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

Most use local providers. Not expensive. - Aug 26, 2017
Bring an unlocked phone and service is about $20 per month- super cheap! - Jun 22, 2017
Orange. There are special offers to diplomatic missions. - Feb 11, 2017
Local provider. We have Orange. - Sep 19, 2016
The Embassy can arrange a contract for personal use with Orange that only costs us about 10 Euros per month and includes a lot of data usage. - Jun 23, 2015
Everything is here. Skype and Vonage are best for international calling. - Dec 25, 2009
Mine was provided by the embassy, so I am not sure. But I never heard any horror stories about cost or poor service. - Apr 7, 2010
