At some times in your life – joyous or tragic moments – you simply need to have service you can rely on. Calls about the passing of a loved one or the birth of a new family member should never be dropped, nor should they cost a fortune to make! Well, if you’re going to be calling Greece more often, you’re going to want to learn about Vonage’s great international plans.

So your Greek relatives want to hear from you or others in the U.S. more.

Makes sense. But you can’t be phoning halfway around the world unless you know you’ll be able to afford it – a major concern with most services. With Vonage World®, we give you the ability to enjoy UNLIMITED¹ CALLS TO ALL LANDLINES IN GREECE. For calls to cell phones, there’s a small per-minute charge, but that rate is far lower than almost all the competition. How is all that possible? Through the Vonage Box™,² that’s how. With the Vonage Box you can use Vonage Extensions® to add your plan to an out-of-plan phone, even a cell phone. You get unlimited¹ local and long distance home phone service across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, unlimited voicemail transcripts, Caller ID, Call Waiting, Call Blocking, and 3-way Calling. Plus, Vonage-to-Vonage calls are all free.

And as long as you take the Vonage Box with you, Vonage World and your existing phone number go with you too, anywhere in the world.

Call Greece from the same number, even if you move out of the U.S. You’ll dial the Greece calling code in the same manner as usual. Now you may be asking yourself, if one Vonage Box can do all that, what could two working together do? Glad you asked. The answer is, a lot. In addition to all the great features listed above, if you sign a relative up for a Vonage World account, after they receive the Vonage Box² that we’ll send to them, your relative will be able to make unlimited calls to any cell phones or landlines in the U.S. because they will have the same area code as you. So you can call him or her on your own line or anyone else’s in the U.S. for as long as you like. The opposite also applies – calls from him or her can go to you or anyone else in the U.S. with no limit! Just to drive it home, if both parties have Vonage accounts, the call is free, whether you’re making a call to Greece from the U.S. or vice versa.
