Google Voice.

It won't work for you if you have to have an account with Global tho... because of having to provide bills.

20 bucks to have a phone number created and no monthly charge.

I had a phone on my contract with the local number to where she is at, but I canceled it and ported the number over.

look into it.

$25 because I live 1900 miles away!

My fiance dad lives in California, her sister is in Washington and her brother, who has her son, lives in Massachusetts.

Her brother was able to get a local number to where she is on his contract since he lives on the east coast, and that was cheaper than her calling their number.

Her dad and sister both got one of those cheap pre-paid phones and that is still cheaper than her calling them on their personal number. They just used the local post office address to get a number in that area code.

And as I said, even tho I live in Louisiana, I set up an account with Google which dropped the amount for me as well.

So for you cik.... if you talk to him enough, or would rather talk to him some more and you don't have to send in billing information to have an account, I suggust you looking into one of these two options =)

Not just a SIM card.
A whole phone all together.
They work just like a contract phone, except, without a contract. Once you have it set up and have a phone number, you can use them however long you want, as long as you keep minutes on the phone. Different companies work differently so you would have to find out how everything would be set up, but primarily you would be able to get a pre-paid card from a store like Wal-Mart or Target whenever you are low on minutes. Once you are done with the phone, you don't have to do anything to do anything to cancel it.

But like I also said before, If you have to have an account with someone like Global, where you have to mail them your phone bill, this will not work because with a pre-paid phone, you do not receive a bill.
