My daughter is in Korea and has unlimited/free incoming minutes on her cell and incoming texts.

I use magicjack and can't make international calls.
My Verizion Wireless is like 2 bucks a minute.
Vonage is 25 bucks{plus fees} a month plus per minute charge.
Skype (fine print excludes Korea for cell phones)


anyone know of a way for me to be able to contact her thru her phone?
(it will take her a few pay days to get a computer then we'll start emailing)

UPDATE:


Went to the magicjack forum and found -

thru magicjack it's only 9 cents a minute....not free, but it beats Verizon! (didn't know magicjack did international)

Thanks for your help.

Does she have a laptop? Skpe is the only way to go in my opinion because you can really see the person. It's free all you need is a laptop, or a camera hooked up to a regualr computer.
