I have a short stint at Manila and also have to visit a few other south asian countries. Is Airtel World SIM recommended for me rather than international calling cards? The advantage of Airtel World SIM is that I will not have to buy separate calling cards for each country and I can receive calls on my india number. check http://www.airtel.in/worldsim
