One of the more annoying hassles of international travel is the fact that it turns your phone from a mobile communication device to a shiny hunk of plastic and metal. For the longest time you needed a separate phone (or SIM card) that you'd have to switch between in order to make calls while overseas. It's an expensive hassle and one we might not have to deal with ever again, thanks to Telestial.

Telestial is an international communication company that provides budget calling solutions to world travelers. They've just launched a new prepaid program that comes with a dual-number SIM card. Customers who buy the dual-number Passport Roaming SIM will be given both U.S and U.K cell numbers. Both numbers will be international, and paid for under the same plan. Telestial claims that the new card will allow customers to use their cell phones in over 130 countries.

Price-wise, this looks to be a bargain. Outgoing calls are just $0.49 a minute (pretty good considering AT&T's standard is $1.29/min for international calls while in Europe), and $.19 a minute for incoming calls. Compared to a decent stateside plan, Telestial's service is pretty pricey. But compared to the normal cost of calling overseas it's a fantastic deal. If you're the kind of person who spends an extended amount of time out of country, this might be worth looking into.
