    Cheap calls to/from Europe

    JMP
      My daughter is headed to Paris immediately after her finals next week, and I'm looking for the cheapest way to stay in touch short term. I've added skype to her ipod touch and subscribed to the $3/month call anywhere in the US option. It works great - better reception and more reliable than her cell phone as long as you have wi-fi available. That allows her to call us. For calls to her, is it better to get a skype-in phone number and add voice mail..., or bring a 3-g phone an try to buy a sim card?  Other grad students seem to prefer the sim route. Skype on my very old PC intrudces a noticeable lag into the conversation and I'm concerned about security.
