Our DS will try to call from Pusan South Korea sometime this weekend. At this point, we've not heard the choices he has from any port's phone service. He has no international phone, satelite phone, etc. He does have skype on his computer, but my comptuer is having trouble pulling up skype, though I've used it for more than a year now. I have heard that ports sell calling cards, which we assume are to be used from a landline. We also know skype international phone services can be purchased for use from skype on a computer to a home landline or cell phone for unlimited inexpensive phone calls per month depending on the country/s. I doubt DS has made that purchase yet, though we've emailed him about it and is currently in the Pacific. Oh Ye wise ones of ages past and present, are there other options out there for calling/talking from ports? Thanks!
