Buying a cellular phone in Russia is not cheap. Airtime isn't a bargain either. Yet you
might need a cellular phone for business. Check if your local cellular phone company has a
roaming agreement with Russia or St. Petersburg. If it does, you might be able to use your
own cell phone. Otherwise, you will have to rent one at a sky-high price or buy it from
one of St. Petersburg providers.
St. Petersburg's cellular service providers are:
Delta Telecom (NMT 450)
