I have always avoided a different SIM card or picking up a cheap phone when travelling, assuming that it gives you a different phone number which would be a royal pain if nobody knew what number to call. I would be having to constantly check phone and SMS to see.

Seriously, since our Telus services work south exactly as they do in Canada, for us this is the best scenario. Text, calls and data all working and costing the same when travelling.

Hi: Jim Bennett... Buying a cheap phone has its pitfalls. What if a "Business" lady owned the number before you? You'd get some interesting calls!!!

Alf, are you thinking of a way of funding retirement?

I was able to keep my number. Google Fi is new. I used it in Japan and got amazing service and $20/month is a steal. $10/gig data, up to 6 gig then data is free!!! Most you will pay is $80/month if you stream amd use 6 gigs of data.
