Re: [Equipment] Any IP phone smaller than a Cisco SPA 301?

I recommend getting a used older smartphone; many are less than $100. I couldn't imagine traveling without one:

Maps (ever wrestle with a paper map in wind/rain?)
Translation
Transit directions and schedules
Restaurant reviews
Learning about sights you are visiting and what is worth visiting
Skype (works in many situations where SIP is blocked)

She needs a cellphone for safety anyhow. With a local SIM, she can make and receive calls at reasonable cost, when VoIP is unavailable. If her present phone is locked to a carrier, this will save the hassle of getting it unlocked.

What countries will she be visiting? Staying how long? In a hotel or with friends? Will she be taking a laptop or tablet?
