Assume that I don't have any Internet access in my country. The only thing that I have is a mobile phone with a 3G or 4G SIM card inside. The mobile operator didn't provide any Internet access also.

Now I want to send some data (Text/Voice) to my friend in another country. Is there any way? How I can do it?

And if I want the communication to be secure, what shall I do? I mean I don't want to anybody be able gain the data, except my friend. is there any way? If so, how?

Yes, you could encrypt your data.

This will be hard if you don't have a smartphone. You could manually encrypt your text messages using One-time pad (Cold War tactics basically). Manually encrypting voice messages is not possible, unless you invent some kind of secret language (which will never be a 100% secure).

If you do have android, have a look here: https://www.eff.org/secure-messaging-scorecard Some of these apps (Like Open WhisperSystems TextSecure) can use regular SMS.
