Then I would suggest getting an international data plan while traveling so that you can email, text, etc. on the Tour or the 8830, and getting a local SIM card that you use for calls. Then have your spouse get a calling card with the discounted international rates so that $20 buys a huge amount of minutes, and have her call your UK, or France, or whereever phone number.

- Many people would simply carry a cheap international phone from the country they are in to avoid the headache of swapping SIM cards in the BB.

- Otherwise, consider a netbook equipped with Skype and use that model for the wi-fi spots.

For myself, I just pay the freight because I need to have clients get in touch with me.
