Buy one, look on the internet to find out how to unlock it for FREE, and just get a card here when you decide what company you want to use.

The cost of even the simplest mobile in Brasil is quite shocking.RioLondoner2010-07-26 09:16:15 July 25, 2006 at 1:37 pm #150400 Fergus MartinMember Buy a cheapo pirated phone here. That way when it gets stolen you won’t care as much. July 25, 2006 at 2:00 pm #150405 irishvanMember I always buy them on ebay when i’m in the US and bring them back. Also a good idea if you want to make some extra money: buy there, sell here. July 22, 2010 at 9:14 pm #17134 TahniocaParticipant Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
