“So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence.” – Bertrand Russell
As world travelers, we frequently change cell phone numbers. Each new country has one or two new numbers. There are cell phones now that have two numbers – they actually have two SIM cards in each phone.
This raises some questions:
1. How do we remember these new cell phone numbers?
2. Why should we be bothered with remembering a cell phone number; it is just a waste of good brain bandwidth.
3. How do we keep youngsters from thinking we are stupid, just because we have no priority to remember a cell phone number?
This is fun, in a way. It would be enjoyable to give this problem to a bunch of techies to see which one comes up with a simple solution and which one just makes life more complicated.
The best cell-phone-number solution is simple and easy. Often, we say to ourselves, “that was too simple!” as if we already knew it.
Generally, as a rule of thumb, if you want life confused and complicated, hand the problem over the IT department to look for a techie, computer solution.

I am not sure if you know, you can use the exact same cellular phone in the US as well as overseas I do that myself, I bought an iPhone 3GS, just make sure this iPhone is FACTORY UNLOCKED. These kind of phones come with a SIM card, and work overseas just as they call them world phones. Here in the US, I use mine with a T-Mobile card, and I like the pay as go way, thus, I am not expecting ANY monthly charges, I just refill when I know I am getting low in minutes. When traveling in Guatemala I just remove my other SIM card and pop a Tigo one in the exact same phone, easy-peacy.
You just need to check if you have a quad band phone in the US we use 850 MHz, 1900 MHz - most of the rest of the world uses 800 and 1800MHz- I have one i bought in the Philippines for 22 dollars with two sims and is a quad band - a number of usa cellphone companies have gsm sims like the rest of the world including Atandt,T-mobile and net10 Verizon uses the system without sim cards called CDMA.
