US Cell phone usage in Norway, Denmark, Belgium and Luxembourg

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will soon spend several weeks in Europe, visiting the countries of Norway, Denmark, Belgium and Luxembourg. I am trying to find a quality and yet, economical method to maintain contact with my teenagers back in the US. I have planned my hotels and such to ensure I have web access for video chat on late evenings but figure I still need for them to reach me by phone or text.

I have read over many of the other forum posts regarding cell phones, but many of them seem to address situations where folks are visiting one country and thus, buying a Simm for that country. I am looking for a multi-country option. I have a quad band phone thru AT&T that I will seek to have unlocked. On our normal cell plan, we have free long distance included in the monthly plan and thus, use that for our long distance instead of our house phone. I know that I can get a world plan from ATT but it is not cheap for the volume of calls I suspect we might have with our kids on the trip.

I have read your comments regarding Call in Europe and some other options but I was also intrigued when in one post, XYZ mentioned Localphone where I would be provided with a US phone number. I tried to find out more about this on their website but other than a fluff comment, did not really lay out the details. Has anyone actually used this service? It is my hope that if everything can pass thru the assigned USA number then my kids remaining in the US, can still use the free long distance on their cell phones to call me at no cost (on their end) in Europe.

I would appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.

Thank you in advance.
