Hello all; my girlfriend and I leave on June 5 from the USA for our grand adventure... We fly into Oslo and plan to hitchhike to Russia after spending a month or so camping in Norway. Then we plan to stay in Russia until the colder months at which point we hope to hitch to southern Italy and spend the winter WWOOFing or doing something similar.

We have a Straight Talk pay-as-you-go phone with no SIM card, and are wondering what our options are. We'd like to have a phone that people of every country we'll visit can call us on, and one with which we can call home once in a while. Is there a phone we can get in Oslo that will meet our needs? We have no needs other than calling and maybe texting, so the cheapest possible option is what we're after.

Thanks in advance.
