I got a German phone - craptastic prepaid thing. It was most useful
for text messages, and I got it for 30 euros, across the street from
the congress center. I didn't try to use it in other countries.
Anyway, a trick that Nicole did when she was there - she was using her
iPod Touch as a cellphone. Using wifi and skype. That's an option,
though not as reliable as an actual phone.
