Is it worth taking a mobile phone to Egypt? What is the coverage like? How about Jordan?
Phone coverage is all over egypt - apart from a couple of black spots in desert areas.
Mobile phones are all a part of the new Egyptian culture, and everyone loves to use them !
Good coverage. When I am abroad I get roaming and then just send messages, as phoning costs too much !
Thank you cairowendy and egyptian goddess. I just want to use my phone to keep in touch with family now and then. And yes, I agree, messages are the way to go.
It may be worthwhile buying an Egyptian sim card, they can be picked up easy enough.
