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?)
Transit directions and schedules
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?
