Does anyone have advice on the cheapest and easiest way to use a phone in Europe and North America. 2 yrs ago we found it hard to do and ended up using the iPhone for texting and Skype where connection was available. Also emails. We had purchased a phone before leaving Australia but found it difficult to connect. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
If one of you guys has a smartphone, try Global Call. Im currently living in Australia and my family and friends are in Vietnam. Many of them do not own smartphones so i make calls thru this app. It's much cheaper than Skype and it provides at a fixed rate and it defers depending on the country you make a call to and whether it is to landline or mobile. I dont know what country you wanna call to from europe and north america.. so download the app and you can check out the rates. over 4 years ago
