Having international friends is great. You can crash at their pad when you travel abroad. They can teach you bad words in a foreign language. You get enough of them, and you have your own little league of nations. Of course, the worst part is calling them. International rates can really put a dent in your bank account.
Enter Rebtel, the latest inexpensive way to call your friends across the pond. Make calls for about 2¢ a minute. Better yet, you can make free calls if both parties use Rebtel. Once you sign up, Rebtel gives you a local number you use to call your international friends. The best part is that you don't have to run out and buy a VOIP phone like other cheap phone services. Your current cell phone is all you need.
