What is the best SIM card for Romania?


in Romania by @rmeskill | 5yr  | 6 comments

I live in Budapest but have started traveling around a lot through Central/Eastern Europe as a nomad, but I need a local SIM to work-does anyone have any suggestions/advice for the best SIM for Romania? Preferably with lots of data and the option to tether?

Admin note: post edited to confirm with community guidelines.

Iโ€™m a Cosmote fan. Incredible prices and customer service.

I was turned on to them in Greece, and loved the service. When I saw RO had Cosmote, I signed up. Love it.

Thumbs up for Orange - it has great 4G coverage, allows tethering, no other restrictions. Vodafone blocks Skype and everything VOIP, donโ€™t know about tethering but being Vodafone (aka shitty with customers) it wouldnโ€™t be a surprise to me if they block it. The other providers are not great.

Somehow Iโ€™d never heard of that prepaid sim card wiki-quite useful-cheers!

According to the site, it seems Vodafone has tethering but doesnโ€™t mention anything about Orange. Unless anyone else has any confirmation that Orange allows tethering I guess Iโ€™ll just go with Vodafone.

I used orange RO; embarrassingly, I canโ€™t remember if the speed was HSPA+ or 4G, but it was perfectly adequate in any case. It was around EUR10 for a couple gigabytes of data. I didnโ€™t try to tether, because my apartment in a smaller town had 30Mbps down anywaysโ€“speeds in Bucharest are even faster. I heard from locals that orange and Vodafone have quite similar speeds, coverage, and pricing.

You can always check the prepaid sim wikia (Google [prepaid sim card wiki] and you should be able to find it), which is usually pretty up-to-date.

Where should I set up my company as a remote worker?


by @beloruchka | 5d 5 days ago | 7 comments

Iโ€™m looking for any recommendations for services or people others have used to get answers on the best place to set up their businesses based on their personal circumstances.

Leaning towards Singapore after a ton of research, but would really like some concrete advice before jumping in.

Appreciate it!

What's the best thing to do with your phone/ your phone number when travelling?


in Poland by @davda1546 | 14d 14 days ago | 6 comments

Hey, hope everyone is well!

We're leaving in a month to go travelling. Our first destination is still to be confirmed, but will likely be Poland or Slovakia. We will be moving around every month or two to different destinations.

The question we have is: what do people do with phones/ phone numbers when hopping from country to country? Ideally we'd just like one number for the whole trip (even better, the number we already have) wherever we go, rather than getting new SIMs with different numbers.

This is just so it's easier to keep in contact with family/ clients/ etc.

SIM to use in Eastern Europe


by @itinerantdev | 1yr 1 year ago | 6 comments

Over the next few weeks Iโ€™m visiting:

  • Prague 4 days
  • Bratislava 12 days
  • Berlin 7 days
  • Budapest 60 days

I am British and was assuming I would use my giff gaff sim as that has free EU roaming.

But I have been in Mexico for six weeks and giff gaff emailed and said if I didnโ€™t use my sim in the UK soon they would start charging their normal expensive roaming rates.

Soโ€ฆ Can anyone recommend a pre-pay data only sim/package I can use in all of these countries? Ideally which I can pick up in Prague?

Are there cards similar to the APEC Business Travel Card that Europeans are eligible for?


by @dpt | 3yr 3 years ago | 3 comments

I heard from an American friend that he has several cards similar to the APEC Business Travel Card (link to Wikipedia ) that allow him to get priority treatment at immigration line in certain countries.
I was very intrigued and quickly checked up on the card, but it seems to be only available to citizens of APEC-member nations.

I was wondering if anyone here uses such cards, what your experiences with them are (specifically, Iโ€™m interested in cards available for Europeans/Germans).

Is a 4G sim device in addition to phone advisable in SE Asia?


by @anderkd | 4yr 3 years ago | 4 comments

Iโ€™m planning a visit to Chiang Mai and Bali starting in April. I have a Google Nexus which has worked flawlessly in Mexico at least. Assuming it will work just as well in CM and Bali? If I decide not to work in a coworking space, but rather Airbnb w/wifi and/or Coffee shops wifi, would a dedicated 4g sim card device be worth spening $75 USD to purchase, plus local sim, plus potential SIM hassle, or just rely on Nexus hotspot + airbnb and coffee shop Wifi?

How do you get a SIM card (and data plan) in Colombia if you don't know Spanish


in Colombia by @balindsieber | 4yr 3 years ago | 2 comments

I just arrived to Medellin and did not anticipate that no one would speak any english at all. (Iโ€™m used to Asia where everyone knows the basics)

I need a SIM card, I found a place at the mall where they sell them, but itโ€™s not a simple transaction and I donโ€™t speak Spanish.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Are there towns similar to Boulder or Portland in Europe?


in Portland, United States by @j0hnlucas | 5yr 4 years ago | 17 comments

Small towns with:

  1. beautiful nature (mountains or sea)
  2. progressive (clean energy, digital, social justice, etc)
  3. laid back attitude
  4. affordable
  5. good startup community
    It seems to me that if 2 and 5 then itโ€™s hard to have 1 and 3. e.g. Berlin for startups is too big, not great nature, a bit too cold. Am I asking too much? :smile:

Should I buy a SIM card for a country before getting there?


by @idrisraja | 5yr 4 years ago | 7 comments

Does anyone know of a service where I can buy SIM cards for countries before actually getting to the country? My mobile coverage doesnโ€™t work most places out of the US (or itโ€™s an exorbitant cost). I just want to land in the country, and pop in a SIM card right at the airport.
