99 cents for 99 minutes sounds great. Calling Japan for 5.9 cents a minute is pretty good, too. Even if the price might go up a little without notice, it wouldn't shoot up sky high. That was my thought.
A friend of mine sent me a card. In the meantime, I bought five cards. It doesn't work. The local number the company claims for my number is not the same area code as mine. The friend sent three cards for her mother out of state. It doesn't work.
Does the company want to argue about the concept of what "local numbers" are? Consumers are not all linguists. The ads says "Call anywehre" but please include "But not from anywhere."
I guess that is how they make money. Is it ethical?
