If you have a loved one in Iraq and your phone rings, it could be them calling you on a CyberPhone from Cybertel Communications.
Privately held and backed Cybertel has madeCyberPhones available at exchange stores. The phones, which attach to the back of a computer,are free with the purchase of 500 minutes of calling time at 10 cents a minute. Subsequent calling rates back home are 4.9 cents a minute.
Cybertel rates are far below that of more familiar phone providers. For example, AT&T rates from Iraq back to the U.S. average between 28 and 30 cents a minute.
But there's more than just the savings. Hearing the voice of the one you love, calling you to let you know they are safe and thinking of you, is priceless.
