So I was shopping at Walamrt today. I asked her is they sell international phone cards. She said that they may have some but they are few and far between. She went looking. She found a few. I asked her if I could use it with a cell phone. She wasn't sure. I told her that my hubby is deployed in Afganistan(sp) and that I needed it. She told me that it would work for him to call me. Well than I told her that it was for me to call him.

That it when it all started. She told me I can't call. Stupid idiot I just did.  I asked what she was talking about. She said the phone cards are for him to me. She told me that he shouldn't even have his phone. I am 22 a new mom I need away to talk to my husband. SHe said her husband is in the army that how she knows.


:Military wives....do you all call your hubby's??

I didn't call him, because he didn't have a phone there. But I knew wives who did. We skyped more than anything. It was easier and free.

As far as I know, as long as he has a working phone and there is no communications ban, you should be able to call. He would be able to answer you since every deployment and area is different.

She said her husband was not allowed a phone. Maybe My husband's unit is just better.

It all depends on his branch, his location, and whether its against regulations or not. I would guess that since you've already done so and your dh hasn't stated otherwise, it isn't a problem for you to call him.

Nope I didn't call him. I always waited for him to call me on the phone or through Skype.

My brother is in Afghanistan right now and we can't call him. He can only call us once a week, usually. He is allowed to use skype and facebook while he's at the base.

If her husband isnt allowed to have a phone, she might not realize that some soldiers are allowed. That doesnt make her stupid, it only means that she shared the only information she may have. Your being here asking doesnt make you stupid, it means you only had one half of the information as well.
