Dial around long distance is a very good way to save money on long distance phone calls.   Some calling card type products offer special features not found with other cheap calling cards. We call these dial around plans or virtual calling plans.  We know of several calling card type products on the market that fall into this category.  Some offer good value for the money and others do not. The following are two popular dial around type products that consumers purchase, rarely return and use over and over again.
