The Talk Abroad service imbues the SIM with both a U.S. and U.K. phone number, which helps North American sojourners communicate with contacts at home and abroad. Calls are significantly pricier than more conventional solutions for international dialing, and costs can add up.
While the handset itself is nothing special features-wise, the calling capabilities are handy and reliable. Unfortunately, it doesn't come cheap. Still, the Talk Abroad service will appeal to a specific demographic looking for peace of mind when away from home.
