We have done pretty much things already. The next thing we will take care is to get each one of us a new phone. I didn’t have phone back there in Michigan because I didn’t need it there anyway, but I will need it here because we will both be working and be away from the house. For myself, I would like to have an iPhone.
Most iPhones (here in the US, anyway) are "locked" to a particular network. Should you want to use your iPhone with another GSM carrier, you need to unlock it. Unlocking lets you place calls with any GSM carrier by inserting different Subscriber Identity Modules (SIMs) into the phone. Normally these SIMs from unapproved carriers won't work. When your iPhone is unlocked, just buy a local GSM-compatible SIM, place it in your phone, and make your calls.
But to save trouble, I will lead you to the site that I just found; StarMobileShop.com. It is one of the largest Internet resellers of brand name Telecommunication products and consumer electronics products. They are the leading source of Unlocked mobile phones . For more information, just clicked on the highlighted words and it will lead you to their website.
