After many years, I'm about to come back to the States for about a month. I'm going to need a cell phone, so I've been investigating renting one. Renting one from here in Japan will set me back about $100 per month, plus the call rates are from $2.50 to $3.50 per minute. Wow!
I can find more reasonable US cell phone rental services online, but someone just told me that they think they even sell cheap cell phones at places like supermarkets and you can just get a prepaid card.
Can anyone verify if this is true and if so, do you know about how much they cost and what they cost to use per minute?
bye the way, big thanks to those of you who responded to my "where to eat in NC?" post
