As another UK resident, I'll tell you what we did - we bought a pay as you go Tracfone about four years ago and it's been a lifeline to us. Ok, so it's not cheap - it's about $100 to top it up and that credit usually lasts at least a year. My friend's got me so many deals, that I think it's now good until summer 2012! It really has been one of the best things we ever did.
Ok, I know this is a "boring" topic, but I'd like some advice!!!!
Situation: UK family travelling to WDW and wanting to "stay in touch".
Problem: Using a UK cell-phone in the US can be MEGA-expensive, especially if you use "mobile data" to access the internet.
Question: What do you do when you visit WDW?
I've already got a Skype "online" number for Orlando which "diverts" to my cell-phone so Cast Members can call me on a "local" number if necessary (re. package delivery, reservations, etc).
When we go to WDW next we want to take advantage of the Verizon WDW app. which tells you all about line times, etc.
Should I buy a Verizon "pay as you go" cell-phone to use when I'm in WDW? And where can a UK resident get one from? Should I just by a US registered "pay as you go" SIM card to use in my cell-phone?
So many questions I know, but H-E-L-P!!!!!!
If you are looking for ways to stay in touch among your family within the park, have you looked into long range walkie talkies? I know REI has a good one. Not cheap, but then you'd only have to buy it once and it would last forever
