A friend has loaned me her old, unlocked iPhone 4s and a microSim card she bought in late August (good for a year). She wiped all her stuff off and I'm currently syncing with my iTunes for contacts etc.
I will be wanting the ability to call the following:
-my daughter's cell phones (both CA numbers) one in CA and one in MN
-my sister's VA cell number in France (unless she gets a burner)
-places of business in France
-possibly some numbers in Scotland
I also have my own Verizon iPhone 4s and I've purchased the global calling and data plan, but phone calls are still $1/min so I'm seeking cheaper options. I do have Skype on my iPhone, so I can do some phone calls that way, but I'm guessing I only want to do that where I have a good wifi signal. I think it's a few cents/minute but I believe there's a connection charge per call, too.
I'm looking for recommendations on carriers and plans and logistically what I do (go to a phone store, go online, go to the equivalent of a verizon store?)
Thanks so much,
Los Altos, CA
