I am going to be spending three weeks in France, Switzerland and Italy and want data and phone service on my Samsung Galaxy 5 (I have Verizon coverage).
Halfway through the trip I'll be meeting up with two friends in Italy at different times but eventually we'll all be tavelling together. We all want to be connected via phone so we can have some independence. I think we all have different domestic carriers and phones. If we each have global plans but try to call or text each other while over there will that end up being an international call back to the USA each time? Is each getting a Sim card the way to go? What is the best way to stay connected via phone within the country?
I know this is answered elsewhere but what are the best cards for Italy out there?
