Telephoning and Faxing.


If you do not have a working mobile or cell phone, you may find it easiest to use public payphones. You must not use your host family's telephone without permission and you must pay for all calls, including local ones.


All calls are cheaper after 6 p.m. and at weekends. If you want to telephone abroad, you can either reverse the charges (transferred or 'collect' call), or ask the operator the cost of the call after you have finished (ADC).


The number of the international operator is 155. International calls are cheaper after 6pm. Calls cannot usually be made at Post Offices, but payphones can be found in many locations.


Some phones take coins, some take credit cards and others take phonecards which you can buy in many shops.
