Cell Phone in Europe

Depends on who you ask I guess.
If you want to make phone calls back home your best bet is to buy a good calling card and use a pay phone. If you travel with a laptop you can get a really great rate using skype to call home. If you want to talk to a loved one back home you can use skype-skype for free.
A cellphone really is not necessary for most people. There were a few people on my trip last June that would call home and friends back at home every day and be on it for 30 minutes to an hour. For me it’s not much of a vacation if I have to call home all the time or have friends calling me. But some people have not left home before and get homesick.
Make sure at all times you have your “oh-****-sheet” which has the phone number and address to all the hotels in case you forget how to get back to the hotel.
