I will be in Ireland in a month and am looking into purchasing a cheap, pre-paid cell phone. I'd like to have it for any emergency calls, some internal calls (to call ahead to B&B's, tour operators, etc.), and possibly some calls back to the US.
I've scoured the forums, and it looks like the majority of recommendations are for phones thru Tesco. There's a 10 euro one - will that one work for both calls inter-Ireland and to the US? Our itinerary also includes Northern Ireland so I need it to work there as well.
I'm getting a little lost with all of the band-width talk as well. Apparently I need a quad-band phone to make calls within Ireland and then from Ireland to the US. I have an iPhone 5s thru AT&T...anyone know if it's a quad-band phone? I'll call AT&T to confirm, but am just curious. :)
Thanks in advance for any help!!
