I will be spending a week in Dresden and would like to be able to call home to the US. My current US cell phone cannot be used internationally and I am not ready to upgrade my current (non-smart) phone here.
Would my best bet be to purchase an inexpensive cell phone once arriving in Germany? I've been investigating rental services for international phones here in the US (example: OneSimCard.com) but the charges are extravagant, especially since I will now need expedited shipping (leaving this Friday).
I will be arriving in Dresden on Saturday. Are there local shops that can help me?
(note: I will have an older iPod touch with me that I can use for text messaging over Wi-Fi....is there an abundance of free WiFi around Dresden?) Will also post this question in the Dresden-specific forum.
Thanks so much!
