I thought I’d throw a travel question open to readers of the blog. During the upcoming month on the road Marianne and I will need to keep in touch as best we can. I also want to be easily contactable for people in the US, especially when I’m in LA for WorldCon. The best option seems to be to get mobile phones for both Marianne and I. Marianne has an old junker phone here, and I don’t use one at all. I’m thinking about getting a couple cheap mobile phones here, taking them along to the US and getting new SIM cards once we’re there. The other option would simply be to wait until we got there and then buy two cheap phones. Not sure about the best course of action, but I’d love some recommendations.
