As I wrote about in February, I got a Verizon iPhone the day it came out. I personally had horrendous service with AT&T and I haven’t regretted my decision at all.
However, it has been a huge adjustment for me when traveling internationally since my Verizon iPhone doesn’t work and I haven’t gotten around to jailbreaking it so I can use international SIM cards. Instead, I’ve been taking advantage of the Skype application which has saved me tons of money on international calls.
Once hooked up to a solid wifi connection, all you have to do is load up the app and dial away. When I was in Stockholm last week a 3 minute call to a US cell phone number cost me a whopping 14 cents. The same call would have been at least $4.19 with AT&T.
The app is free and you can load money instantly, so in my opinion it’s a no brainer for the international traveler.
