Question on unlocked phone and SIM card for Austria and Czech Republic

Jump to last reply

I will be traveling to Austria and the Czech Republic in a couple of weeks and need a cell phone while there for emergencies, calling restaurants, and calling hotels, I don't need data (but if it is super cheap I would probably use it). I do not have a GSM phone nor do I want to keep my U.S. number for the trip.

It seems like purchasing an unlocked GSM phone and SIM card(s) is the least expensive option. Do folks agree?

What are folks' experiences with SIM cards?
-Should I buy an international card that works throughout Europe? Or a separate card for Austria and the Czech Republic?
-Is it cheaper to buy the cards online or once I arrive?
-Where do I buy SIM cards in Austria and the Czech Republic and how much should I expect them to cost?

For the phone it looks like I can buy a bare-bones model for ~$30 at amazon or newegg. Is there any reason those phones shouldn't work?

Thanks!
