Why do some phone cards become discontinued?

While we attempt to create a hi-quality, revenue producing line of phone cards, there will be instances in which the cards perceived to be winners simply end up being losers for reasons other than poor performance.

Carriers create phone cards by anticipating usage and profit. They may also incorporate additional fees (e.g. maintenance fees, connection fees) in attempt to make more of a profit. Knowing this, the savvy phone card consumer attempts to discover ways to get maximum usage from a phone card. One such way is to purchase in smaller denominations and burn the card in one call, thereby avoiding the other fees. Thus, the carrier does not receive the additionally anticipated profit. Result… the card is withdrawn. In worse cases, a heavy loss because a carrier to cease business.

Therefore, we must continue to seek alternative products. We’ll do our best to convey these changes to you as promptly as possible!
