Moving from USA to Europe. No service now. Advice?

by fire_water    Oct 19, 2012, 1:40 PM

Hi,

Currently, I do not have a mobile service provider nor a mobile phone number. I do have a mobile phone though, an unlocked quad-band GSM phone. In a few months, I will be moving from the US to Europe. Occasionally I will return to the US to visit.

In the meantime, I am searching for a US mobile service plan. Whichever US plan I choose, I want to keep its phone number when I move to Europe so that I can use it when I return to the US. But I also do not want to pay a lot of money just to keep the US phone number.

So, my questions are:

1.) Which US mobile service plan fits my needs best?

My estimated monthly talk time is 150 minutes. Light data usage is required (directions, web browsing, etc). I would prefer to pay approximately $30 per month. Coverage is required in the Cleveland, Ohio region.

2.) How do I keep my US phone number when I move to Europe?

3.) Should I purchase a local SIM card for the European country I will be moving to?

Thank you
