I have spent the last weekend in Lisbon Portugal after an invite from @sammachin to attend TADHack at the Institute of Superior Technology.
During the hackday I built a little hack to help me stay connected while traveling without breaking the bank using Truphone, Twilio and local data sims.
The hack even won a $1000 prize from Truphone.
It works like this:
This means I have a lot more control over my roaming costs and can decide how to take / make calls.
I am just tidying up the code and will post it on GitHub soon.
I have the rest of the week in Lisbon to rest-up and get ready to head to Asia.
