>From my perspective I travel a lot and want the same phone number at all
times. Roaming charges on the plan are high. I plan to change SIM cards
when I would otherwise be roaming so I am not using roaming rates. I
can't figure out how to get the same phone number except through VoIP. I
haven't done this yet and hope there are no flaws in my logic.
