Buying a phone card in port is probably the least expensive way to "call home". If you decide to take that route, the way to take full advantage of the advertised "minutes" is to make the connection and keep talking until it runs dry. Calling cards typically have a "hidden" charge (called a bong charge) every time you make a connection and can range from 50 cents to a dollar+.
