Subject: Re: PUPT: Cell phones?


Just a word of warning though- I used to have the 'bare bones' cell phone plan.  I used it to travel with as well.  Well, much to my surprise I ended up with a huge phone bill! Some of the plans aren't cheap, but if you get slapped with a $200 bill, that $15 plan doesn't seem like a good idea anymore.  It's very easy to go over your minutes & unless you are vigilant, anal & have a good short term memory, there's a good chance that it's easy to loose track.

If you are only getting it for the trip, a calling card or a short term option would probably be better. The phones are expensive if you get them w/o a plan. And only a few phone work internationally & those plans are more expensive.
