What is the "cost of a local call"?

The “cost of a local call” is the price your family or friend must pay to make a local call in their country of residence. This price is determined by that person’s telephone service provider. In many cases the cost is low or even part of a service package.

What if my family / friends / acquaintances do not live in the local area where the LíneaPaís number is available?

In this case, family and friends can either choose to call you at the closest Linea Pais number available to them, or they can always call your US number. Sometimes the price of in-country long distance will be cheaper for them than calling internationally to the US.

How much does LíneaPaís cost and how is it billed?

For a fixed monthly fee, you can receive unlimited calls from loved ones in your home country. The fee will appear on your local phone bill.
