Cost effective phone cards in Spain

I'm still looking for the best phone card to use for local calls in Spain. I've run into a wall searching for these cards online. Most of them, as stated on comfi dot com include an outrageous 99cent surcharge for calls made from a payphone.

Of course, I ONLY use payphones with my phone card and only this way, in addition to skype can I totaly replace my cell phone in expensive roaming zones (like spain). What I do is go to a payphone, and make calls using a toll free 1-800, or local equivalent. Thay way I can make the call for next to nothing (or free), and talk at low rates, 2 or 3 cents/minute. Last time I did this, I managed to squeeze a 10 dollar card for near to 3 months. I'd like to redo this in Spain, and elsewhere in Europe thereafter.

dont know if you can get hold of a euro direct card, they are very cheap to phone abroad, more so if used from a land line, you can phone for free using the 900 number and then have about 300 minutes of talk time, no connection fee.

or use the other number and pay a local connection fee but have, i think its 800 minutes of talk time.

if you use a mobile, vodafone is best for the charges and there is a thing to do with the card to make it cheaper, but i am hols at the moment in england and cant remember the code.

i will post it next week if your still interested.

all the best
