Ok, so you wanna talk to someone overseas, on the other side of the country, or where ever and you are too cheap to pay long distance phone charges. Easy solution, if you have a pc and you have an internet connection, buy yourself a cheap headset and download Skype. http://skype.com
The people you want to talk to will have to install Skype on their end as well, but its free and its easy. If they don't have a pc or internet connection and you just HAVE to spend money, Skype will sell you an add-in to dial regular phones, they'll even sell you a regular phone number so folks calling from a regular phone can get you via skype, and they'll even sell you voicemail.
Isn't it a great world?
