Default Collect calls or a local call me number?

I really need some advice right now... My boyfriend just got transferred to warkworth so it's now long distance for him to call so my question is should I pay 30 dollars a month for a local number which will still mean it costs him money to call but a much cheaper rate and considering I send him money for his phone card it will cost me 30/mth + the money I send him to call or do I pay the 60 or 70 bucks for a collect call plan? I haven't done this before so I would like the cheapest route.... He was local now he isn't. Which company is better? Trappcall or call2talk??? Please someone give me some Input! I'm going crazy not talking to him cuz the long distance charges for him are outrageous

You can get freephoneline.ca you can forward the number to your cell phone or house phone. It would be a local number for him to call you. Hope this helps

I would go with TrappCall as well. They're as cheap as you can go and have extra perks that other companies don't have. Maybe call them and see if they can speak to you about which phone plan is your best option. It can also depend on how often he calls you because I know TrappCall has two different collect call plans. So make sure you ask them to explain both of them to you.

I hope you find something that works for you, good luck!
