Ok I lied; I do not have a new SIM card number in Ethiopia.

Normally when I enter a country, I will go a purchase a SIM card to install in my Quad Band Cell or Mobile Phone. I have not purchased one in Ethiopia because they are expensive; the card cost about 35 dollars here. Normally in most countries the SIM card cost between 3 and 15 dollars, I am not sure 35 dollars is good deal, I would need to stay here for at least two-three months.

Nonetheless, I decided to call my “Verizon Blackberry Storm” number and see if worked.

Before you email your new SIM Card Telephone number to you Mom or friends, make sure to test it with Skype.com.
