International Phone Calls
To make international phone calls from Jakarta from ordinary/fixed phones, you can easily dial 001 or 008 before the country code. 001 is operated by Telkom, and 008 by Indosat. There are also other prefix number(s), you can ask your hotel.
If you want to save more money, you can use an international calling card. There are many calling cards with slightly different tariff. Make sure you check the tariff for calls to the specific country before you buy the calling card. Remember to check if the tariff already includes 10% VAT. Some calling card companies include that, and some don't - which probably makes you feel a bit cheated.
If you will use the calling card from a mobile phone, make sure that it supports dialling from mobile phones before you buy it.
Where to buy: Phone cards booths/kiosks in shopping centres.
