Default sim card

I will be travelling in the Mediterranean to Spain and Italy and want to know the best way to call back to US on a cell phone. Is it better to go thru my local cell phone Verizon wireless or get a sim card GSM phone. If the latter is it cheaper to buy the phone and sim card in the US before I leave or pick it up in Italy and Spain.

Default Re: sim card

Mike.. don't know if it's the best way, but I need to be in contact with home while on my European cruise next week. I've arranged to rent a "world phone" for the two weeks. Cost to me will be about $60 US for the 14 days, plus 90 cents/minute.
