Wikstrom Long Distance Service: Wikstrom Long Distance adds value to your wiktel telephone. You can choose Wikstrom Long Distance as your long distance carrier for your wiktel phone.  There will be no plan fee or billing statement fee. You only pay for the long distance calls, and you get 30 minutes of state and interstate long distance free.  This will save our customers $3 - $10+ per month. International calls are not included in the free minutes.

No Long Distance Plan Fee
   You pay no calling plan fee.  Our simple and easy calling plan has no fee, no billing statement fee, 30 minutes free calling for state and interstate calls, and 10 cents per minute after the 30 minutes is used.  If you don't use your phone for long distance in any given month, or if you use it for less than 30 minutes total per month, you pay nothing for long distance. Customers who do not have a long distance carrier should pick Wikstrom Long Distance so that they can use their local phone for long distance if necessary.

No Billing Statement Fee
    Some carriers charge a fee for preparing the billing statement.  Wikstrom Long distance does not charge such a fee.
