- How does CALLback save money
- CALLback saves money by reducing the overall cost
of a call by
enabling the call to be re-originated
FROM the U.S .
- The deregulation of the U.S. telecommunications
industry and the free market conditions that exist in the U.S. have resulted in the lowest long distance rates
of any country. This low rate condition helped create the strategy for saving money on international calls by using
call re-origination. This is otherwise known as a 'callback' service.
- What is call re-origination?
- The re-origination of a call occurs when a 'callback'
computer located inside the U.S. receives an inbound call from a callback customer or subscriber.
- The customer is issued a unique U.S. telephone
number upon subscription. The U.S. telephone number known as the access number is associated in the computer with
the customers 'callback' number.
- The computer is programmed to detect the inbound
trigger call and, within seconds, automatically sends back a call to the pre designated phone number of the subscriber.
This 'callback number' can be any telephone number in the world.
- When the subscriber receives this return call
from the computer, the user can then enter the digits of the desired call destination phone number located in any
- Steps Necessary to Re-originate
- The steps necessary to re-originate a call are:
- 1. Initial call or 'trigger' call from the customer goes the the specially programmed computer
in the U.S. which detects all inbound calls. This call is not connected,
hence this is an incomplete call from the customers location.
- 2. Within seconds the computer sends the registered subscriber, at the pre programmed phone
number, a U.S. connection and emits a voice prompt that asks the user to enter the desired call destination number.
The user enters the digits of the phone number that he/she wishes to call and the call is processed immediately.
- The Bridging of Two Calls
What actually takes place in making a call using a callback service is the bridging of 'two' calls.
- The two calls are:
- First Call: The call returned back to the subscriber after the computer detects the inbound trigger
Second Call: The connection to the users desired call destination number.
These two calls originate FROM the U.S. even though the subscriber may be located in any country.
Both of these two calls are combined together and charged at super low U.S. rates (the callback company rates)
instead of local monopoly rates.
This entire process is done automatically with no action required on the part of the callback customer except to
dial the U.S. access number and wait a few seconds for the return call from the U.S. computer.
- Can using a callback service
save you money no matter what country you are calling ?
- Savings typically occur when the subcriber is
located on a continent other than the party that is being called. In other words, savings do not usually occur
if calling inside your own country or to a neighboring country.
Savings are usually achieved on intercontinental
calls. Intercontinental calls usually
always result in significant savings using callback.
As an example, if you are in Brazil and want to call Argentina, you will not save using a callback service. However,
if you are calling North America or Europe or Pacific Rim countries from Brazil your savings will be significant
There are exceptions where savings will be enjoyed even when calling to your own continent but it rarely happens.
One exception is calling from one intra European country to another and calling to or from Mexico to other North
American destinations such as the U.S. or Canada.
- It costs less to call Brazil
from the U.S., than to call the U.S. from Brazil
The concept of the 'call back' is really nothing new. People have been using a call back strategy to save money
For years, family members outside the U.S. 'signal' their U.S. family by calling and letting the phone ring once.
This incomplete call would be at NO cost because no connection was made.
The family members located in the U.S., (always with the lower phone rates) would receive the signal and 'call
back' the family members overseas.
Any caller in any country now has an alternative to paying high local monopoly rates with CALLback.
International call back,
specifically CALLback, serves both personal and business users.
