|Subject: Re: GSM phone for traveling US resident|
Don't know if anyone's mentioned this yet, but http://www.telestial.com/products/promo.htm has a list of international travel phone promotions, as well as a "tutorial" on GSM phones, SIM cards, etc.
Also, some good deals on unlocked, tri-band phones can be found at http://www.samstores.com .
I thought the following phone offers were interesting ~ especially the Panasonic EB-G70, which looks like a round make-up compact with a mirror in the top lid!
Panasonic A100 triband world phone (unlocked) Price:US$80.00
Siemens S40 GSM Phone Tri Band. Use it anywhere in the World (Unlocked). Phone Price: US$93.00
Panasonic EB-G70 triband gsm phone (unlocked)Price: US$95.00
Good Luck! Rhonda
