Inexpensive cell phone for local calls during international travel

Jump to last reply

I'd like to buy an inexpensive, no-frills cell phone for international travel, in case I need to make local calls; I would not use it much. I'd buy a SIM card in each destination. Where in the West Los Angeles area might I find such a phone? The internet is a possibility, but I would need to be able to get it in a week. Our first international stop will be Israel, for 2 weeks. Would it make sense to buy it there?

Thanks!
