i didnt have an ekit on my tour but other people did and they actually had some trouble with it. there were some places where it wouldnt work. you should also budget a little extra phone money than you expect. when i went i didnt really expect to call home much but when i got there and everyone else was talking to their family i wanted to also and i ended up spending a lot more phone money than i intended. depending on your phone company you should check what their rates are for an international plan. thats what i did and it worked out much better in my favor.
There are plenty of calling cards you can purchase in Europe. I picked up one that had no connection charges and toll free access numbers in all the EU countries. ~0.10 Euro/minute to call Au/NZ/Ca/US.
