Phone calls back to the US

We are going to Iceland on a self-drive tour. The tour operator is providing us with a cell phone with a minimum amount on a card. Would we be able to buy another card to provide more data and more time to have the ability to call back to the US. I currently have a locked Iphone 5 and am considering our options for cell phones use. would it be very expensive to use their phone to call back to the US?

Thanks

Are you sure that your phone is locked? The iPhone 5 has a removable nano SIM card of your USA carrier, which you can remove and exchange for an Icelandic nano sim which would give you voice and data. If you have the Skype app on your iPhone, you can easily make calls as well as video calls to the USA with this Icelandic nano sim. If who you are calling also has Skype on their phone or computer, these calls are free. If the party that you are calling does not have Skype, the calls have a low nominal fee. If you prefer to not exchange your nano sim, you can make these calls then whenever you are in wifi with your iPhone.
