(Telecoms) Modernity and How to Handle It

Three years ago, I tried to buy a US cellphone for a New York visit, and I couldn't use my credit card, and in the end, I couldn't even use a friend's credit card, because they needed to verify me, and then I had to go to a store when I got there. Not good.

Last year, I bought one with my Paypal account, and my friends charged it for me before I arrived.

Now, a friend is coming from Israel for a few weeks, and needs a PAYG mobile. But her international credit card didn't work. So I bought it for her, had it shipped to her parents' address, and she sent me Amazon vouchers.

World's a village.

I love modernity. I love gaming the system, too.
