Hi, we'll soon be travelling to the UK and 9 European countries.  Is anyone able to recommend a good way to get connected for mobile and data?  I've got a Samsung Galaxy S I9000 phone which I know will work in the coutries we are visiting.

I'm looking for a way to get a good data plan but obviously don't want to sign up for a monthly account since we'll only be away 4 weeks.

I've read about GoSIM which seems like an option, however anyone calling the SIM calls a Estonian number.

What have others done?

Thanks

Pick up a Local Prepay sim card in the countries you are in while you're there. It will save you BIG time on any roaming bills lead by using the NZ telcos

Data will still be steep no matter what roaming option you use. My recommendation would be to sign up for something like Boingo or Boingo mobile if you only want access from mobile devices, and use WiFi for data.
