International Phone Service

Currently there aren’t alot of great options. The cost tends to be high or the process highly inconvenient.

My current favorite communication option based on how I travel is:

Skype*.

Other Options Include:

T-Mobile – International Plan

Consider an unlocked phone or a local sim card purchase in an international country. The process is involved but it does bring the best cost.
