We are debating what to do for phone usage while in Ireland for our honeymoon in 2 weeks. We really only need it to phone the few B&Bs we are staying at and maybe to make a call or 2 home and to a pub or restaurant. We will have a laptop and most B&Bs and hotels we are staying at have wireless internet.
I was searching the forums and came across this:
"If you have Verizon as a carrier, I just found out that they will send you a global phone for free-just need to pay the shipping of $9.99. Then the cost per minute is $1.29. You can only have the phone for 30 days, so if you are going to be there less than 30 days-you should check it out."
Has anyone who is a verizon carrier in the US done this recently? If so what were your experiences? Was coverage/reception good or not? If this doesn't work I'm thinking about purchasing an international calling card but I'm not sure how easy they would be to use (are there pay-phones or would business owners allow me to use their phone if necessary?)
any help would be great! can't wait for this trip!
