Cell / Mobile phone advice needed

28 Replies 396 Views Created 16-07-2012

Hey Guys

 

Im coming to the UK in August :D

 

Im after getting a cell phone so I can call home, but one I can also to use in the UK

 

Is it best to buy one in America & then have the international thing put on, or is it better to get a sim card from the UK & use that.

 

I want to call home probably about once or twice a month & using it in the UK just to call my honey

 

So ideas & suggestions please on what is best

If you get one in America check its gsm, GSM is used everywhere in the world up to 90% of the world, but in America you use CDMA.

 

You will need to just double check its dualband.

 

Enjoy the UK amigo.

Oh yes, I keep forgetting this is a family forum. Where you can't say bad words, although it's OK to promote films about twisted serial killers who massacre teenagers, because that's entirely different.

Those things are fine, cause the people who take part in them, are not offended by them and dont report them. 

 

Obviously people were offended by the follow up questions to the public displays of affection and reported them.

 

Also you need an account for skype, and its free but you can buy credit to phone american land lines, and mobiles, but you will need an internet connection.

Yes, I understand. Of course I wouldn't be so bold as to suggest that double standards were being employed in this fine forum, although it may appear that way to the untrained eye.

Actually if you sign up for a google voice account while in america, you should be able to sign into it in the UK and phone local numbers for free.
