How to buy cheap minutes to call people in Haiti for $0.19 easily

Calling and texting people in Haiti is still expensive despite having Facebook Messenger, Whatsapp, Snapchat, Viber, and many others that allow you to communicate with anyone anywhere in the world for free.

Using the apps may not be an issue for someone who lives in the U.S. because the Internet is easily accessible, cheap, and even free sometimes.

But to someone who lives in Haiti where the Internet is less accessible, expensive, and most of the time slow, it is a big deal because the cost can add up very quickly.

Another problem is the steep fees the phone card companies charge when you use their card to call Haiti. For instance, let's say you are in the U.S. you buy a $2-$5 prepaid phone card to call Haiti.

They will charge you $0.33 per minute, a connection fee, a service charge fee, and a weekly fee until there is nothing left on the card.

In addition, their customer service phone number does not always work when you call to complain.

Basically you are wasting tons of money …
