Best options for mostly local cell phone use while in Malta?

Jump to last reply

I've read enough so far on other threads to see that I should buy an inexpensive unlocked quad-band GSM cell phone and then find a Sim card for it, either before my trip or after I arrive in Malta from the USA. Malta has 3 options as far as I know---Vodafone, Go, and Melita. I will be in Malta for 2 weeks, and will use the phone minimally--just voice calls & no texting-- quick local calls to make reservations, get info, etc. If an emergency at home, however, I need to know that I will not pay a fortune for an incoming call from the USA, or for my returning call to the USA.

Can anyone help me with recommendations? I'm finding the websites to be a little confusing as I'm techno-challenged.....

Thanks in advance for any help offered!
