Yeah, it's really simple. If you go to City Center you can compare prices between Carrefour and the couple of phone kiosks. There is usually a basic Nokia for something like RO 19, or a Samsung for a bit less. I think you will actually have to go to the Nawras or Omantel shops to buy a SIM though. It is easy enough to do at one of the malls. You can buy the recharge cards pretty much anywhere.
