Default International calling deal for AT&T

A friend of mine's daughter will be traveling around the world for 6 months with a youth mission group and we are trying to find the best way for her to get an international calling plan or cards. Does anyone have any ideas?

It depends on the country or countries. In many parts of the world, they use GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) signal for cell phone while the US does not. Cell phone sold here in the USA may or may not be usable at other country. Check the destination country first to see what type of signal or how many Hz they use.

It's a safe bet for your friend's daughter to buy a phone and calling plan at the foreign country she's staying. It's usually cheaper and you know for sure that the phone will work. If your friend do decide to buy, make sure she buys the right phone (the signal we talked about) and one that is unlocked, meaning it can work with SIM card from any phone company. I have friends who bought GSM unlocked phone here, go overseas and buy new SIM cards there. But it all depends on the country. Hope it helps.

P.S.: I didn't realize this thread was posted back in April...

Thanks for the info, but she left on the 1st. She was able to purchase an iPhone and she will be able to buy cards in the countries she will visit. They are going to 6 different countries as part of a youth ministry. She will be able to use Skype is some places as well.
