    Default International Calling and Data Plans

    Does anyone have a recommendation for the best international talk, text, and data plan for international use at a reasonable price? I am a self-employed internet professional and am considering a road trip through Central and South America and need to be able to work on the road remotely and from anywhere.

    Your feedback will help a lot.

    Roaming internationally with data will be very cost prohibitive

    GSM phones are the best system wise, you'll need an unlocked one, not a US system version

    Normally when i travel I just buy a local sim card for calling - data networks will only be available in the major cities or tourist spots/towns

    Wirless network points are getting pretty common, in most bars arround here in Bogota and coffe shops too.

    If you want true independant connections -everywhere satelite is your only option and again costly depending on use
