Distance Calling Solutions
ideas in accessing InterACTIVE CHURCH at reasonable long distance
rates? The list below provides you with possible solutions:
CELL (MOBILE) PHONE MINUTES - Many cellular phone
plans provide for free long distance usage on weekends. Check
with your cellular phone service provider. If you are calling
in using your cellular phone, you may wish to use a headset
so that you don't have to hold the phone up to your ear for
the duration of the service.
DISTANCE CALLING CARDS - try the 99¢ Stores for
a $0.01 per minute calling card. [click
here for their web site]
- LINGO - If you live in the USA and have a broadband internet
connection, this is the service for you! Lingo is
a "VOIP" (voice over internet protocol click
here for article from FCC) technology. For a flat $19.95/month
charge, you are able to make all of your local calls, calls
to anywhere in the USA and Canada AND calls to 17 countries
in western Europe AT NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE AND WITH NO MINUTE
RESTRICTIONS! The Lingo box connects to your broadband modem
via a router and you use your regular phones. Automatically
comes with tons of features like voice mail, call forwarding,
call waiting, caller ID, conference calling. (This is the
service I use.) If you sign up for this service, please
mention you were referred by Mark Mohlenbrock, eMail address
firstname.lastname@example.org and YOU and I (CSDirectory.com)
will both receive a $25 credit on our bills
after you've been signed up for 90 days. Its an easy way to
contribute to this project! Plus, currently, the first
month is free.
VOIP options, see

- Skype is a FANTASTIC "peer to peer" telephony
service for the internet and is FREE (when you talk computer
to computer). This allows you to "Skype" (call)
another Skype user and talk to them through your computer.
(I use this service too.) Skype works best with a headset
- and there are many to choose from (Click
here for a good place to buy a headset below list price).
You can also "SkypeOut" which means
you can call a regular phone number from your computer using
Skype for a small charge per minute. See: www.skype.com

WITH YOUR PHONE CARRIER FOR SPECIAL PACKAGES - You
may wish to check with your home telephone carrier to see
if they have special plans for calling long distance. (Recently
I had a plan through my then carrier, Quest, which allowed
me to call anywhere in the USA for 5 cents a minute and capped
the charge at $20 per month. www.qwest.com)
