Prepaid Cell Phone - Shannon Airport?

Jump to last reply

When I travel, I do not like using my cell phone. I don't want the messages, texts, facebook, email and all that from home to distract me. I literally aim to get away from it all.

As my trip to Ireland gets very close, however, I (and my wife, especially) am feeling like a cell phone is a very good idea. Primarily, if we have an issue with the rental car if we drive around the country, being able to call the number will be nice. Also, I am meeting up with some relatives who live there that would like being able to call me, and not just at the hotels.

I have a Driod from Verizon. I brought it in today to ask about putting a sim card in it when I get to Ireland. Problem! My Drioid X doesn't have a sim card that can be changed in and out, and it is not worldwide capable.

They said I can get a "prepaid phone" in Ireland that will suit my needs. Is this true? I am flying into Shannon Airport. Are there booths with prepaid or rental phones I can get? If so, what do I look for. If not, is there a place near the airport I can get one?

Thanks for your help!
