How to call China from USA and Canada

Whether you just arrived into the USA or Canada or if you are there for some time, and you want to call China, we might have some special calling plans that you could use to make cheap calls. Many people arrive from different parts of the world, in the hope of starting their own business, or simply in a try to realize their personal hopes and aspirations. However, in most cases, that doesn't mean a complete disconnection from the places of origin, and so, certain actions are still required for this.

Calling would be one of the most accessible solution, and it works in real-time, which means it can provide both information and genuine emotions for both the caller, and the called person. Furthermore, due to the costs that most international calls have, it is one of the cheapest action, considering the potential return as well.
After you selected one of the calling cards, all you have to do is call, and here is how to do so:
- call the access code and wait for the prompt message
- dial 011, the code for international calls from USA or Canada
- after this, dial 86, the country code for China
- then, dial the area code
- lastly, dial the number you wish to call (6-8 digits) and wait for the system to establish your call

An example of a call to Beijing:
- 011 86 10 xxxx xxxx
Another example of a call to Shanghai:
- 011 86 21 xxxx xxxx

If you need to make it even easier, some of the numbers that you call more frequently, or your prefered ones, can be added to a speed-dial function. It allows you to add up to 10 numbers and all you have to do after dialing the access code is to press a designed key, from 1 to 9, as well as 0, and the rest will be processed by the system.
Another option for you, which is also free, is the auto-recharge option. Here is how it works: when your credit drops below a certain amount, usually $5, you can have it replenished automatically, as long as you provided valid information for a payment. Autorecharge can be activaded for your desired amount, starting from $10 and everytime it is required, the payment will be completed accordingly.
Rewarded contributions
If you already used our services, and had a pleasant experience, you may also refer some of your friends, family members, colleagues or basically everyone who also needs to call home or international. For this cases, whenever they reach a recharge of $20, you will also get a bonus of $5, creding which you can use to call international.
App to facilitate your calls
Do you want to make it easier? There is Nalo, the app that you can download for free, and use to call from mostly anywhere, with an internet connection. Just install it and after you have added credit, you may call with Aquatel's cheap rates.
