Anyone know where to purchase an unlocked GSM multiband cell phone and pre-paid SIM card in St. Petersburg Russia? I'm wondering about availability and pricing versus buying one in US and taking it with me. Thanks.

Do you speak Russian? If you don't, I would purchase the phone here and at least try to arrange for the SIM card from the US. Even though St. Petersburg is probably the city where you are most likely to find English speakers, pretty much all business is still conducted in Russian in my experience.

You will probably get a better answer on one of the travel forums.

Don't know about phones and SIM cards. I have been to the Hermitage. if you go to St. Petersburg and don't find a way to spend two or three days at the Hermitage you'll be the worse for it.

Do it here. Verizon has always hooked me up with something that works (sometimes) from Gambia to Cambodia. I'm sure Russia would be better. HH

Thanks for the replies. Found a SIM from SimCardGlobal and a not to pricey unlocked quad band GSM phone from CompUSA that should work.
