Another Iowa # Minute Stealer:

Pat Phelan over at Roam4Free decided to enter the “let’s make money off incoming calls to Iowa” game and created his own service called Dial 712-858-8094, wait for the prompt, then dial 011+country code+number. Countries permitted include: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil (Rio De Janerio), Canada, China, Christmas & Coco’s Island, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Poland (Warsaw), Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, UK. USA is listed, but it didn’t work when I tried it.

I presume this only works for landlines, not for mobile phones (except in Canada, where they don’t charge more).
