There isn't any telecommunication store located at the airport and I do not know whether there could be another store selling it. In Vienna it would not be a problem at all.

What kind of phone would you bring in? (GSM, 3G)

Is it essential to make many overseas calls to the US?

No, it's not essential to call back to the US. Thx.

I would take "bob" as they offer a good rate for domestic calls and you can easily add a data package (1GB for 4€) in case you want to use the internet on your phone.

But it is essential that your phone understands GSM on the frequencies 900 and 1800 MHz (=European GSM frequencies).

Mmm, I don't understand German, so I have no idea what they are saying. Maybe when I arrive at the airport or at the hotel, they can help me buy the kit. Thx.
