Q: How much does a telephone call cost?
A: To call the U.S., it costs about $1.50 per minute and after 10:00 PM it is about $1.00 per minute. You can reduce those rates considerably depending on when you call, and whether you "top-up" your cellphone balance on a special "double-up/triple-up" day (which occur once or twice a month). Avoid International Roaming charges or phone calls charged to your hotel room; those can be very expensive. You can also reduce the charge by using the 10-10-199 prefix.
