Bandar Seri Begawan - Post Report Question and Answers

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

You need a local provider. I brought an unlocked iPhone and bought a chip for it. Unlimited calls and data costs me $25USD/mo. - Jan 2021

Get a smart phone and learn to use whatsapp, which is used by everyone in Brunei. - Aug 2014

Bring one! They're really expensive to buy here. - Nov 2013

One provider - very good. - Dec 2008

It's Asia! Buy a cool new model in Singapore or Hong Kong on your way through! Consumer electronics (especially) in Brunei are marked way up. More than 100 percent in some cases for hot newer models. - Jan 2008
