http://www.yha.ekit.com/ekit/home - An excellent place to purchase SIM / phone cards for your travels. I've purchased the SIM card as:
- It works in 130 countries (all bar one of the ones I plan to visit)
-Calls are cheap to receive and make
- Texts are sometimes free to receive and cheap to make
- Voice mail is Free
- It's 'Pay as You Go' so no contract
- You keep one number; no changing phone numbers every time you get to another country
