Ideas for use in Norway & USA

by EricD    Jul 26, 2008, 1:04 PM

I do not have a cell phone.

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.
