Default Calling US from Austria - cheapest prepaid SIM rates? - 18-04-2009, 03:13

I arrived in Vienna yesterday. Looking to buy low cost prepaid SIM to call U.S. using my unlocked quad GSM phone. Post office has A1 Sim but US calls are 60cents/minute. Grocery store sells multiple pre-paid (including BOB), but I don't know the rates to call US. I read that EETY is cheapest, but not sure where to buy it (not sold at Vienna Post office or Grocery store).

Any help appreciated.

Default cheap worldwide calls - 14-05-2009, 09:12

You could buy a Prepaid SIM from Telering or one from Hofer (=Supermarket Discounter, austrian version of ALDI) which are 7 ct/min to austrian landline and all other austrian networks.

Then use DialNow | Cheap International Calls

The SIM will bring you for 7 ct/min to Vienna landline, Dialnow will connect you from Vienna to i.e. USA for another 0.5 ct/min.

Dialnow is a Betamax brand and can be used worldwide. The only important thing is a cheap access to the landline of the country in which you are.

You can save your phone numbers complete in your phone memory, separated by a p (pause) and dial directly from the memory, or you can send the destination no. as a DTMF also.
