Or you can just get a Tracfone and the international minutes are the same cost as the local minutes. The lowest rate is 4.4 cents per minute and that allows calls to 50 or more countries.

If you just choose the Sprint International Long Distance and Text add-on for $15/monthly you use your Anytime Minutes when calling select international destinations. and receive discounted calling rates to the rest of the world! That's what I use and I never go over and I text more than I call them with this feature!

Skype unlimited (to a specific country) if the country of your choice has skype unlimited plan. Except this unlimited plan, everything else by skype is super expensive.
