Found 13th Apr 2010
My mum is travelling to Australia this summer for 6 weeks, however she wants a phone so that she can contact people in the UK. Can anyone suggest what deal she should get.

Thanks in advance.


If she takes a laptop, she could use skype for video calls and IM.

Can she not get a mobile while she'e over there with cheap calls? sometime's it works out cheaper if you have a network from the country you'r in

Take an unlocked phone, go into a phone shop over there like Vodafone and just buy a sim card.

I had one for the 6 months i was there, and my sister came to visit for a month, and i made sure she had an australian number when she got here as its much cheaper to do it that way sending txt messages that way

She will be able to but phone cards over there where she simply puts in the number of phone card into the phone she is using before dialing number.
