  • Best American phone carrier for nomads

    A pro-tip for my fellow Americans out there about to start or already embarked on their Nomad adventures. T-Mobile offers unlimited SMS & data in 120 countries for FREE with any of their (already cheap) plans. Even if you’re out of the country full time I recommend it, but it’s even better if you tend to be back home part of the year as well.

    You do get bumped to slower 3G speeds, but it’s free and works as soon as you land, which is really helpful, to be connected as soon as you land in an unknown country.

    That’s a great suggestion 🙂
    I’ve been using GoogleFi and it has worked for me in Hong Kong and Chiang Mai so far 🙂

      Oh nice. I haven’t heard of Google-Fi before. I’ll check it out.

    I also use Google-Fi and it’s been incredible. Wherever I go, my phone just… Works. And always at a flat fee.

    You also don’t have to be an American to get it.

    Just setup a fake address and then use a VPN to turn it on overseas.

      Wow, another recommendation for Google-Fi. I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of it. Thank you, I’ll check it out.
