  • Collect call from Indonesia - How?

    I need to make phone call to USA to several banks since I losted my wallet. My banks gave me phone numbers that I can use for collect call.
    Does anyone know how to make a collect call from Indonesia. I am currently using telkom and XL provider?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Call the Indonesian operator and ask them to contact you with a US operator and tell her you are making a collect call, no problem............

        except most people have pre paid plans, and thus the call cuts out after about 5 minutes to an overseas number....(due to high call costs)

        I find that it is difficult to ring call collect from a mobile, if you are home use the home phone.,..

          Awesome..

          Thanks guys for your help.
          Now, I just need to figure it out how to make a collect call to HSBC fraud department in United states from my cellphone (XL provider) on Monday from HSBC world trade centre Jakarta. I not sure if they going to use their phone instead but I doubt it since it long distance. Apparently I have to bring my passport (so on) and report to nearest HSBC and make a phone call from there to USA and that way I can get an emergency cash.

          And yes..kingwilly....I do need to make a phone call from my cell on monday. I guess I have to call them directly since I dont know how to make collect call from cellphone.

          Hmmm..this is not pretty at all.

          Once again...thanks a million

            I dont know if the US has this sort of thing, but I know in the UK you can pay a small fee to a company which keeps a record of all your cards, so you only have to make one call to have everything canceled/;frozen in this sort of event, might be worth investigating....

                  Bit late after the event though.
                  Quite true, I was referring for next time (though presumably nobody would ever want a next time)

                  and for others to consider...
