sims, locks & Nokia 3100

by cellnaive    Sep 25, 2006, 3:08 PM

Forgive me, i'm new to this.
I have a Nokia 3100 which has a provider and a number based in the UK.
I'm now off to other points in the globe (Argentina, Mexico, Germany, Japan). By the time calls in those countries are either sent or received on this phone, it's costing me a fortune per minute.
Should i be buying a new SIM for my phone as i arrive in each country?
Does that mean i get a new (local) phone number with each new SIM?
Am I buying a prepaid sim? or arranging for new billing each time??
And what does having "locked" or "unlocked" phone mean and how would I know if mine is locked or unlocked?
Thanks in advance,
cn
