Subject: International Mobile Phones

The topic of phones for use abroad has been covered before I'm sure, but it remains a frustrating subject for some of us, particularly me.

I'd be interested in hearing from those of you who have mobile phones for use abroad. What company/phone do you use and how wide a geographical swath do you have coverage for? And, do you have or know of mobile phones that allow direct use between US and Canada or England, for example, like we can do with land lines?

Any solutions/suggestions/enlightenment would be most welcome!
