Temporary sim cards for "smart fones"?

Post by DennyD » Mon Feb 21, 2011 4:34 am

We're hoping to go to Egypt late next month. We have an Iphone4 and a BB. Can you tell me if I can get a "micro sim" for the Iphone 4 and a sim for my BB we can use the 2 weeks we're there? If so, where do I get them and do you have an idea of the cost?

Yes you can get a sim for your Iphone and BB, if you get a normal pay as you go sim the cost isaround 5le (55p) calls in egypt (mobiles) cost around 19 piastas (2p) a minute, cost to europe I think is about 1.99le a minute (20p).

They do an holiday sim too (more expensive), but i think you would be better off with just a normal pay as you go sim, you do need your passport with you when you buy a sim card.

Prices above are for vodaphone (which are the best to use)
