Do you have any recommendations regarding mobile phones? Did you keep your home-country plan or use a local provider?

We used unlocked phones brought from the US. We did not want to buy any locally. When I had one stolen, I had to wait until someone could bring a phone from the US for me as it could not be shipped via pouch. - Aug 7, 2017
