Press Release Summary: DependablePhoneCards.com, an active consumer advocate in retailing prepaid phone cards online, has announced the launch of its new No Fee Phone Card Campaign.
Press Release Body: Dependable Phone Cards now features No Fee Phone Cards provided from a select handful of Issuers who have proven over the years they are committed to selling cards that deliver the minutes they promise, yet still offer competitive discounts. Discounts that can save users up to 95% on domestic and international long distance telephone bills.
"The handwriting is on the wall," stated DependablePhoneCards.com's Dan Landrum. "The testimony before both the U.S. House & Senate makes it clear - phone card users are fed up with not getting the minutes they paid for. It's time for a change."
No Fee Phone Cards can appear to cost more than lower rate ones, but being an unregulated industry, some calling card companies can knowingly misrepresent their products with hidden fees and limitations that can bilk the user out of minutes they paid for. Congress is currently considering the "Prepaid Calling Card Consumer Protection Act," which will require card sellers to clearly describe any fees and limitations.
Telephone companies such as AT&T, MCI and Sprint are responsible for the telephone lines that carry calls. Phone card Issuers buy minutes from the telephone companies and set Phone Card rates. Issuers also provide access numbers and toll-free customer service. Retailers sell the cards to consumers, but may have no control over the quality of service.
The Federal Trade Commission Chairman William E. Kovacic, testifying in support of the Prepaid Calling Card Consumer Protection Act said, "The bulk of the companies are legitimate, but the bad apples are threatening to ruin the bunch." Citing her two recent studies in her statement submitted to the House, University of Georgia Professor Dr. Julia Marlowe said, "My question is why are there fees at all? As long as there are fees, even disclosed ones, it is impossible to state the exact number of minutes the consumer will receive. A simpler solution would be for the providers to charge more for the cards and have no fees whatsoever. There are cards available that have no fees, with the exception of using the card at a pay phone."
Dependable Phone Cards' campaign recommends two ways to get all the minutes from your phone card: * Buy dependable phone cards with no fees. * Buy low denomination PINs and use the entire card in one call.

AT&T provides a quality, no fee card with no expiration date at a 5 minute rate. The Fee Free card only charges 2 per minute, but the card will expire 90 days after the first use. Consider how frequently you call and how long each call lasts before you select which card is right for you. If you do opt to buy an apparently lower rate calling card, do the math! Make sure you understand the rates in effect for your particular phone card and check the expiration date. Find the lowest rate phone cards, factor in all the fees and see how it compares to the no fee phone cards.
