errrr....dial the number...???

It is possible to make low cost internet based calls using your smartphone.

Look for "Tango" or "Viber" on the internet........

Hope this helps.......

Robboat thanks for your answer though I'm looking to have a per minute based call rates..yes I tried Tango and Viber before but it's hopeless, the signal is not really good on the location I'm calling. Do you have other options?

Have you used the discount SIM's from "Lebara" or other carriers...?

They often have good rates for calling specific countries.....
You can also buy international call packs from the service provider - e.g. Virgin, Optus, Telstra

If you have a poor signal...can you move to a location with a good signal to make the call...?

No doubt the quality of international call from AU mobile provider is good, but it's too expensive for me, I need something cheaper-- even cheaper than Skype. I can’t afford blowing $70/month with Telstra for less included value, or using optus/virgin for $62/month above respectively for phone bill. I cannot afford these rates at the moment but I miss my family I still need to call them though..

I’m using Global Call app to make international calls from my mobile. Somewhat similar to Skype with a slight cheaper rate for some countries. This app uses wifi or 3G connection to provide the users cheap international calls on iPhone and other iOS enabled device. For now they are giving a $1.50 free credit upon signing up. Others do not need to install the app before you can reach them, be it a mobile or a landline, Phone calls via Global Call are basically the same as ordinary phone calls only a lot more cheaper.
