Q – We leave for a cruise to South America this winter and we’re already looking forward to it – except for the communications part. Is there any way to cut down on the cost of making a call while still using my regular phone (Android)?
A – There is one rather new technique that will save you big bucks. It is called data compression technology and it will save you money on the cost to download data as well as the high roaming charges involved in making overseas calls. The best of these programs is called Onavo Extend. You can download it to your phone for free.
