.07 cents per CALL or MINUTE?
31 x .07 = $2.17 + $5.00 = $7.17
Take a look at OneSuite - .025 cents per minute and no monthly charge last I checked a few months back.
I also had our local telephone provider, Verizon, remove all Inter-state and Intra-state long distance carriers from our line. My wife would call a number in the same area code as ours a few towns over and we'd get billed at .17 or .25 cents per minute. This way, she tried it first. If she got a recorded message saying this number is a long distance call, she'd redial with the OneSuite prefix. Cut our long distance bill tremendously!
