If she connects to a local WiFi network, she's golden. I understand your
qualms - if cellular, $$.
My daughter used her I-Phone to connect Via WiFi in France. She also
installed Skype and was able to call me dirt cheap. She also calls SE
Asia using Skype from her I-Phone. She uses a paid version of Skype but
the price per call is very affordable.
