Purchasing calling cards to Colombia can be a confusing task. With so many providers, services, types of cards, and competing local phone companies, it might become difficult to discern what type of card suits your needs. If you do a little bit of checking around, you can save yourself money and time in the long run.

When you're choosing a calling card to Colombia, you should also make sure that the phone service provider is equipped to offer access to your particular region. Many regions are divided between the small phone service providers who sell prepaid calling cards. The cards will often only be compatible with the service in the provider's region. You can usually determine if the card can be used from your area through information provided on the packaging or on the card itself. If you can't find the information, a retail clerk may be able to help, or call the provider's customer assistance line, which is also usually printed on the card.

Reliable Calling Cards to Columbia

Before you purchase any type of calling cards, you should do some basic research on the provider. First of all, find out about the integrity of the provider itself. Unfortunately, with so many calling card providers on the market, a few of them are bound to be scam artists. Some scam calling card companies sell non-working cards, unreliable cards, or bootleg cards featuring PINs from preexisting cards. Another scam involves printing multiple batches of cards with the same number, and selling the same card repeatedly. This allows the scam artists to profit from the same account, while several people, unbeknownst to each other, fight for the prepaid minutes. Unethical card providers have also been known to purchase a large supply of calling time from a large company, then intentionally fail to deliver on payment, causing the cards to be deactivated and worthless after a lot of them have already been sold.

You can sometimes identify a reliable calling card provider by doing some basic background research. Scam artists are forced to constantly change the name of their companies, as they quickly develop a bad reputation. If a company has no apparent history, it might be a red flag that everything is not on the level. You can often find out information on a provider's reputation by searching the Internet. Newsgroups and bulletin boards, as well as consumer advocacy sites, can usually help you separate the good from the bad.
