Re: OT: Out of country call forwarding
Another option is for her to bring her (carrier-unlocked) phone along to Australia and buy a new SIM card there with the package of calling/texting/data that she needs. This is what I've done before when traveling abroad, usually for shorter time periods but most prepaid packages are good for a month or more anyway.
Hope that helps!

Subject: [elug] Out of country call forwarding
My sister-in-law is heading to Australia for a month. She would like some kind of inexpensive way to still send/receive a few phone calls and texts. Right now Telus wants to sell her an $85 package for 75 minutes.
One option I thought of included call forward from her telus number to a local carrier where she would purchase a SIM card for her iPhone . Another option I thought of included a local Skype number where she would have calls forwarded to .
Does anyone have any thoughts or recommendations for an out of country calling solution?
