Recommendations for Saudi Student Association members in the U.S.
If you are a Saudi Students Association member who currently resides in the U.S., we recommend two simple yet extremely robust services: The Flex Plan and Global Call Connect.
The Flex Plan is an outstanding pre-paid service that offers cheap international call rates to Saudi Arabia and hundreds of other destinations around the world. All international destinations have special 30-day discounted rates, and you can get FREE minutes on sign up. The 30-day promotional rate is 2.4¢ per minute to a fixed land line in Riyadh, 7.4¢ per minute to a fixed land line elsewhere in Saudi Arabia and 12.7¢ per minute to a mobile phone in Saudi Arabia. When the promotional period ends, rates revert to 4.5¢ per minute to a fixed land line in Riyadh, 10.5 per minute to a fixed land line elsewhere in Saudi Arabia, and 20.7¢ per minute to a mobile phone in Saudi Arabia.
This service offers international rates that are among the lowest in the industry. For callers who use an iPhone, BlackBerry, or other smart phone, the service is even more attractive. Our free iPhone application and our free SmartPlug software for BlackBerry and other smartphone users allow you to make direct international calls using the address book, recent call history, or directly on the dial pad. You can now make an international call from an iPhone or Blackberry without the cumbersome dialing
procedures of the typical calling card.
Some people prefer paying for what they consume on a monthly basis, with no pre-payment taken from their credit card. For Saudi Arabiaese Student Association members who prefer a post-paid service, Global Call Connect service is a terrific international calling service that offers cheap rates to Saudi Arabia and around the world. The rate to a fixed land line in Saudi Arabia is just 11¢ per minute while the rate to a mobile phone in Saudi Arabia is 20.5¢ per minute.
The services utilizes local access numbers in major U.S. cities and other major cities around the world. Global Call Connect is ideal for those who wish to make international calls from a cell phone and bypass the exhorbitant international rates charged by their cellular provider
