Bell has a 30 day pass data plan which is $35 for 5GB of data. This is $0.007/MB. Very good value. Use a SIP talk and SMS. I use Anveo, it gives you Canadian numbers that can receive SMS -- you will get them in email. And can send SMS via email, too. Wind Mobile will give you an unlimited data/text/talk plan for $35 (for more details consult the quick ...

For 15 EU unlimited data for 30 days in Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Norway, Republic of Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland, and as a plus the USA. I'm leaving for Europe again Sunday and haven't actually tried it, but its ...

You can say that you have at least GSM nearly all over the island. We had GSM access even on Askja. The tariffs are very flexible compared to other European countries (especially Germany). They provide modular packages for internet/phone traffic. Staff in the mobile shop (Simmin) where very anxious to help us (in fluent english)! They provide an app to ...

VOIP phones, like Vonage, can be used wherever you have cable access to the internet. I take my office with me wherever I go around the world. Calls reach me immediately. I can call anywherein the States as if I were home.

I had a look at your StackOverflow profile and it says you are from New York. You have two methods of doing this. European countries all have different mobile networks and phone number systems. So you would most likely have to get a sim in each country but that isn't really economic and is a major hassle. Method 1: Google Voice Get a Google Voice number ...

When it comes to internet, data sim in Prague, Czech Republic, Vodafone has currently the fastest 3G and 4G in Czech (measured independently by DSL). I recommend to visit the store at the airport at the time of your arrival. They all speak English, and they will find just the right solution for you. Vodafone also has a dedicated website with special plans ...

You mentioned "send a text message to have someone be able to follow me". Basic iPhone Message has a new feature to send your location, but not to set up a tracking relationship. You might be interested in our app Group Tracker ⊚. Currently available on iPhone, undergoing a significant revision for iOS 8, with version 1.3 to be released shortly. It's ...

I have a Piranha Mobile SIM. The coverage is as good as it gets since it uses local networks, activation was easy, expect quite a few phone reboots, using it is very easy... The situation it solves and it solves very well is the following: you arrive to an airport. You need transportation to your accomodation and it's arranged but there's some problem. Maybe ...

Yes, there's an app exactly for what you're looking for, and it's called Glympse. You can choose to share your location, set a timer on how long that location will be shared, and send the details (it's just a link) to any of your contacts via text message, Twitter, email, a bunch of other messaging apps etc. What I like about this is that you can limit ...

Yes, Google Latitude! Ok, last year they merged it with google+, so now it's just under locations in that app, but it allows you to share your GPS location with other contacts or friends, on a pinpoint or city-wide location. It used to look like this: source But now, while still similar, is in Google+, and you can activate it as per the following ...

After reading the comments, I thought I'd summarize what was said as an alternative to Mark Mayo's solution. It seems that there is no solution that really stands out at time of writing and it all depends where you come from. Outside of Europe If you come from outside of Europe, it seems like Mark's solution would probably suit you best, as you can prepare ...

Sort of. Every one sort of has roaming though, or per meg data charges. It's still got to be based somewhere. The closest I've heard of is Go Sim which has a 'Europe Sim' for this use case. Includes: a Europe SIM Card with $10 airtime We've got the SIM for you! Our all-in-one replug sim will work in any unlocked mobile device (including ...

It should be a reply to OPs question in the comments but I don't have 50 reputation yet. If moderators can merge it somehow, please, feel free. Abonament is a long-term contract. Karta is pay-as-you-go. It is pre-paid and you charge it by buying and redeeming codes (e.g. in convenience stores and newsstands). Mix is, well, a mix of two. You pay as you go, ...

The easiest way is indeed to come to Japan with a SIM-free device and getting a data SIM. The best deal I found when visiting for 3 months back in March '14 was ordering an OCN SIM from Amazon JP (http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B00EQ12AYS - had same-day shipping option and an additional discount when I was there). I got mine shipped to my hotel. Once you get ...

First of all, Chili (MTML network) does not seem to have any "fast" mobile internet offer. Its website mentions GPRS or EDGE as technologies, some kind of receivers having a speed of up to 3Mbps. It seems confirmed by its absence from the list of LTE networks. Regarding the two other networks, Orange/Mauritius Telecom and Emtel, they both have started ...
