I need a single phone number that I can use worldwide that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
I'm more than ready to kick my crackberry habit and make the move to Android (probably an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S3). And now that the whole family's phones are out of contract I want to kick the t-mobile habit as well and change to a no-contract MVNO
The problem is none of the GSM MVNO's offer international roaming plans (phone), let along unlimited international data (which I can get for $20/month from t-mobile). I'm prepared to buy a local SIM card for each of the countries I typically visit. But I can't keep changing phone numbers. I need a single (USA) number that I can setup to forward to whatever international number comes with the local SIM card. Google voice would be probably perfect but it won't forward to an international number.
So what solutions are there?
- Single USA phone number
- At low cost reaches an Android phone worldwide
- Caller ID is always the USA number
- Able to send/receive texts
- Unlimited or at least 1GB international data
- Preferably without any contract
- Use of local SIM cards is fine.
