    • Cell phone.

      by J45C Online Now Jan 9, 2017 at 7:01 PM

      I happened to have a Samsung Galaxy S3 cell phone (USA) that I plan to travel to India with. I have heard that the frequencies used by Indian carriers for GSM-2, 3 may be different from the ones supported by Samsung S3.
      Would there be someone who is using a Samsung Galaxy S3 cell phone in India and knows that it works. Thanks.

    • Getting a sim card for a cell phone.

      by J45C Online Now Jan 6, 2017 at 8:26 AM

      I am wondering how easy/difficult would it be to get a sim card, perhaps at the Mumbai airport itself. I have all the necessary id's such as my North American passport, Driver's license, Credit card. Having access to a phone would be a definite asset. Any information in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    • Availability of Indian currency.

      by J45C Online Now Jan 4, 2017 at 6:22 PM

      I plan to visit India for a three week period. I realize there is a currency crunch at this time (Jan. 4th 2017 today) in India. I am wondering if ATM machines in Mumbai have started dispensing out the cash? I have a couple of USA credit cards and a US Bank ATM card. Will it be a grim situation for me? I also have a couple of hundred US Dollars in cash with me. Any suggestion (short of don't come) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      I would like to consider using the local rail network mainly on the harbour line.

      Is it safe for tourists?

      Is it overcrowded after 11am?

      Are station signs in the roman alphabet?

      Is it difficult/easy to use?

      Can tickets be bought easily from stations like Andheri east and CST?

      Thanks
