Heya,
I'm going on a rtw and I'm interested in bringing a cell phone with me just to use for txt messages when meeting up with people.

Has anyone dealt with international cell phone plans? Or any recommendations? Possibly even purchasing a cell phone and getting a pay-as-you-go plan? But would that work internationally?

Thanks,
Gavin

Hey, for my two month Eurotrip I found these guys to be the cheapest overall.

I did a ton of research and I'm pretty sure you won't find any cheaper than that.

Good luck!

Those prices are more than using my own mobile whilst roaming!!!

if you will go to a lot of rural areas in the developing countries, it is worth it to get a satellite phone.

Who is your phone company? They are MUCH cheaper than any Canadian company while roaming.
