Thank you for contacting Startec Customer Care. Sharael: Thank you. How may I assist you today? Taha: I made phone calls to egypt and the posted rate is 3.9 cents, but i was billed on 12 cents per minute Sharael: Mrs. Mohamed this is the rate with the new plan: Sapphire plus for The Middle East. Sharael: Your current plan is CELLCONNECT ELITE. Taha: So you only post the rate for this plan? Sharael: It is correct. If you want to have this rate, you should change your package. Sharael: 3.9 is the rate for cellphones in Egypt. Taha: But it says on your website “Our Rates From The U.S” without neither mentioning any thing about the plan nor listing this plan in the product list. Sharael: Mme, let me explain you how the new sapphire works. Sharael: For the first 200 minutes you pay a regular rate, after the 200 minutes you receive the discount.
