If your current phone is still active and if you have pictures that you want to keep, send the picture to your email address instead of a cell phone number. This way, you can keep the pictures that you really want.
If it were me, I would still hold onto the SIIM card and create a spreadsheet with the names and numbers of your family and friends. Over a 10 year period, more than likely some of your friends and family will have different numbers. Since you plan on keeping access to an Internet connection to maintain contact with your family and friends, a pay as you go service might be the best option. Be careful on cruise ships. If you have a smartphone, cruise ships have repeaters built in in order for your device to work that won't be included in your plan. With my experience, it's best to power your smartphone all the way off and have it saved in the ships safe. This will prevent an unexpected huge bill.
Skype is a good way to keep in contact with your family and friends too. It will use the Internet connection that you'll be using. For more info, check out the link below: www.skype.com/intl/en-us/home
