You can buy phone cards for service members in Iraq from the military exchange even if you aren’t otherwise eligible to shop there.

“Military Exchange Prepaid Calling Cards

“The Department of Defense Military Exchanges have been authorized to sell the following prepaid calling cards to individuals and organizations who wish to purchase these cards for our troops serving overseas in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

“IMPORTANT INFORMATION
The Military Exchange Global Prepaid Calling Cards are being offered for sale to customers not otherwise authorized to make purchases through the Exchange Online Store. Authorized Exchange customers please visit our regular online shopping pages to purchase calling cards.

“PREPAID PHONE CARDS
While other retailers sell AT&T prepaid cards, only the Military Exchange/AT&T prepaid cards offer the best value for calls made from an AT&T phone center in deployed areas. The following chart shows the price per minute when calling from Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait to the U.S. using the Military Exchange/AT&T prepaid cards as compared to a well known retailer’s price per minute. ”

My family has a virtual calling card called Net2Phone . It is really cheap, and is easy to manage.
