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

There are several local mobile phone providers with a variety of plans and pricing options. Starting and stopping service can be a bit complicated so having someone along that speaks Croatian fairly well can be helpful. Coverage was generally good throughout the country with the occasional blank spot. The Embassy provides a Blackberry to most employees. - Aug 5, 2014
The Embassy provides a blackberry and also a brick phone for the spouses. If you wish to bring an unlocked smartphone, you can get a duplicate SIM card and add a data plan to your account (about US$14 a month for 1GB of data). Your spouse can just use the SIM card from the brick phone in their iPhone/Android. - Feb 18, 2014
Coverage is good, there is a choice between at least three providers. - Mar 2, 2009
