International phone cards

I'm looking for a phone card to call China, US and Canada. Want to spend about £10. Can anyone recommend a good shop/site where I can get them.

I also need to know if it will work from a mobile phone (O2) because I do not have a landline.

Thanks. I clicked the Simply-fone site. So, if I dialled 0870 0415 404 then a international number, I can talk up to the amount of my inclusive minutes without charge?

0870 numbers aren't free to mobiles (or landlines), so I don't think so.

Be careful VNAM75.

whether 0870 numbers are included from your inclusive allowance depends on your network. 3, Orange and vodafone don't allow them, I'm certain that O2 do.

Another option is a mobile world sim. Available from Carphone Warehouse the sim costs £10 and that includes £10 airime. US and canadian calls are 5p a minute, whether landline or mobile. To landlines in China it is 6p a minute and 7p a minute to mobiles. you can check the rates at click here

To clarify its calls to US and Canadian landlines and mobiles....

Thanks. I'm on an O2 cross network contract with 200 inclusive minutes per month of which I only use about a half. I have called 0870 nummbers before and these have been included in the monthly allowance. But O2 do say non standard 0870 rates are not included, whatever that means.
