True, but in the end, considering everything, it may be the best solution.
I have also used an old mobile phone, not simlocked, with a OneSimCard. You get a number actually based in one of the Baltic countries. Cheap when you call, not so nice for callers when you are called. For your three-week stay, we are talking maybe of 12 local calls altogether, you are not even sure you are saving any money compared to long-distance calls from Canada.
You surely know that WhatsApp works in Switzerland, but that might not be what you are looking for.
