Globetrotter, Globetalker


What It Is: Love to travel? Afraid of roaming fees? Meet VoxEra. This amazing little gadget lets you call or text your loved ones no matter where you are in the world, with only a wifi connection. More importantly, it lets you do this without tapping into your phone’s precious (and pricey) international minutes. That’s right, no roaming fees. Just insert your phone’s SIM card into VoxEra, connect to the VoxEra app on your phone once you’re in a wifi hotspot, and presto, you’ll be able to call home, text your besties, and stay in touch no matter where the world may take you.

Who It’s For: Your globetrotting friend, to always stay in touch. Your long-distance lover, to keep those fires burning. Your son or daughter that’s taking a gap year, to give them an excuse to call home.

What It Costs: You can nab it right now for as little as $99 USD, including a lifetime subscription to the VoxEra service. Fair warning there were only a few of those left at the time of writing this!

Where It’s At: Nab it now at reduced prices (it will retail for $180 USD + subscription costs in the future) on Kickstarter.

    I think this is a great idea, not exactly sure how it works, even after reading the Kickstarter page and I do love Kickstarters.

  2. For me but not sure what is advantage over using free wifi on

  3. aketch says:

    My friend Dorothy would like this!

  4. Kim K says:

    I know a lot of travellers but with iPhones we stay connected through the iMessage system these days.

  5. Heather Swanson says:

    Very interesting my family could use this

  6. katydidit21 says:

    This is a great idea. My son will be travelling in South America in the fall.

  7. This would be great, we have a problem when travelling. We wou,d love one

  8. intensev5 says:

    This would be so great for travelling. We are always wanting to keep in touch with family at home.

  9. Donnas says:

    We stay in touch through Facebook; most resorts have free Wi-Fi and we message that way. I don’t think I’d use it.

  10. Lindsey says:

    Not for me. I’d stick with Skype and email.

  11. Joan G. says:

    Not something I need, Magic Jack, Skype, Facebook already provide me with what I need.

  12. Judy says:

    This sounds like a great idea, not sure how it works or how well. We would certainly use somthing like this.

  13. Alyssa says:

    Nice product. My sister would love this

  14. Giselle says:

    This would have been perfect when my sister was living in China! It is an excellent idea!

  15. Susan says:

    I think this is a fabulous Kickstarter idea!

  16. Alison K says:

    BONUS Meriance ENTRY: I think it’s an innovative product but I’m not sure of it’s practicality – why not just use free sites like Skype or WhatsApp to chat with family? Having to carry it around, insert my SIM (I can see me totally leaving it in the machine when I go out) and relying on Wifi which has it’s on security issues would probably not encourage me to purchase this item or suggest it to anyone. Plus subscription fees?

  17. william fraser says:

    the family would like it!!

  18. Lauren says:

    That is an awesome idea – I would love it while travelling!

    could be cool , but there are alternatives (skype)

    My travelling grandchildren would love this and so would their paying parents.

  22. Carol Oddy says:

    This is a great idea to help save on long distance, would use this myself to call my son because he lives in Alberta.

  23. janicour says:

    I travel quite a bit internationally. I would be interested in checking this out!!

  24. cookie3 says:

    I don’t travel as much anymore so for me it’s not a necessity but I could see it being useful for others who travel more.

  25. Mary Danieli says:

    This would be great for my niece if she intends to travel in the near future.

  26. Lisa S says:

    Everyone in my family could use one of these bad boys….

  27. Denae Boucher says:

    This is so cool! My bff would love this!
