Have Phone, Will Travel


There is one new development regarding cellphones worth mentioning and that is the availability of “world phones,” specifically intended for world travel, an option worth considering, especially for Americans, maybe even Europeans and others, particularly for those who need several different numbers for several different places.  As mentioned before, most Americans don’t have GSM phones, which is the world digital standard, and roaming’s not cheap with ATT and T-Mobile, even if you do.  Now you can buy a British SIM card and/or phone and travel the world with a +44 number, and not only pay for the service in US dollars, but pay no monthly fees at all.
