The great thing about having relatives living in a different country is that you get to crash at their place when you visit them. The not-so-great thing is when you receive the bill with all those racked up long distance minutes. This is where Rebtel (a VoIP System) comes into play and offers you some of the lowest international rates that we’ve seen along with a bunch of extra features.
To get started you’ll need to download and setup Rebtel on your iPhone, then call a international number. Rebtel will change your phone number to the same country that you’re calling so now you’re calling another country at very low rates. Wondering how low the rates actually are? Click here.
There are other plusses such as not having any contracts, no connection fees, and better yet free local calling to another Rebtel user. If you’re one to send international SMS messages, Rebtel also provides rates that’ll most likely be a bit cheaper. Last, is the UI is relatively easy to grasp and it’ll even conveniently store phone numbers in your phone book.
The Bottom Line:
Rebtel may be a little strange to use at first but worth the effort if it saves you money.
