If all you need to do is send a postcard or a letter, there’s no need to visit a post office. Pretty much any kiosk will sell you stamps, just make sure they’re the right value for what you’re sending and where. Once you’ve got your stamps licked and affixed, drop your mail in any post box. These are the small orange boxes attached to buildings around town. Don’t put your mail in the dark green boxes with round holes in the sides. Those are trash bins.


Calling within Estonia
There are no pay-phones in all of Estonia. If you wish to call inside or outside the country you’ll have to arrange to do so from a landline at your hotel or by using your mobile phone. Rest assured that the same mobile you use in Europe or the UK will also work here. If you have a lot of local calls to make on your mobile, we suggest picking up one of the many starter packages sold a supermarkets, petrol stations and R-Kiosks. The kits include a SIM card and a certain amount of calling time.
Calling other phones in Estonia
To call any Estonian number, fixed or mobile, from within the country, just dial the number as written. Estonian mobile numbers all begin with '5'.
International calls
To call Estonia from abroad, dial your country’s international access code, then Estonia’s country code, +372, then the number. To phone abroad from Estonia, dial ‘00’ then the country code and number.
To call any telephone in Estonia from a foreign mobile account, dial +372 followed by the number, as outlined before.

WiFi - free internet access

By now, most have heard that Estonia is indeed a pretty tech-savy country. In fact much of the country is blanketed in WiFi or wireless internet hotspots. From long-distance buses to cafeś, pubs and even some shops and public areas - WIFI is everywhere. For foreigners visiting Tallinn this means you'll be able to check e-mails, SKYPE with friends back home or share photos on Facebook using your Android phone, iPhone or Blackberry - free of charge. Just look for the orange and black WiFi sign and you're good to go. With all that free WiFi around, you'll also want to purchase the Tallinn In Your Pocket iPhone app available here.
