What About Skype ? - I phone update ?

Jump to last reply

I hope to be in Turkey the first of May. I will be in hotels with WiFi. Clearly, no one has a crystal ball, but I wonder if anyone has an educated guess, especially given the governmental shut down of social media sites.

* I would like to be able to SKYPE back to the US, to France and to Uruguay with my Tablet. Is it likely that this will be possible ? Or should I get a VPN service ? Or is there a better idea ?

* I have reviewed older posts on the use of I Phones in Turkey (especially in Istanbul) but I would appreciate an update as to your recommendations for using an I Phone, especially for local calls and for maps downloaded onto the phone with the hotel WiFi. I usually travel with an older, open phone and buy sim cards. Would that be a better alternative - along with those old fashioned (I still love them) paper maps ?

I appreciate any guidance.
