Best way to call U.S. from SE Asia?

Will not be taking a cell phone. What is the best/cheapest/easiest way to call back to US? I'm hoping someone knows of a pre-paid phone card I can purchase before I leave, use in all countries, and possibly use any remainder once I'm home.

In Phnom Penh most people use an internet cafe and speak through the computer. the only drawback is a delay which usually the other person doesnt understand and you wind up talking over each other. very cheap.

in thailand you can buy a sim card for your cell phone and call directly at a resonable cost. this is still expensive from cambodia but companies are trying to bring this cost down.
