I am not that techy of a person especially when it comes to phones. As a matter of fact my husband and I just got our I-phones 2 years ago only because we changed companies and they were free. In any case-we have traveled extensively without any type of phone and have relied on using the internet to book rooms, correspond, etc. This time we will be there for 3 months and both he and I will need to have a phone for minimal usage-calling a place where we have reservations, etc. We would not need a data plan as we will use free wifi when we can and book places that offer it. I saw on a forum that the G3 wireless was a good network from the most recent post on this forum but wanted more feedback. We will be traveling to the UK, Ireland, Belgium, France, Poland, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Germany, and the Czech Republic. As I said this would only be for limited use in case we absolutely have to call someone in that country. Would you all recommend this company? It looks like it is pretty simple: get phone unlocked ( no idea where to get that done state side ) Buy their sim card, activate it when we arrive, it will give us texts, calls, and data in those countries ( even though we wouldn't need data ). Another question: this is my primary phone, not a back up. If I unlock it will there be any problems when I return to the US? Do I have to re-lock it??? OR should I just get a pre-paid phone when I arrive. I am just looking for something easy and that will not cost too much.
Also.....Vonage-I have the app on my phone and should be able to call out for free to the US as long as I have wifi???? Sounds too good to be true. Just wanted to clarify with others.
