For my New Zealand adventure, I’ve been trying to come up with an “affordable” cellular solution so that I don’t completely fall off the map.
I’ve discovered that the US is on a 900 mhz GSM network, while most of the world flows though 850/1800/1900 GSM networks. I could explain all about that but lets just say, my cell phone is only compatable in the US and areas of Canada.
In order to stay “connected” I’m going to need an unlocked, SIM’s compatable cell phone thats capable of connecting to all the different network mhz. For me, this means new phone and new sims card. I’m not too crazy about the idea of buying a seperate phone for international travel so I’ve decided to jump on board with the US, SIM’s networks. So, who gets your vote for best service, quality, and price?
