**What are different
rounding options?
**For each country phonecards are with different rounding
options varing from 1 second rounding to 5 minutes rounding. 5
minutes rounding cards are cheaper than the 1 second cards.

**What are 1 second rounding
phone cards?
**These cards are billed based on the usage in second. For
example if you call for 30 seconds the card will be charged only
for 30 seconds. Assuming the card rate is 10 cents/second, then
you are chraged only 5 cents for this call.

**What are 1 minutes
rounding phone cards?
**These cards are billed for every minute of usage. Even
if you call for 20 seconds, you are charged for one minute.

**What is 3 minute rounding?
**The card is charged for every 3 minutes of usage. For
example if you use the card for a 40 seconds call, your phone
card is charged for three minutes. If you use the phonecard for 5
minutes 55 seconds call, the charges are for 6 minutes.

**I still do not understand
the difference between different rounding, how are they
different?
**Let us use some examples to explain it better. Assume
there are 3 different phone cards with different rounding:

Phonecard | Rate | Rounding |

1SECONDCARD | 29 cents/sec | 1 Second |

1MINUTECARD | 25 cents/sec | 1 Minute |

3MINUTECARD | 20 cents/sec | 3 Minute |

Now check out the cost for these different scenarios for each card:

(i) 30 seconds call

Phonecard | Cost for a 30 sec call | |

1SECONDCARD | 14.5 cents | Cheapest |

1MINUTECARD | 25 cents | |

3MINUTECARD | 60 cents | Expensive |

(ii) 58 seconds call

Phonecard | Cost for a 58 sec call | |

1SECONDCARD | 28 cents | |

The above examples explain which card is best under different situations. If you make long calls then go for the 3 minute billing phone card. For very short calls, 1SECONDCARD is best even though the per minute rates are more.
