I was expecting to arrive in a communication nirvana. Dirt cheap, ubiquitous wireless access of all sorts. I figured they’d be giving away data cards and other wireless devices by the roadside. “Welcome to wireless utopia”.
I was sadly disappointed.
You pay to receive calls on your cell phone (mobile), long distance calling (outside the immediate area) costs a fortune, you pay $30 to $60 just to buy a SIM card. It’s outrageously expensive. Bah.
