Cell phones are very numerous in Tanzania and coverage is close to being everywhere. Because of this, pay phones are no longer available. Phones from abroad that have removable SIM cards and are not locked by the provider will be able to accept a Tanzanian SIM card. The cost for a card is approximately $1 USD. Prepaid credit is available nearly everywhere. Cell phones can be found for around $20 USD and up. Many internet cafes have SKYPE or another call service avaiable to make international calls.
