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

I use a local provider. I never had a problem with mobile phones, and my bills are around 6 euros per month. :) - Jun 16, 2017
Telia. 25 GBs for 20 euros a month. - Sep 7, 2016
Get account locally. I recommend EMT. - Jan 28, 2013
You can get any kind you want here, iphones or pay as you go, most are reasonably priced with good service. - Oct 28, 2012
Use EMT as a service provider. They sell phones here, or bring an "unlocked" version from the US. - Oct 6, 2012
The embassy provides a phone upon arrival. It's not usually the best phone. Buy a compatible phone of your choice to use with the provided sim card. Return ugly phone (with card) at end of tour. Family members are not assigned embassy phones, but there are reliable local plans to choose from. - Sep 8, 2010
Service is good. - Aug 9, 2009
