Communications Services is no longer issuing new UCSB Residential Calling Cards. Current cards will remain active as long as they are used at least once every six months. Cards showing no activity for six months will be cancelled.
Prepaid calling cards are widely available from retailers in stores or online. We recommend that you compare calling card plans and costs carefully since the rates can vary considerably. If you will be calling outside the country, you should also consider obtaining a card specifically designed for international use.
Global Prepaid Long Distance
An alternate prepaid solution is CellularLD™, a web-based service that lets you place low-cost domestic and international calls to over 220 countries worldwide from your cell phone, using your current plan. There are no connection fees, surcharges, or maintenance fees, and when you register your cell phone, you can place calls without using a PIN.
