Subject: Mobile phones for visitors to the US
Hi Ziners:

My family and I will be returning to the US in August for a couple of weeks. It would be great if we could have a mobile phone in case of emergencies etc. We can't use our French mobiles because the GSM system ih Europe is on a different frequency from that in the US.

In France, one can buy a mobile phone with a prepaid card so you don't have to subscribe to a service. When you run out of talk time, you refill the card, or get a new one.

I've heard that phones like these now exist in the States. Can anyone direct me to a phone company that provides cell phones with prepaid cards?

Merci d'avance et bons voyages!

Evan in Paris
