Looks like I forgot to mention that I couldn't just take my cell to the beach and call hone for $.023/min I had to be in the room and my I-phone had to be connected to the wireless router then sign into Skype through the APP.
I sure hope I didn't make it sound like there was an easier way. If you need to have instant contact with home and for them to call you anytime, then renting the cell phone is the way to go.
Make some time to lose track of.
