He needs something (a quad band phone, in fact) with a SIM-card. That's AT&T or T-mobile, if he wants to buy it in America.
There are so many plans (pay as you go) that's it's impossible to tell which one is best. That also depends on how much phone calls, how much SMS and how much Mb data traffic he expects.
However, since most contracts last one year, it's better to have an American contract and use that in Europe for a few months than the other way around.
A friend of mine is going to Europe for a couple of months. He is going to be in several countries in western Europe.
He wants to get a cell phone with a service plan that will get him coverage in all the countries he visits. He also wants to be able to get his AOL email on his cell phone.
So I'm looking for suggestions as to what the best plan of action would be. Would he be able to get a phone here in the USA and make all the arrangements for the service he will need, or should he wait until he gets to England and get a phone and service agreement there?
What would the best phone be in this case, a Blacberry or perhaps the T-Mobile G1?
He already has a cell phone with Verizon as the carrier, if that matters.
Thanks so much for your help.
