    Waste of money on world quest cards.

    I am trying to talk to my parents on worldquest card. It does not connect, gives an engaged sound, no ring, and they keep deducting money for every failed attempt of mine. I ended up talking from my friend's house.

      There really ought to be some sort of accountiblity for these companies. I mean if you get a card, better use it within a day or so because it amy not work later and the company would have disappeared too.

      I have used cards that were supposedly 30 mins but died after 20, upon inquiry they just claimed that the rates had changed, and that they had noted it on the card that the rates may change without notification.

      what a ripoff.

        This may help some folks here...

        There's a service called www.dialpad.com . You can use this service to call any US phone number via their web site for FREE. Folks in pakistan are using it like crazy. Connection maynot be good at times, but heck, for free!

                Folks:

                if the you folks in Pakistan (or India, ZZ) have computer and Internet access, which by the way is very cheap in Pakistan (or India, ZZ) nowadays, then they can call you instead and talk for hours. A one hour connection costs around 50 or so Rupees or about $1. So, you can talk for an hour for a buck (take that you 10-10 companies).

                So if I were you, I would hook up my folks over there with a computer and a connection and talk for hours and hours. If you already call alot, then you will most likely recover the cost of the "hook-up" within a year. Then, the rest is like free time.

                As for fraudiya, just ignore him. His jaali MBA from a local village madarssah shows up everytime he talks about $$$.

                          This dialpad thing has proved to be really pain in the neck for me. Not only that I used to get calls at 4:00am, I used to get calls every day, sometimes twice a day.

                          Recently, I have been out quite frequently so they got answering machine most of the time so now it has cooled down.
