Hi, I take my Ipad. It's brilliant whilst away. Must admit never used Facetime or Skype whilst abroad, (but my stepdaughter has in other countries with her iphone) just messaged family on Facebook, emailed work to ask for more time off, LOL, that sort of thing. Wherever you go, just buy a drink and get them to put their password in for the free wifi (never cost me a penny), they are happy to do that. When you've done it once, you won't have to do it again.

Try an free app called "Viber" uses your mobile number as a username to make wifi internet calls to other Viber users. Just make sure your friends and family have the Viber app installed on there phones to.

We use a Blackberry playbook to get in contact with our teenage son.
