I am studying in the Netherlands this fall and will be away for 4 months and was hoping to gain some insight on how to stay in contact via telephone while I am away. I will only need to call the US, specifically KS and NE. Are calling cards the best way to go and if so which ones offer the best plans? Or is it easier to use a cell phone? I am so frustrated on what to do; any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
