Using an international calling card is the most common way to "dial-around" AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile to avoid the expensive rates charged by their cell phone international calling plans. They will allow you to direct dial international calls using 011 in front of the international number, same as on a landline, but their standard rates are well over $1/minute in most cases. They all have discounted international rates for an additional monthly service charge of around $4-$5 but, even with the discount, their rates are still significantly higher than what you can get otherwise.
Compare rates for cell phone international calls to China for example:
Rates for cell phone international calls to India are even higher but the least expensive dial-around still comes in at only $0.03.
