Best U.S. to Afghanistan Phone Calling Cards

These are the two best prepaid international phone calling cards for families to place calls from the U.S. to soldiers in Afghanistan that have an unlocked GSM cellphone. Note that you need a card that will place calls to a cell phone, not a land-line phone.

Note: These "phonecards" are actually sent to you in email and consist merely of a special PIN that you use to make the call.
