then get yourself an israeli plan - they come without contract and put ur line with ur sprint number on hold for the year - small fee every month

That never made sense to me as how would your carrier know if you opened a SMS or not.

The txt message will cost you regardless if you open it or not.

@real-brisker Are you going to brisk? They let phones with internet?  ;)
Maybe you could get a talk n save phone with an American #, and set up fwding from ur sprint phone to ur talk n save one

You can fwd for free to a US# with  GV

How will he then receive it on his cell phone is Israel (if he doesn't have internet)? Maybe port his cell # to google voice, and that will be his google voice #, this deff will make all fowarding options easier

I was just adding to your Idea of getting an Israeli cellphone with an american # and fwding his calls to that number. Using sprint to fwd your calls is very expensive so I was just advising using GV instead.

Using your phone in israel will cost you a heap! when i was in Israel i used gv (and on sprint u can set ur current number for ur gv) and combined it with rebtel. rented israeli sim from talk n save. I know its not what you want but i dont see any way to just roam and not pay

Can you give me a bit more information on "talk n save"? What does it cost, and what it includes.

let me put it this way, it's "talk-n-pay"! (http://www.talknsave.net/) i would suggest trying to get a an israeli plan which doesnt have a contract and adding a service like 012 to get an american number for a fee per month.

get a blackberry from orange and they can give you a data  plan for 100 shekel a month. Add 013 for international calling. That would be your best option. The free international roaming just doesnt exist!

to get better internet get and internt card @ 100 shekel a month and plug it into ur laptop. it would also work on oranges 3G

(BTW this is befor the phone, and sim charges. If you want them waived send me a PM)

I'm paying pelephone 38 shekel for 1GB & 200 min to 5 numbers. 100 shekel is a ripoff.

Up to you. Just why would a brisker need a not kosher phone?

every now and then companys come out with sales for a few days. I learned in Israel also, I know the ropes.

1)You cant always get your plan
2)The BB is unlimited data, it seems like the brisker does it right.
3)Is yours BB service or just reg internet?
