TalkLoop or Onesuite?

Postby Narika99 » Sun, 18 Dec 2005 10:37:37 -0500

I was using Onesuite for sometime, but found http://www.TalkLoop.com is a lot cheaper and more reliable. TalkLoop has no expiration if I can just make one call every six months.

Anyone using either?

Not seen it before!

Hi Narika99,

I have not personally heard of Talk Loop before but they seem very similar to http://www.iCallAbroad.com. If you want to find more information about, some good questions to ask is:
1) How long they have been in service?
2) Can they provide customer testimonials?
3) Will they refund if you are not happy?

Some good things to look out for

Thank you, but iCallAbroad.com rates are slightly more expensive than onesuite and talkloop. I check out some other forums and found talkloop is pretty good, so I have already signed up

I wonder ~ MetroPCS ?

Postby Miss Charlie » Tue, 07 Mar 2006 10:31:34 -0500

Is MetroPCS good?

I have no credits at US, and the cell phone company requires a deposite for two hundred dollars if I don't have a US State Credit Card, where can I get a good and resonable cell phone plan?

Thank you so much.

:roll: :roll:

Advice

It sounds like you are trying to sign up for a monthly cell phone plan which will be hard if you have no credit - hence why they are asking for a deposit!

What you can do is go the prepaid route and some examples are available:
http://www.internationalstudent.com/prepaid_phones/

You simply buy the phone and credit up front

Hope this helps

I've not used TalkLoop. But I've used Onesuite since the start of my term here. Rate to the UK is $.02 by the minute. I also have my mobile that my family pays for, but I only use it when I call them.

OneSuite Definitely

OneSuite, OneSuite, and once more OneSuite for sure. We have used OneSuite for about two years now at the univeristy to place international calls, to get a hold of student alumni and we are very pleased. They have very cheap rates to so many countries. I have also suggested OneSuite to our international students. I figure you can't go wrong with good service that won't break the bank when you are in school!

BKT :lol:

I have not used talk loop so I really can not tell if they're good or not.

My cousin in the US is using Onesuite for calling her parents here in the Philippines and I can also use Onesuite via their Broadband service using my computer for calling any parts of the world including US (2.5c per minute)

For almost 2 years now, Onesuite has been good to us.

Talkloop or Onesuite?

Onesuite of course.

Cheaper and more realiable for me plus it has VoIP features/services now.
