Renting Phones In France And Greece

Thu Jul 20, 2006 12:37 am

I am looking in renting a pre-paid phone - I think. I would like to you what is the best deal for renting an international phone. I have Verizon service and their international "Global phone" is a rip-off. Can I buy a pre-paid phone in Greece and France to use while I'm there?
Thanks,
SR

Can I ask what this has to do with Civil Aviation, apart from flying to Greece and France

As far as Greece is concerned, you just buy a prepaid package for one of the operators at the airport bookshop on arrival, if you have a GSM phone it will cost you 30 Euro (SIM card + airtime).

900 Band - VODAFON, TIM
1800 Band - COSMOTE

Have a nice flight

I use PicCell when I've lived in Europe for extended periods. It is not pre-paid, but the prices are reasonable. For my usage, it was cheaper than going the pre-paid route, but I also use the phone alot.

Probably the best prepaid package is from Cosmote (www.cosmote.gr also in English). The plan is called COSMOKARTA.
Starts at 49�, phone, SIM and 10� of airtime included.
Top up cards of 9, 15 and 30� (worth 33) available.
