Last time I went to Vanuatu I bought a phone card from the PV airport. This was great for the local calls I needed to make. But calling Australia became a very upsetting problem as I was staying in accommodation that did not had IDD phones (except for the short time I spent at LeLagon). Public phones seemed to be for local calls only. Am I missing something? Is there somewhere else to make IDD calss? I will be spending time in Port Vila, Nguna Island and North East Efate.
This time I am wondering whether to arrange global roaming on my mobile phone. I would need to buy a new phone, but that's OK. I would prefer to not enter into a post paid plan unless I have to.
I guess what I am wondering is...What does everyone else do to make calls?
A phone store person suggested I buy a sim card when I arrive. I am very dumb on this topic. ie. What sort of phone I need.... where to buy a sim...how does the system work...is there a cheaper way than $7 or $10 AUD?
Absolutely any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
