Help us strategize our phone situation in Europe!

Two American couples, in Europe for about a month, wondering how to optimize our cell phone coverage for the trip. What should we do in general, calling and datawise? And what is the best way for at least one person from each couple to have the best wikipedia/yelp/etc. access while we're out and about during the trip? [more inside]

Please help me overhaul my international cellphone setup

I live in the US, but I spend quite a bit of time in the UK. Please help me overhaul my (currently ridiculous) cellphone arrangement, so that I can make calls cheaply, and be called by other people cheaply for them, in/from/to both places, preferably with email access too. [more inside]

temporary phone for india/china

temporary phones (gsm 900/1800 or quad band) for use in both china and india. should i buy them stateside with a US plan (att, verizon, etc - which one would you recommend?) and enable roaming (which would be convenient but expensive?), or do i buy sim cards (cheaper) in the respective countries? would prefer convenience and to not have to buy the phones outright. what worked well for you as a temporary phone? thanks for any tips!

Recommend good deals on disposable phones in the UK & France.

European disposable mobile phones: My parents, who are American, are going to Edinburgh, London & Paris later this week. They've asked me what I know about disposable/rentable phones since their phones won't work over there. I know nothing. So now I'm asking all of you: What do you know about good deals on disposable/rentable phones in the UK & France? (I believe they're looking to use the phones for a period of 7-10 days, and if it makes things simpler I think they are willing to do without during the French portion of the trip if necessary)
