I am going to Bombay, Pune and Goa, is it worth me taking my mobile phone?

Hi philip
I counldn,t get you. Bombay ,Pune, Goa have full mobile coverage of all the leading mobile operators of INDIA. They have also got international roaming facility.
But if you are thinking about the cost factor, I think you better take a new prepaid connection in India. It will be much more cheaper and you will be able to recharge it anywhere in India. A new prepaid connection comes around Rs 300 to Rs 500. ( around 4-6 UK Pounds.)
moreover all incoming calls are free. About the handset, you will get a decent Mobile around Rs 3000 - Rs 6000.
Now you decide yourself.

Hi Bibs

Yes I did mean is there network coverage. However you raised an interesting point and will also look to buy an Indian network phone or sim card.
