Frequently Asked Questions

Calling Card Benefits/Why Calling Cards Online?

  • Calling Card Benefits
  • Prepaid calling cards sales are skyrocketing. Using prepaid calling cards wisely can help you control your phone bills. Prepaid calling cards are also very convenient. For consumers who do not want to switch their long distance carriers, stand-alone prepaid calling cards are the answer. You receive mobility (calling from any phone including cellular), independence from local carrier and anonymity. Prepaid calling cards are also extremely popular with college students, truck drivers, travelers, and international visitors. Often you can find the absolute LOWEST rate to a particular international country by using prepaid calling cards rather than direct dial 1+ service or 1010 dial. We invite you to search our prepaid calling cards rates and purchase your prepaid calling cards online.
  • Why Calling Cards Online?
  • Buying calling cards online is very convenient and it has a lot of advantages:
    • Wide range of the prepaid calling cards in one place
    • Easy to compare calling rates and select the best phone calling card for you
    • Instantly get the PIN at any time and any place where you have an access to the Internet (go through verification to eliminate any delays)
  • How do these prepaid calling cards work?
  • You simply pay for the calling time in advance and reduce the pre-paid balance as you make calls. To make a call you dial Toll Free Access Number, enter your "PIN" number, and dial the phone number you wish to call.

PIN-Free Access and Permanent PIN

  • PIN-Free Access! How does it work?
  • No PIN to remember! You make a call without entering PIN. When you sign up, you register your phone number with us. It can be your cell phone, work phone or home phone. Your phone number becomes your permanent Personal Identification Number (PIN). When you dial from registered phone, the telecom switches automatically recognize your number. You never have to enter a hard-to-remember PIN!
  • Can I call from different phone?
  • To place a call from any not registered phone number just dial access number, enter your PIN (for "Jupiter" card enter your 10 digits registered phone number and your 4 digits password assigned by you during sign up), and dial destination number.
  • Permanent PIN
  • Permanent PIN is the PIN with No Expiration date. When you used up your prepaid phone calling card or the balance is low you can add funds to your PIN at any time.
  • How do I refill Permanent PIN?
  • To refill your Permanent PIN find a proper phone calling card ("Jupiter", or "Express New"), select amount you wish to add and press the button "Buy or Refill", or alternatively login into "My Account" -> "My Permanent PIN(s)" -> select phone calling card and amount you wish to add and press the button "Refill".
    Every time you purchase or refill a phone calling card with Permanent PIN you add funds to your existing PIN.
