesos per minute (to 80 countries).
Who wants to blow their proverbial cellphone load using an unreliable, overpriced network? Travel to any country and call anywhere, period. Give it a try.
