Subject: Cell Phones for Europe Site
Hello Ziners,

Several people have e-mailed me asking for the website that sells cell phones for Europe. The site is http://www.telestial.com The usual disclaimers are true in this case. I have no interest in this company, have not yet used any of their services, and can't assure anybody they will get any level of satisfaction. :)

They advertise a phone for $99. But then you must buy a SIM card for $89. The Sim card includes EUR 30 worth of phone calls. I presume that additional prepaid minutes are less expensive since you don't have to purchase another SIM card as long as one stays in Italy. I believe you must purchase another SIM card for coverage in other countries in Europe, Asia and Africa.

I have decided to purchase a phone card at the Italian tobacco shops.

Best wishes, Paul Seattle
