Truphone's Local Anywhere SIM gives you a local number anywhere, as long as 'anywhere' is the US or UK

Truphone -- better known for its VoIP services than anything else -- is getting into the rough-and-tumble world of international roaming with the introduction of its Local Anywhere SIM. At a glance, you might think that it works like countless other global prepaid SIMs that are ready to get shoved into the unlocked quadband phone of your choice, but here's Truphone's secret: on its higher-end packages, you can add local numbers for countries you visit frequently. To borrow the company's example, this means local pizza delivery dudes can buzz you without placing a multi-dollar call. The big hangup is that you can only get numbers in the US and UK at this point, but they'll apparently be adding in Australia, Netherlands, South Africa, and "many more" this year.
