I don't think it works from Europe. I bought a US-SIM from Truphone (you get a UK-number and for $5 extra a US-Number). Try to get one with the area-code of your man and possibly prefix also. They do that. I have one of those. Works flawlessly for almost 3 years.

Unhappy Phone calls

Hi My Lo is in Clallam bay , as recommended by someone else on this site i went to truephone and got a USA Washington number for him to phone me, he gave me a phone number to set up a phone account which is through connectnetwork when i gave my phone number and tried to put funds on his account, they will not accept my credit/debit card as it is a uk card and they only except cards that have a usa address connected to the card So does anyone know how i can put funds on his account or can he phone my number and have it collect help please

I have tried Connect Network and it never worked for me that's why I use Truphone with a US-number. I might've recommended it to you. It was recommended to me as well a few years ago.
As being from Europe I've never had luck with Connect Network, I was able to put money via Western Union on the account but that was only with horrendous fees. I've been using this US-number now for almost 3 years and it's awesome! I just send my boyfriend money for calls.

Thats the problem I have the USA number with truephone {it was recomended by you )but he said i have to put the money on this phone call account with connectnetwork for him to phone me , I'm just getting in touch with a friend that lives in America as she has a debit card that she uses for connectnetwork to see weather if I transfer money in to her paypal account then she transfer it to her debit card, a long time ago i did this with her when i needed to buy some stamps from them so I am hoping this may be the route for me So could I send money to his books through JPay and him pay them from his end

I think Jeff pays about $ 2,50 per call from him to me... I give him $100 per month and it lasts all month. Sometimes he cannot call but then he's got extra. So far we're talking each day (unless the phones are broken or I'm broken )

Get vonage. I was in the UK wondering how I could put funds on the phone. I managed to have a friend put funds on a US debit card and had a US # in the UK. About 11 pounds a month. Was worth it.
