I have hotmail but it can't be used abroad because of telephone verification.
I can't use my phone abroad because of international roaming charges. It would make checking email vey expensive. And it doesn't have WiFi. Also places with WiFi expect people to have their own computers with them.
Apart from that the phone I have is not an international phone and is not compatible with some foreign systems (GSM / CDMA incompatibilities).
How can one use email when travelling around.
