Indiana Phones and the Taiwan of Doom

Dear EAPSIs,

I've compiled some phone resources for us while in Taiwan:
According to Mike W. and some friends in Taiwan, it might be easier just to buy international calling cards.

Calling Cards are ~ $300 TWD for 60 minutes
SimCards are ~ $0.18 TWD/second

Taiwan Youth Travel
also seems to have lots of resources, and was highly recommended.

Only 18 days until orientation - I'm not prepared... but I couldn't be more ready.


PS: I'm compiling my karaoke songs-to-learn list... suggestions?

"More than a Feeling" by Boston is the greatest song ever written.

Thanks, Kris!

I forgot to add the obvious, Skype.

Here's my karaoke list so far (sans Boston):
Righteous Brothers - You've Lost that Loving Feeling
2Pac/Dr. Dre - California Love
Sheena Easton - My Baby Takes the Morning Train
The Darkness - I Believe in a Thing Called Love
Lustra - Scotty Doesn't Know
The Isley Brothers/Temptations/Animal House Soundtrack - Shout

Duet songs: Don't Go Breaking my Heart (Elton John/Kiki Dee)

Islands in the Stream (Kenny Rogers/Dolly Parton)

I'm trying to learn as much Elton John and Billy Joel as possible. And Prince.

If you have cingular and a GSM phone, you will need to call them to unlock your phone.
