Does the below sound correct, or am I missing something?
I’ve never had a smartphone. I plan on buying an Android smartphone in Cuenca. Then I’d download the Skype app and purchase a US Skype phone number. Then friends and family in the US can call my US Skype number and it’d ring on my smartphone in Cuenca and I’d pick up on the Skype app.
Also, I have no desire to have a local Ecuador phone number as I use email for communication here. Thus, is it true that I won’t need a phone chip (SIM card), rather my smartphone will simply connect to the Internet via WiFi, in order for my smartphone to ring, and in order for me to pick up the call on the Skype app?
Thank you for any input,
