So I just bought a Prepaid Phone card - How do I use it?
Using a phone card is easy – follow these simple steps:

  1. Dial the toll free access number that was included with your e-mail.
  2. When you hear the voice prompt, enter your PIN number or authorization code
  3. When prompted, dial the destination number:

For US calls, dial 1 + Area Code + Number

For International calls, dial 011 + Country Code + City Code + Number

  1. If you want to make another call without hanging up, press ##.

How can I tell how many minutes I have available?
The number of minutes available is determined by where you are calling to and the rate to that country. Each time you use your Phone Card to place a call, the number of minutes available will be announced to you before the call connects.

When I try to call I get the message: "Your call cannot be completed as dialed?" Why?
There may be several reasons for this.  First, make sure to follow the exact instructions we emailed you when you purchased your Phone Card and make sure you dialed the correct phone number. Also be aware that some pay phones and cellular phones have restrictions. Check the number and dial again - if the problem happens again, please contact customer service at customerservice@IndiaMama.com .
