is it possible to make international calls with a cell phone? i tried it with mine but it says im not authorized
i tried it on my mom's cingular cell phone, i get a different message. I don't have a house phone, only a cell phone.
is there anything else i can do except going to the store, buying an expensive phone card and calling from a pay phone?

help please asap

Contact your carrier. If anything you should be able to use a calling card with your cell phone...

Hope this helps.

You cannot make international calls with your sprint phone. If you get a phone with T-mobile service, then you can call international.

No, what he means is CALL SPRINT, dammit. They're the ones that are providing you the service. They would know.

Jesus.

BRING BACK THE PRIVATE FORUM. Now I have to wade through this crap again. :(

Ehh there is no way in hell that counts for international calls too. Its domestic only. (And/or canada, depending on the plan.)

Don't take his word for it. If you do, you're even more of an idiot than I thought. Call Sprint.

You can call international with att wireless. It will usually run atleast 1.29 a minute or so, in Russia, it costs more tha 4 dollars a min if i remember correctly. And if you are using your cell phone over seas and you recive a voicemail you will be charged for that message even if you do not answer the phone.
