I'm going to be doing a lot of international travel in the next few months.

Pano Tip

I'd love your input on this. I'm going to be doing a lot of international travel in the next few months. I want to avoid paying expensive roaming charges and am leaning toward getting a local SIM card. The two main problems with this setup are, 1) no one will know my new number unless I tell them, and 2) I've heard it's expensive to call to and from the US. I've been told to look at MagicJack, Vonage, Ooma (and I guess alternatively, Skype, Skype, WhatsApp, Viber, or other VoIP apps may help). What app/solution are you using? Thanks in advance for your feedback!

I use WhatsApp and Skype. I also temporarily add the international calling option onto my ATT account (something like $5/month?) and prepay for a bucket of minutes so I can take my phone with me without any changes and use it sparingly but knowing that I have it. I take the international calling option off when I get home.

I use WhatsApp and Skype for my European clients. And.... as much as I have call quality issues with T-Mobile, they have great international service
