I am in the U.S.
I would like to be able to go to Ireland and Poland and be able to tether my laptop to some kind of MIFI-like device or a cell phone that can create a wireless hotspot.
From what I've read here, this is going to be expensive if not impossible.
- It's cheaper to get a SIM within each country for GSM phones.
- GSM phones must be unlocked.
- If I buy a phone here in the U.S. with an eye toward International data use, I may be able to do that, but it won't be inexpensive and they may not let me tether at all.
What I'm asking for is a reality check on the three statements I've made above.
And, of course, any ideas on what I might be able to do to accomplish the goals. :-)
