Subject: Mobile phones in S America
Hi Ziners, Please can I have a simple answer to this question - I'm too old to be a high-tech geek so it's no good giving me tons of guff.

Last year I went to Argentina and Chile and I'm going back in a few months. I couldn't use my phone there and borrowed one from a local company - it looked the same (a basic Nokia) but they told me its innards were different and that this type of phone was what works in the US and S America, whereas my phone was the type that works in Europe, Australia etc.

My question is - I need a new phone anyway, can I get one nowadays that will work in S America, Europe AND Australia or is that still not possible?

Thanks for your help.

Best wishes Michael Sydney, Australia
