PHONE RENTAL before leaving for Asia

Jump to last reply

I will be leaving for Indonesia in about a week and I need to stay in touch with the States. The pople I need to stay in touch with don't Skype.

I am ultimately heading for Raja Ampat - there is no cell service there. However, I will be in Jakarta on long layovers, Bali for a couple of days and then Tokyo for another long layover. I want to communicate back home during those times.

My iphone 5 is locked and I don't want to go through the hassle of unlocking it. Also, I didn't want to take any vacation time dealing with finding phones/sim cards.

There is a company called Cellular Abroad that rents iphones and sim cards - do they cover Asia and has anyone used them before?

Does anyone know of a company that is reputable and I can rent a phone and get a sim card before I leave?

Thanks.
