Sarajevo - Post Report Question and Answers

Do you have any recommendations regarding mobile phones? Did you keep your home-country plan or use a local provider?

Bring an unlocked phone with you and buy a local SIM card. I have an unlimited call/text/data plan for 70KM/month or $45. - Apr 2021

You can easily buy a cellphone in Sarajevo. Cell phones from the U.S. could be "fixed" to work here, but it's not recommended because they use a different frequency here in Bosnia and the hardware ends up failing. Pay as you go cards are available. - Mar 2009


Have one, pre-paid cards are everywhere. - Dec 2008
