Cellular service

Hi, I will be coming to live in Tbilisi for a few months and was wondering what is the best way to have cell phone service to call back to the U.S. I currently have T-mobile and they don't have service available there.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

There'll be roaming; you phone will work with some other operator who will bill t-mobile, who will then bill you for this (usually exorbitantly, so be careful!). I'm not sure about the US, but the mobile phone coverage is substantially better than the UK, in this part of the world.

You could also get a local sim card:

These two operators have several branded-shops in the city. If you're going to be making a lot of international calls, you should get an international sim-card, you can get these at independent phone shops and top them up at booths located randomly all over.

They look like this:

The city centre has free wi-fi throughout: 'tbilisi loves you', but it seems to get horribly overloaded in the more affluent areas, where many people have smart-phones and tablets.
