I studied in the US for 10 months around 4 years ago now (2009-10). At that time I only had a Pay as You Go phone in my home country, so I just wanted to get a similar thing in the US. I got a cheap phone in Walmart that had a non-contract AT&T SIM card included. I think it was $30 but that actually included $20 of top-up (or whatever it is called in the ...

Turkey is really a strange country when it comes to foreign mobile phones operating with a local SIM Card. Although the purpose was fighting against mobile phones' black market, if you don't register your phone's IMEI number, it might get blocked in 60 days according to new law. If you are staying shorter than 2-3 weeks I would not suggest you to put an ...

Tesco's broadband only SIMs are for tablets. If you get a pay-as-you-go mobile phone SIM and top-up by €15 a month you get: unlimited calls to RoI mobiles and landlines, free texts to other Tesco Ireland mobiles, 250 webtexts (which can be sent from their mobile app), 5GB of data (an add-on which costs €10 a month) and have €5 left for texts to other ...

If you are stepping out of the airport in Columbia then you might have a problem as you will be required to go through customs there. As far as taking the phones into Argentina it depends. Usually you are only allowed ONE device per device class(i.e. cellphone, tablet, camera, laptop) per person. So legally if you bring more than that in you will either ...
