To call abroad from your home phone, let alone your mobile might be quite costly. Most people use the prepaid phone cards that you can buy on the street or at post offices and kiosks. To find the best card we'd recommend asking the guys who sell them on the street because different cards have different rates for each country so it is best to say where you want to call and they'll advise you. In any event, here is how to dial abroad without a card:
