    Look at those international sim cards... if not then Skype maybe or any other VoIP and failing that. Well no is the answer.

    Skype I would imagine. Perhaps there are cheaper alternatives.

    Skype looks like 2.3 cents a minute, however Google Voice can get you 2 cents a minute (note I believe those are the same rates as calling inside gmail). So you could save .3 cents a minute

    buy a calling card. They have these at every country and most convient store.

    *Source*: Being chinese... and my parents use it all the time. And yes they can call you (your real number) with a calling card too.
