What is the best way for communication in Argentina? Our Droids won't work there. What about purchasing a disposable phone when we arrive?
Do you mean you have Android OS phones...? If so, as long as they are unlocked and can use a SIM card from any carrier, they should work here in Argentina.
Else, buying a cheap phone is of course an option... or some folks just use one of the various VOIP options and WiFi.
how difficult is it to purchase a sims card for an unlocked phone? I hear one must have an argentine identification card to purchase one? How to get around it?
No, you do not need an Argentine ID card; the companies will use your Passport for ID.
It tends to take a bit of time, but it works pretty easily and well. We have been buying SIM Cards from Moviestar for years. You go to a Moviestar or Personal Office and they will sell you the card, install it and show you how to buy minutes - at a kiosko and/or on line. If you don't speak Spanish reasonably well, ask for someone who speaks English...
