    Not a good idea

    US is the same. There is also a double taxation issue if one stays in another country too long. For some US states, when someone is working in offices in two states, the hours in each state also have to be tracked.

    Usually manager will not know the tax implication, but when it reaches the HR, the HR in an international company definitely will know.

    Unless you don't care losing your job, it is not a good idea to do it. I personally don't want to violate the trust of my boss so I always tell him where I am. I had a conference call with several customers early this morning at 4 AM, but I fall asleep. Fortunately, another coworker also attended the meeting, he called me on my company number to wake me up. The coworker didn't know where I was. It could turn out badly for me and my boss if I missed the meeting.

Here's the issue though: I really do not want them to know I'm out of the country.
    When I was working for an international company here in the Netherlands there was a clause in my contract that said I had to live in the Netherlands because the company was based in the Netherlands (the Dutch part of it anyway). Visiting another branch of the company in another country for a meeting or whatever was allowed of course, but I had to be based in the Netherlands. They told me it was a requirement of the tax authorities.

    However I don't know the requirements of the tax authorities (or any other authorities for that matter) in the USA.

So apparently she thinks the local pharmacies are selling bogus drugs.
    Some Pharmacies may sell fake stuff, which means source of the drugs is questionable and quality could be poor to not working at all. Other Pharmacies get criticised for not stocking drugs that they cannot trust to be effective, particularly when comes to hormones. In past I heard they used to import hormones from Germany but may not be able to do so any more, meaning more questionable sources get used by some places.

    Should check with Pharmacy if they mean: generic copies are sold (which maybe okay Depending on source), or low quality, or does she mean rip-offs where product is totally fake.

    Not quite everything is readily available.

    I don't think you can do that without paying a fee for international calls. The point of Google voice is to use US number to receive call while outside of US. You can set it up with your android phone.

    Since you are using Android, you can check out Porject Fi to see if your phone qualify to use it.

Before I left for Thailand I sunscrobed to googles VOIP phone system and got a local USA number. Then I subscribe to a VPN so I can access the American number. That way I can make a receive calls on this American number and no one knows where I am. VPN location must always be set to USA or it won't work. All in should be 4,000 Baht per month. If you keep your American number active, no need for the VPN or google hangouts VOIP service. Register the American number with skype. Then buy skype credit and you can then make and receive calls through skype.
    Wow, this seems pretty cool. Let me verify I got this right. I get the AIS package and throw that in my personal phone. I have an android, but more than likely, it will still work. I go in my android, set up a hotspot and that would be what I would utilize when logging in, then doing my work on the company laptop. According to what you are saying, not only is the connection faster than wifi, but it also sounds like it's much more secure, because I'm not sharing my hotspot with other people. Huge benefit! Before I go to Thailand and buy the AIS, I would need to get a local phone number here in USA with google or Skype. If google, VPN is a requirement, so VPN would need to be installed on the phone. I currently have PureVPN, but it's only on my personal laptop, so it will need to be on my personal phone as well. When you say "subscribe to a VPN so I can access the American number", does this mean you have to stay logged in to the VPN in order to make / receive calls? I may go the Skype route as mentioned by you and Franga, but just wanted to ask.

    It seems that after all this, I should have my business phone number be forwarded to this new local number and that should be it, huh?

    RTFF their website. They are slow except Mexico. Not good for voice calls. OK for mail.

    In Thailand, Philippines and Dominican Republic it is slow, so I keep a local SIM in those places. Most everywhere else that I go it works fine. If you only need to send messages it is okay, but if you have to go to a website is when you see the 2 G speed, if you can even get to the website.

Here's the issue though: I really do not want them to know I'm out of the country. I realize that in Thailand, I will need to find a hotel / condo that has great internet, as that is key, but not sure who has consistently GREAT internet (hopefully wired, as I'm thinking its more secure), so that will take some research, but also, I have to have a situation where if my manager wants to call me on my business line, he can call me and I can pick up the phone as if I'm still in the states. There can't be some situation of a company phone bill saying there was some long distance charge to thailand. Nobody at the office contacts anybody on whatsapp, so that's out and is suspicious. Should be a regular phone number someone is dialing and I need to be able to call into business meetings without incurring myself a $500 dollar phone bill.

    Anybody have tips on how its possible to do something like this? If not possible and too much headache, I won't do it, but I'm really thinking something can be done. I'm willing to purchase what I have to in order to do this. I love Thailand!

    Will be travelling with:

    * Company laptop and company phone &.

    * Personal laptop and personal phone.

    Thanks for your help. Either issue you can speak on (phone or internet), will be greatly appreciated.

    TMobile Speeds in Thailand and Asia?

    I see that this is actually a response to RobJones, but I think this suggestion can possibly help me out as well with my post. Thanks.

The price that someone calling you will pay is the same as calling that local number where you live. However you will be receiving calls over the internet via Skype, so you need to be connected. The caller can just use any phone be it cell phone or landline. There would be no indication that you would be in Thailand.
    Really appreciate that suggestion Franga. Concerning receiving calls over the Internet, I will try to make sure wifi is always connected when walking through the city. Looking into this Skype thing now!

    Yeah good point and I realize that I'll be working at nighttime in Thailand, where it will be daytime here. I'm sure I can manage it though. There's fun to be had in Pattaya during the day. Got plenty of time to sleep when I'm dead, so I'll just work and have as much fun as possible for now.

    Yes, or just buy the SIM at the airport for 49 Baht, put a few hundred Baht credit on it at the desk where you buy the SIM and then choose the package that suits your planned usage.

    I use DTAC so packages here. http://www.dtac.co.th/en/prepaid/pro...-packages.html.

    And the other cellphone operator providers have similar offers.
