I currently live in Canada. In a few months, my friends and I will be going to Norway for 9 months for a program at a school in Norway. The trip will be mostly in Norway but would extend to a large chunk of Europe as well. Some of the places and countries I would be visiting are:
There may be other placed involved, we haven't gotten the full list yet.
The duration of the trip is 9 months. It will be mostly in Norway (where my friends and I are staying) but we will be taking a backpacking trip through Europe, visiting the locations listed above. We wont be spending much time in each country (few days per country, total of about 2.5 weeks) and since the entire trip is only 9 months or so, I am assuming that a monthly pay as you go plan would probably be the best way to go.
I currently have a Samsung Galaxy S4. I am wondering if there is any way I can buy a SIM card for my phone in Norway that would also work in the rest of Europe. I am not looking for something that would allow me to call back to Canada, but instead be something that would allow me to send a few texts to my friends who are also going on the trip (who would get a SIM card just like me) and maybe a little internet.
So does such a plan actually exist and would a SIM card from Norway actually work in my S4 from Canada? My current provider doesn't provide anything useful and I would have to cancel my current plan anyway.
