Mobile service providers

Rest assured that the same GSM mobile you use in Europe or the UK will also work here. To get the best deal on roaming charges, check with your provider at home to see which Estonian network they’re partnered with, and set your network selection accordingly.
Better still, you can avoid the roaming question entirely by getting a local Estonian number. All you have to do is buy a starter kit, (see Prepaid mobile calling). Alternatively, if you have an Estonian address, you can sign a contract with one of the networks listed here:

Prepaid mobile calling

Now that there aren't any more public payphones in Estonia, if you want to make a call inside the country or to back home you have a few options. You can use your own mobile carrier for some pretty hefty roaming rates, you can use the phone in your hotel room - also for a small fortune and not so convenient, or you can buy one of the many inexpensive, prepaid starter packages on the market. There are quite a few available in Estonia, here we have listed the major players. These kits are available in most supermarkets, R-Kiosk, Statoil fuelling stations, the post office, from the service provider themselves and can be topped-up online or at the point of purchase. Each listing also states the service provider. See individual websites for further information, SMS prices, web browsing etc.
