1 ChatTime is the only solution to offer FREE international calls between ChatTime users in 55 countries over the cellular network without requiring Wi-Fi or 3G data.
2 Calling cards are typically only useful to call a single country. Viber can only call other Viber users
3 Call from any country without looking for a Wi-Fi hotspot.
4 Calling cards are inconvenient to use and top-up, Wi-Fi apps require looking for a hotspot.
5 It is impossible to control the quality of Wi-Fi calls (ChatTime uses the cellular network). Calling cards are often poor in call quality.
6 ChatTime recognizes any prefix (011, 001, +, 00x, etc) and recognizes local vs international numbers - there is no need to reformat your contact numbers. Skype recognizes some prefixes but not all and does not recognize local numbers.
7 If you receive an incoming while using a Wi-Fi app then your call will be disconnected or placed on hold without warning. With ChatTime you can place your call on hold or merge calls.
8 Avoid calling someone in the middle of the night by easily checking the time at any destination you want to call.
9 Received a phone number in email or SMS but it's missing the country code? You can easily paste the number into ChatTime and edit it before dialing.
10 ChatTime let's you turn the display of your phone number ON or OFF for each call you place without having to dial any special codes like AT&T and Verizon.
11 Skype charges a $.079 connection fee (for USD accounts) for each international call. Calling cards often have connection fees, hang-up fees or play tricks like rounding calls in 3-5 minute increments. Line 2 requires a monthly subscription.
