Calls can be made using a phone card you can insert in public telephones or by mobile phone. There are special price plans for different countries.
In Portugal there are several mobile operators such as Vodafone, Optimus, Meo, Zon, Cabovisão. You can easily find one of these in shops inside the shopping centres. You can buy pre or post paid phone cards for your mobile phone or buy a mobile phone with one of those cards. You should look carefully at the price plans offered by each shop to see which is best for your communication needs.
These operators offer also internet and TV services in case you need to acquire these services on your own (for instance if you live outside a university residence or if these services are not provided in the residence).
