I’m spending some time in Europe (Paris and Tuscany) this summer and trying to figure out the best cell phone approach for me and Amy. We are both iPhone users – me on AT&T and her on Verizon. In both cases, the “use your US iPhone in Europe” seems like a total fail on pricing so we are looking for other options. I’m also a Google Voice user (that’s my main phone number) so I’ve got more flexibility than she does. In both cases, we care about voice, data, and SMS, but don’t have to have an iPhone (e.g. Apps are nice to have but not critical).
Basically, I’m looking for solutions for three different approaches:
1. US iPhone user who uses her cell phone number as her primary phone number.
2. US iPhone user who has Google voice as his primary phone number.
3. US iPhone users who doesn’t care about the primary phone number.
