Hi,
Does any one know what is the best thing to do about geting a mobile phone in Europe? I am wondering if i should just bring my old phone (unlocked) and buy a sim when i get to Portugal? but will i then have to then buy a sim card in each country i travel in? Or is there a travel sim i could get that would work anywhere?
Thanks

Hi Sarah,

I never found an European wide SIM card (without paying roaming of course). If you find one, please let me know.
In Portugal you can easily buy a SIM card. For example, for the company UZO it costs 5 euros and comes with 15 euros of credit!

Please have in mind that if you come from American continent your mobile phone may use a different kind of technology and sometimes it may be incompatible with the European standards.

Wish you a nice WWOOFing,

Rodrigo

Thanks for the info. I am coming from the UK. I will probably just get the sim which you recommended.
