Spending about 5 weeks in Thailand this summer and I was wondering what the best (and cheapest) way to make periodic calls home to the girlfriend and family is.
Should I buy a phone in country with a SIM card?
Should I invest in calling cards back in the US (or in Thailand)?
Bring my Blackberry and buy a SIM card that's compatible in Thailand?
Thanks in advance.

For your cheapest option to call the US Skype would be it. It is available at almost all internet cafe's and lots of guest houses.
If you are looking for a phone to make in country calls or for others to call you then an unlocked phone is not a bad idea to take with you. you can get pre-paid SIM cards starting at less than USD$3.
