We have tested the iZi card and it works well. We have found no grounds for complains. We can recommend the iZi card. There sometimes are special prices during sales campaigns. iZi GO To Give is an example of that. These packages only differ, exept for the price 49NLG (42DEM), in one sense, they come with a lower call credit, 40NLG in stead of 90NLG, totally.
