Other options would be to get a cheap (used?) gsm phone and slap a prepaid sim in it when you get there for calls. They have cheap traveller's phones there too, I believe.

Verizon can also give you a loaner for travelling- probably charge an arm and a leg though.
So if i were to use that app it would go over data?

Also do you think it would be a good idea to fork up the 400$ for a gsm version https://play.google.com/store/devices/details/Galaxy_Nexus_HSPA?id=galaxy_nexus_hspa

Then just return it when i get back?
