International Callback is a service where you call a special access number in the United States and let it ring once, then hang up (there is no charge for this call because it did not complete). The Switch in the United States then calls you back at a pre-assigned number that you provide. When you answer this call you will get a prompt asking you to enter the number you wish to reach. You are now using the US phone system at 20% to 80 % less than the local telephone companies international rates.
By routing all your international calls through the United States and strategically placed worldwide sites, specialized service providers make the LOWER RATES and COVERAGE of the U.S. phone system available directly to your phone. And since all your calls are handled by state-of-the-art computers, all of its special features and advanced abilities are also at your disposal. So, after you sign up with us, we assign you a special unlisted U.S. phone number that you will call and then hang up after one ring.
Since you hang up BEFORE a connecting answer, there is no charge for the call. However, our computer has been signaled that you called and it will IMMEDIATELY call you back.
At this point you simply answer the phone and dial the number you wish to call. That's all there is to it.
The program does NOT have multiple levels of menus or long instructions to listen to. Lowering dramatically the cost of international long distance calls is very easy. When you finish talking you can either hang up OR you can press the star key twice. The key keeps you connected to the computer so that you can place another call. You can use the key as many times as you like.
You DO NOT have to live in a touch-tone dialing country to use the service. However, your phone must be able to produce touch-tones in order for you to use. Most phones have a tone/pulse switch that you simply flip to the tone position when you answer the dialback call.

Request GlobalTel's "Cascade Callback". If you are in a country where you have several individual lines but they do not "hunt" automatically; that is, if one line is busy and the calls do not automatically roll over to the next line, you need our "Cascade Callback". Give us all the phone numbers in your office and the order in which you would like us to try them. When you trigger a call, GlobalTel will call your first location number. If no-one answers (or the phone is busy) we will call the second location number 45 seconds later. If the second attempt is not successful, the third and fourth attempts each will occur 90 seconds apart. Some customers use this as a 'follow me' service so that we try them first at their office location. If that isn't successful we try a secondary location such as their home. If that isn't successful we try their mobile phone etc. Keep in mind that this will not work if you have an answering machine. If on the first attempt we reach an answering machine, we will consider the call completed and will not try again.
