I've researched the archived topics but need a bit of clarification on calling home to the States. Best to buy international calling card and take with you, buy card at resort if available, and do they have pay phones to use these cards, or simply use FaceTime on I-pad? I can use FaceTime with my sons but I need to call at least once to check on my elderly Mother who lives alone. This has never felt like a problem on other islands...I'm with Verizon and they don't seem to have a calling plan for the DR and they said I should simply leave phone at home so I will not get charged if someone texts or calls. Only need to call for a few minutes to check in....what IS the simpliest way to do this?
Thanks in advance.
