    You need to pick up a phone card that specifically states International phone card. I know that AT&T sells them at the post office or used to but you can look at wal-mart or costco but again look for International. When you open the card it should have a folded paper with a long list of phone numbers for operators around the world. You find the operator for the country you are in and dial that number then tell them where you want to call.

    You might just consider buying the card there you have a much better shot of it working. I took a group of Girl Scouts to Europe last year and several of them had "international" phone cards that we could never make work.

    I have used an ATT International phone card from the Caribbean with no problems. I bought it at Sam's Club, Wal-Mart sells them too. Make sure the PIN hasn't been scratched off the back.

    We just used the phones in the Carribean..mostly on the docks. They were pretty inexpensive. You didn't mention if you were cruising, but if you are, the phones are on the dock, and in most of the first areas you hit. Also, as an aside they have internet cafes in even the poorest towns, about .10 - .20 a minute.
    We used our Sam's card before we found the cheap phones..which used up lots of minutes.
