Be Careful about this company. I used to be a client and this is my very own experience.

Once you sign up, they gradually have a system of leaving junk voice messages on your mailboxes. This is a systematic plan to use up your minutes so that you pay higher per minute rates after your allocated 100 minutes are all used up. This is their way of making a "honest" buck.
