If the phone is unlocked then you will save a lot of money with a local SIM. For example, Lebara Mobile would be 27 cents a minute for UK calls and 27 cents per MB. See http://www.lebara.co.uk/prepay/rates You can pick SIM cards up from vending machines at Heathrow and other airports. If you forget to do that you can get them from pretty much every ...

There is no "activation" cost in Thailand, just buy a sim, insert and call. SIMs are dirt cheap, usually 50 baht, with 50 baht in call time credit, so basically free. Calls are anywhere from 50 satang to 1 baht a minute domestically, 1 to 10 baht a minute internationally. There are a myriad of plans offered with prepay rates. All three cellphone ...

I had to do the same thing. I just walked into a couple of cell phone stores in Paris - Vodafone etc and asked a young person (many of them speak English) for a prepaid SIM card that included 1GB of data. Ask them to set it up for you. English wasn't perfect but it worked. 99% of international airports have cell phone stores and more often than not have ...

In the list of international roaming charges the Virgin Islands are not listed separately - since they're US territory it is then safe to assume you won't pay roaming.

Movistar is in all of those places, Claro may be as well, but when you register for the SIM, you incur roaming charges once you move to the next country. A few years ago, getting a SIM in each country ...

I've used http://www.onesimcard.com/ in Mexico (supposedly it works in more than 200 countries), but I can't recommend it 100%. It can be difficult to use, and the calls and SMSes often failed. But of course it's better than nothing! I would recommend getting OneSimCard as a backup, but then trying to pick up a cheap SIM card in each country as a primary ...

With the arrival of virtual carriers, the status quo of the Czech mobile market has changed dramatically. Today I would recommend Mobil.cz. Once you activate the $10 SIM, you'll get free 200MB + reasonable FUP and $10 of credit that can be used for calls. The only downside is that if you want more than 200MB without FUP, the only option with Mobil.cz is to ...

You might want to consider Lyca Mobile http://www.lycamobile.fr/en/offers-mobile-internet It is not a prepaid plan (I do know they had special deals of 10 euro for 1000 mb for 30 days). However I notice that promo is not available right now. But you can get 1 mb for 9 cents. It is quite much but the good thing is that they offer english support. All you ...
