Have a look at the newsagents at the airport and in the cbd area you should be able to get one.

Also have a look at Global Gossip - they have phone booths and do cheap rates:

All convenience stores and Asian supermarkets/grocery stores as well as many tobaccanists will have heaps of posters in their windows for dozens of different calling cards. Line quality varies enormously - often it's pot luck. If you can find "Lite" cards, they're not bad. The rates aren't the very cheapest, but call quality is better than most.

My husband has just returned from Kazakhstan and he purchased a travelsim sim card from the local post office which he used to phone us back in Australia while he was away. Worked brilliantly and the customer service was fantastic, as we had a couple of hickups initially. Here is the website if you are interested. By the way he said the mobile coverage in Kazakhstan was heaps better than what we have in Australia!
