Default 1 Week in Ireland and 1 in Slovakia - 15-07-2008, 20:41

I'm totally lost on SIMs, being from the USA.

I ordered a Moto Quad phone on line. Now I'm confused on the SIMs options. Are roaming fees above and beyond other fees? There is a section on the Forum under National Operators for international calls and one for international roamings. Do I add these 2 together?

I'll be in Ireland for a week and Slovakia for a week. Meteor looks like an OK option, but they aren't in Slovakia. I Orange and O2 are in both places but they seem more expensive(?)

My wife travels to France about once a year, but I can worry about that later.

Is it better to order a card here or get one in Ireland? I notice that Boot's N' All has a Meteor offer, but I haven't called them.

First of all, here are the offers:
- Ireland
- Slovakia

On those pages you will find also roaming rates, when available.
BTW I would buy an Irish card and a Slovakian card, so you won't pay any roaming fee. And buy them in Ireland and in Slovakia, it's much cheaper and very easy and straightforward.
