A very quick query -

could anyone suggest a suitable phonecard for making calls from Southern American countries to the United Kingdom?

There are several online sites that offer callback systems from Latin America to Europe. They are very cheap and reliable. You top up your online credit and then have to dial a pinnumber in from whatever country you are in, the phone then hangs up and rings you back, once it has rung you back you dial you international number and it starts debiting your account. These are very good cheap and effective. I will see if I can find the name of the sites i used. (they work in most countries, not all, check with the site owners before signing up)

When I was there, I just used the plentiful phone and internet cafes. You go in, they give you a booth, you dial, you talk, you hang up, you pay. It's a good way to go if you aren't planning on doing a lot of yaking with people back home.
