Social media apps are a free alternative to traditional international calling services. The problem is that some people have limited or no internet access and resort to paid international calling services.
Boss Revolution Pinless and the Boss Revolution unlimited $5 plan are affordable alternatives.
For $5 a month with no contract, you can place unlimited international calls to over 50 countries including calls to mobile phones in more than 25 destinations.
Getting started with Boss Revolution's $5 plan is not straightforward. First, you must verify that your destination country is supported by selecting the country from the dropdown menu on bossrevolution.com.
A cell phone icon appearing next to your destination country indicates that calling cell phones in that country is allowed.
If your calling destinations are supported by the $5 Unlimited Plan, you can purchase it by creating a Boss Revolution account or downloading the mobile app.
Alternatively, you can use Boss Revolution Pinless to place international calls if the $5 plan does not include your calling destination.
