Ideas for use in Norway & USA
I am going to Norway for 1 year.
I was thinking of buying a T-Mobile prepaid Motorola V195 for $30 and activate a domestic account, then asking T-Mobile to unlock the phone, going to Norway and getting a local prepaid SIM card to use there. The idea is to have 2 SIM cards at my disposal, depending on the use I need or desire.
Is this pie in the sky? Am I better off to just buy an unlocked phone from the start? Are phones less expensive in Europe? Are SIM cards interchangeable?
Any help or suggestions greatly appreciated.
Tmobile should unlock your phone after 90 days of service, and at least 1 topup. Just topup with the $25 refill that comes with it. If you can't wat 90 days, then use one of the 3rd parties, such as ebay to unlock it.
