Phones Programs/Partners - Calling Pakistan?!

I Want to know if people have been having problems with their sprint FONCARD I noticed my bills were really high... Finally this month I thought about it and looked at my bill. Well about five calls from Nevada to California, were billed as calls from NV to Pakistan, at about $9 a minute!! Also some calls from Denver were about $4 a minute, yet KS was $1 a minute.. Also Quintana Roo MX was over $4 a minute, when the operator qouted about $1! These damm $$$'s add up! I need a new LD company, and a new Cell phone cause my NK6190 doesn't roam in some places worth Sh*t,I think I will buy a world phone. calling cards are killing me.....
I just had the same problem with sprint calling South Africa. They charge over $3.50 a minute . I was calling my daughter while she and her husband were traveling there. The day I got the $200. phone bill I switched to MCI for the AA 20/20 partner and bought 125 minutes from Priceline for $40. dollars. When I taught school in Karachi 20 years ago we did not even have a phone. Probably best because I would have had a big phone bill as we taught school there for 2 years.

Sprint, AT&T, and MCI all have an International Calling Plan with a fee of $3 or so per month. I know details only of the MCI plan: Plan Rates apply to 1. calls from home, 2. MCI Card calls from anywhere in the USA, 3. MCI Card calls TO anyone in the USA FROM a foreign country, and 4. Collect calls placed via the MCI Operator from abroad and received/accepted at the subscriber's US home. I love it so much that I passed up the Sprint/NW 40K promo.
