Technology for Expats: The VOIP Phone

If you've ever thought about how to move to Mexico and what will come along with moving to the best country to retire in, I'm sure you've had a lot of questions. One of them that often pops up is how to stay in touch with loved ones while living abroad. You would probably learn these things from retirement communities in Mexico eventually, but it's good to have as clear an idea as possible on what living in Riviera Nayarit, Mexico would be like.

Welcome to this 101 session on Technology for Expats

The VOIP phone is a great system and a very clever service for those living abroad. A VOIP phone is essentially a normal telephone that can be easily used without any special devices, so long as you have a connection to the Internet. The ingenious part is this: the VOIP service that you choose will give you a local phone number with the area code of your choice so that friends and family can call you (the call is diverted from that phone to the Internet phone) with with no extra cost to either parties. A definite must-have for those living overseas.

If you have any fun tips for using a VOIP phone in Mexico, please write me below!
