Whether at home or studying abroad, our phones are in our daily lives -- we're constantly on them checking social media, taking selfies, or actually communicating through phone calls and text messages (that's what they're really for, right?).
Of course, things get complicated when you head to Europe to study abroad and suddenly that Verizon signal doesn't have bars anymore. Not to fear -- this guide to cell phone plans for study abroad students in Europe will help you get back on track to your world of telephone technology (but we're hoping you'll use it more to call your new international friends instead!).
These SIMs are pay-by-use, meaning you can put on as much money as you'd like, and each time a text or phone call is made, the rate per minute will be deducted from that amount. If you have a smartphone and need a plan that includes data, this plan will probably be more appealing and have better rates.
In fact, with these plans, you can also allow it to charge your credit card monthly -- and it will be almost exactly like at home with no worries at all! Though most of the world has agreed on the first method of service called GSM (Global System for Mobiles) which relies on a certain frequency to operate, the US and Canada are a bit more confined by mostly using CDMA (or Code Division Multiple Access) on another frequency. Yes, most phones do have plans for abroad, but the roaming fees are ludicrous and you or your parents will not be happy.
Amazon sells a huge variety of affordable, unlocked smartphones, like the Android 4.2 ($78 USD) or the Samsung Galaxy S Duos ($130 USD). A SIM card (Subscriber Identity Module) is the microchip I mentioned earlier that slides into the slot on the side (or sometimes under the battery) of your phone.
It contains the phone number you will use, and, essentially, is the thing that will connect your phone to the network of your choice. All international airports will have a kiosk at the arrivals gate -- meaning, you can pick one up as soon as you land, or purchase SIM cards for use while traveling if you go to another country during your study abroad. When you sign up for a cell phone plan in Europe (usually a pay-as-you-go plan), you'll have the option to just buy a SIM card, or to purchase a SIM card and a phone. Of course, you can simply go with the most popular and what is recommended, but we have found a new-fangled website that may help you out. Before your departure, check your destination through this app to see what carrier has the best signals in where you're going.
Regardless if you have a pre-touch-screen blackberry, a T-9 dinosaur (I swear they aren't that bad), or another iPhone with a Euro SIM card, you'll feel much more comfortable being connected while abroad. Disclaimer: We have paid relationships with some of the companies linked to within this article.
The introduction of the microprocessor, a single chip with all the circuitry that formerly occupied large cabinets, led to the proliferation of personal computers after 1975.
Usually, these services will send you a text message after you have made a call or text telling you how much your balance is after the deduction. The English Vodafone site (which is one of the more popular carriers in Europe, the UK in particular) has a good explanation of how you can top up your credit, but generally it's done in a store, on the web, at an ATM, or through text.
Instead of paying as you go, each month, you have a certain fee that will need to be paid to get a package of a certain amount of internet, minutes, and text messages. For example: In Italy, TIM has a package for those under thirty called TIM Young, which is 9 Euros a month and includes unlimited internet and 1,000 text messages a month.
I would recommend this if you're traveling a lot, because nothing is worse than being out of reach and unable to recharge your phone when needed. Unfortunately, the answer is pretty glum: yes, there are international plans, but they're unreasonably expensive -- especially for long term travel.
This means if your phone doesn't have a little slot on the side where you can put a microchip, you more than likely have a CDMA phone which cannot be used abroad.
Do note, if you have an iPhone, unlocking it will void the warranty -- so this isn't our most suggested option (especially if you're only studying abroad for a summer or semester). Unlocked cell phones are also hugely helpful for post-study abroad travel, since you can use them anywhere you can get a SIM card. If you're looking for a smartphone that's as fast as your normal phone at home, just be willing to pay a bit more.

This little chip is responsible for your phone service and can be purchased once you're in Europe from any mobile phone store. If you already have an unlocked phone, getting that SIM card should only cost you a few Euros.
Though many companies have popped up claiming to be able to take care of your SIM card for you (and have their websites conveniently in English), most are simply middle-men that can get in the way if you're having issues with your phone while abroad. In main city centers, most phone companies are used to working with foreigners and many speak English. Unlike the US, Europe has more than just a few carriers -- and some are specifically for particular countries. And you'll feel great when you can give out those Euro digits to newfound friends - no US country code attached (which, by the way, is +1). For computers generally referred to as PCs, see IBM Personal Computer and IBM PC compatible. When the month is up, all you have to do is go recharge it with 9 Euros, and you will be set. In the States, large companies drive costs up with unnecessary carrier fees and other additional charges, making this a terrible option for study abroad students on a budget.
With the help of individuals downloading the app onto their phone, this is an interactive and community project that helps get everyone the best service. Though this is new territory for most going overseas, it is actually preferable once you get the hang of it (and your parents will be perfectly happy with a much smaller phone bill). Without first reading the introductory overview, it's difficult to understand the later informaiton that is being presented here.
They are shocked to realize that what they had been reading about (and studying photographs of) is also taking place right over their heads.
What some people had dismissed as mere "jet plane exhaust" (because there are now scores of internet propaganda web sites trying to convince you that 'everything is well' and 'there's nothing to be alarmed about' and that unaccountable 'jet plane exhaust'A  plumes are magically being converted into horizon-to-horizon overcasts of "cirrus clouds"A !) are dismayed to realize that chemtrails are indeed the toxin-laden aerosols that have been described here and at other web sites since 1998 and they are not being sprayed for any benign or national security reason as the disinformation peddlers would have you believe. I had taken my 35 mm camera with me to the monthly meeting of the Orange County Chapter of the American Society of Dowsers and after the meeting, I had stopped off at a supermarket.
After getting out of the car, I photographed for the very first time, the strange looking "contrails" that William Thomas had been describing on the Art Bell radio program a couple of weeks earlier.
Thomas had dubbed them "chemtrails" on the Bell show to distinguish them from genuine (and rarely seen) short-lived ice crystal trailings properly identified as contrails. Although I had a number of articles about the NWO and their dark Machiavellian agendas posted at my web site, I was now witnessing (and breathing in) the stark reality of those depopulation plans. A  Chemtrail spraying seems to be heaviest and most constant over North America and most countries ofA  western Europe. Some countries in Asia are being sprayed (Japan and Korea), but the greatest exception to any chemtrail activity whatsover is China. The Chinese are being spared completely because China is being groomed by the NWO to replace the United States as the leading nation of the world, both economically and militarily. If you want to hasten the demise of the chemtrail spraying program, please take the time to read about orgone generators, chembusters, and the use of your mind-with focused intent- to rid the sky of these poisons. People are now reporting the ability to clear the skies of chemtrails by use of the mind alone to obtain assistance from unseen helpers (Sylphs and others) and do the job for you based on your focused intention. I first posted an article in 2002 by Rich Work about using the mind and the the power of prayer to disperse chemtrails, and now we see this ability coming into reality with many people. Read these articles to understand what Sylphs are, what orgone generators are, and the difference between a DOR atmosphere and an OR atmosphere.
We are talking about nothing less than the demise of the chemtrail spraying operations! Chemtrails cannot exist in the presence of these giant air elementals and are they being destroyed as rapidly as they are being sprayed out of spew planes. All of the information posted below is interesting and informative, but it is now HISTORY.

We are winning the battle against chemtrails and defeating the satanic traitors at their own game. Spread the word: DEPLOY ORGONE GENERATORS IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD and you too will be free of chemtrail laden skies! I have seen the evidence here in southern California and have read of similar reports from different regions of America.
Read the articles below for an historical overview of chemtrails and the reasons for their deployment, but don't dwell on the negative aspects of this story because things are beginning to look up and we have good reason for optimism! Get involved with making or obtaining orgone generators in your immediate environment and be part of the 'hit team' bringing down this Luciferian inspired genocide operation. The fourth article describes a metaphysical method to destroy chemtrails that could work better than the physical method if employed by enough people and practiced correctly.
Len Horowitz's latest book (Death in the Air) on the chemtrail spraying program describing its sinister goals, It's a valuable resource to have in your library.
Deploying orgone generators in your immediate environment is an easy, safe, and highly effective way to mitigate chemtrails in your area. However, note that the person who is posting this information does not recognize that many of the photos show Sylphs neutralizing chemtrails, rather than government technology directed at harming the public.
With the exception of the EDB petroleum aerosol rings seen around the sun, the majority of photos which reveal a "rainbow" effect are in fact demonstrating the presence of Sylphs who are transmuting the chemtrails into less harmful substances. Other Sylph photos show a large heart-shaped "hole" in the cloud cover which the web master assumes is government technology, but it is not negative technology. Joe Burton has been aggressively investigating and reporting on this story from early on.
Apparently he had been too aggressive, because his house had been targeted for direct spraying by low flying, unmarked aircraft.A  In a story postedA  Feb.
15, 1999, Joe reports the physical symptoms that his family and his pet have been experiencing from the sprayings.
Joe believes that many of these military tankers responsible for the sprayings are remote controlled aircraft, but Al Cuppet (6 years with the US Joint Chiefs of Staff) has told radio talk show hostA  Jeff Rense during interviews on June 1, 1999, May 16, 1999, and May 7, 1999 felt that many of these tanker planes were more likely being flown by foreign pilots, possibly Chinese or Russian. His reports are titled Contrail Spraying of Cities is RealA  Part 1 , Part II, and Part IIIA  These articles chronicle Ken's apprehension and dismay at the discovery that the United States government was brazenly spraying the skies of southern Texas on April 9, 1999 with Chemtrails. In June, a report from Florida said that sprayings had been going on for weeks over the Ft Lauderdale andA  Jacksonville areas, including military bases.
Some people have gotten very ill and the symptoms seem to keep returning after a short period of improvement. It's possible that some of these sprayings might contain special bioengineered pathogens designed to affect only certain racial groups. In other words, a secondA  substance might be required (aerial spraying or substances added to the water supplyA  for example) to bring out the virulent phase of the pathogen, but of course this is only speculation. Rick Malinowski's long and detailed article also suggest the notion of a 2 or 3 part piggy back element to the chemtrail sprayings. He has been interviewed many times on the Art Bell Radio show to discuss the chemtrails story and has many excellent articles and Photos posted at his own web site as well as other locations including-Jeff Rense's Sightings on the Radio .
Thomas has concluded that these sprayings are genocidal in nature and are intended to reduce or weaken the general population. In a November '99 interview with Art Bell, Thomas also voiced the idea that there might be a mind control element to the most recent spraying, since many people are reporting mental confusion and depression following recent sprayings. Thomas has reminded radio listeners that the government has had a long history of exposing the public to biological pathogens without their knowledge or consent. Most people would like to believe that, but the evidence is too strong in the opposite direction.
