Answers to the "what technology for mobile international traveler lifestyle?" questions

Some great questions from a friend of mine striking off internationally / mobile.

Also, you had some tips for this lifestyle. What are they? My biggest questions are:

1) Receiving phone calls. I imagine there are good (even free) Voice Over IP services that will allow me to

Take my old local calls and transfer them to the Internet; Forward the calls to whatever local number I'm using in whatever country I happen to be; Transfer voice mail and SMS messages to e-mail.

1. Google Voice is good for getting a USA number ported. I don't know about Europe... maybe you can port it to SkypeIn (a nice product), or maybe to Grasshopper if they're working in Europe. Get Google Voice though definitely, it's free and good and does what you want.
