Data Only SIM + SkypeIn – today it’s a hack, tomorrow it’s hookflash

VC Fred Wilson describes how he’s using Skype, a new number and Kik for his European travel – soon he can just use hookflash and his LinkedIn directory: work, life, simplified
“May 17 2012

I’ve been in London all week.

When I arrived at Heathrow I bought a data only SIM in the vending machine in baggage claim.

My friend Simon suggested I set up a new Skype account and get a UK SkypeIn number.

I did that and I have been operating without a voice connection. I use skype for voice, Kik for text, and everything else works just fine on data.

It’s a pretty sweet lifehack. Give it a try the next time you are on the road out of your home country.”
