I was looking for an international cell phone to rent for my summer 2006 trip to Romania and the prices were outrageous. After a lot of research to find the best buy, I discovered Mobal Communications’ GSM world phone (New York, NY; 888/888-9162 or www.mobal.com).

There’s one flat fee of just $49, there are no monthly charges and you OWN the cell phone. You can keep it in your desk drawer until your next international trip, and you pay only for the actual time you spend on the phone.

It gets better. In an era where text messaging has become so popular and convenient, incoming text messages are FREE with Mobal and outgoing messages cost only 80¢ (if both phones are GSM compatible). Who has time to talk on the phone anyway on a business trip or vacation? Texting is the answer!

And, I can’t forget, if you are unhappy for any reason at all, you can write to Mobal in 60 days after the purchase date and they will buy the phone back from you, no questions asked.
