My daughter is in Spain studying this semester. She got a Spanish cell phone when she got there and she prepurchases minutes for outgoing calls. It is expensive for her to call the US but we got an international calling plan with our long distance provider (Sprint but I think MCI has similar). We pay $3 a month plus 12 cents per minute. We call her instead.
I don't know what India is like though.

Many companies have phone rentals that can be picked up at the destination -- try Orange Phone or Adam Phone? I used both in the UK (which may or may not help you with this trip!) -- try a google search with "Cell Phone Rental" ? It is a real good idea to have a cell on hand these days....!
