Cell phone in PNG!

In just the last year or so <a href=”http://www.digicelpng.com”>cell phones<a> have come to PNG.  It is great since so much of PNG is so remote.  We bought a Motorola C119 phone this week and it came with a free solar charger.  This is a great accessory in a country where the sun is plentiful and the power is not always stable.  All cell phones are on prepaid service.  Cell phones are a much cheaper alternative to landline phone long distance communications here.  We will be leaving the phone off most of the time but we have activated voice mail and it looks like we can retrieve messages for free.
