Multi-Country Calling from Cellular Abroad
Continued from page 3
Recommendation and money-saving tips
Talk Abroad is your best option if:
You're visiting more than one country--for example, on an
escorted tour, a train or car trip, or a cruise around Europe.
You won't be making frequent local calls.
Local people won't call you very often.
You need a single, permanent European phone number abroad
and/or a U.S.-based number where you can be reached by Americans who don't
know how to call overseas.
A single-country SIM card is your best option if:
You're visiting only one country.
You'll be using the phone often for local calls.
Local people will need to call you frequently.
If you travel to Europe reasonably often but don't always visit
the same country, Talk Abroad is likely to be a better value because you can keep
using it instead of buying a new SIM card for each trip. Also, you can recharge
Talk Abroad and keep the same phone number indefinitely wherever you live.
When calling friends, family, or co-workers back home, ask
them to call back from a landline phone or with Skype. That way, you won't
use up your outgoing talk time. (Incoming calls are free.)
Be aware of surcharges. For example, there's a surcharge for outgoing calls to mobile phones,
so you'll save money by calling business colleagues, family, friends, or
business contacts at their landline
