Sunday, January 26, 2014

Calling USA, Canada, and UK from Thailand at just 1 Baht per minute, that too directly from a 3G SIM card without using any additional calling card may sound unbelievable but its true. The special 1 Baht per minute rate is available for calling 230 destinations worldwide including a host of European countries, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Australia, Israel, Japan, Taiwan, and New Zealand. Singapore and China can be called at 1.5 Baht per minute while for Russia the rate is 5 Baht per minute. 7 percent tax is additionally deducted from the SIM card balance on each call's total charge. This amazing prepaid SIM card comes with free talk time and free unlimited data usage too. OK, stop wondering and meet the 3G Tourist Inter SIM by True Move Thailand.

International Call Rates Chart with True Move 3G Tourist Inter SIM

To get the really low international call rates, one needs to use the Economy Service by dialing 00600 before the country code. I have used the Economy Service for calling India (3 Baht per minute) and got perfect call quality. The rates for landlines and mobile phones are different for some countries and landline rates are mostly cheaper.  For Premium Service, dial 006 instead of 00600. To confirm applicable rates for a particular country, call 1331 from a True Move phone. Also Read: Thailand SIM Card Scam
