Best place to buy phone for international travel?

by susan7874    Apr 15, 2008, 5:36 PM

I really need advice. I will be leaving in two days for 5 month trip to incl: South Pacific, New Zealand,Australia,SE Asia,India, and Africa.

I cannot figure out what would be the most cost-effective phone including SIM card, and best place to purchase it.

Is it more expensive to buy in Fiji,New Zealand,Australia- than U.S.?

Would purchasing a Passport+ SIM card be advisable? Has anyone any experience purchasing phone through STA Travel?

Is there any particular rate plan/phone you would recommend?

I just want basic phone, preferably with a camera, and hopefully keep same phone number regardless of country.

Thanks for your help.
