I already read the thread about Whats App and Skype. I still need a solution to my issue. I want to call my mother when I am in Ireland next week and prefer to use WIFI. Mom does not have a Smart Phone. She has a landline and regular "flip" type (i.e. Jitterbug type) cell phone. She also refuses to use a tablet or computer. I have a cheap Android phone that will NOT WORK in Ireland for phone calls but it does connect to WIFI. If I can get a WIFI connection on my Android, what is the best way to make a call to my Mom without having her have to do anything except answer her phone?
BTW...I do have a UK Mobile phone I bring with me when I travel to Europe but it is still pretty expensive to make calls. It is a Mobal phone. Not a smart phone. Just a basic cell that I use to make restaurant reservations or call a hotel if I have questions. I can use it to call the USA but it is very expensive.
Also...I purchased a small power strip with USA type AC connections with one USA type AC connection to use when plugging into one source. If I plug the strip into an Adapter suitable for use in the UK/Ireland and then plug that adapter into the wall at some hotel, will this be a problem? I do not want to start a fire or blow out my devices. The devices I plan to charge are 1) Android Tablet, 2) I-Touch, 3) Android Phone, 4) My friend's Android Phone.
Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
