How do you call collect from overseas

I remember NetBank used to list the numbers to dial to make a collect call to the US from other countries. After their takeover I can't find that page. I did a search and found these two:

http://www.usa.att.com/traveler/index.jsp

http://consumer.mci.com/internationa...cessnos2.jsp#J

Are there other ways to make collect calls from abroad?

This is to make calls to my credit card company. I would like info on how to make calls from public and private phones.

Find out locally what to dial to connect to the local phone operator, dial that number, then tell him/her you want to make a collect call to the USA.

I called Citibank Visa collect once before this way.

This is exactly what I want to know before I leave the US. Many ppl in other countries don't even know what a collect call is, so I have always struggled to this info.
