Not sure it I'm asking in the right place or not ? My daughter is going to Guam for two years with the Air force and needs cell service. The phone companies around here aren't much help. They can quote prices for service if I take my phone there but can't answer if they offer plans based there ?
Thanks Ed

I don't know about Guam specifically, but everywhere else I've been you just get a local SIM card and pop it in IF your existing phone is quad band or you can get it unlocked.

Otherwise, get a local phone and SIM.

Both "lesser developed" countries have pay as you go (buy "minutes" up front) systems since they don't have credit cards (or even banks in some cases).

HTH.
