    First of all, i want to say that i know very little about cell phones, so please try not to get to technical on me. I live in the US, and my girlfriend is going to France to study next semester, i am in college, so i need to figure out the least expensive way i can talk to her. I am pretty sure she is getting an international cell phone, but i just have my regular US cell phone. I will also have my regular land line.
    I am a little confused by all the options even after looking through different sites and the forums. I seem to think that some sort of prepaid minute plan would be best, but i have no experience with these. I would ideally like to get a similar package for my gf as sort of a going away present, but again, i have never done this before, so i don't know exactly what is required on both ends. It seems that most of the information is geared towards people trying to make calls from a foreign country to the US or recieving calls from the US, not making cell phone calls to a foreign country.
    If anyone has any advice on some solutions, i would really appreciate it. thanks for your time and help

    I'm sure both your current providers have international calling plans. What are they?

    It is better not to bother with your US provider. Ask her to buy her phone and SIM from a French provider, after asking around as to what the best value is. Probably pre-paid is the best to start. Then just phone her from your ordinary phone, and let her phone you. There is no charge to recieve calls in Europe, only to call out. I hope this helps.
