Like many foreigners, we all came over with our mobile phones from our home countries. Once we have decided how long we want and can stay in beautiful Belgrade, we must decide what to do about a mobile phone.
Now, everyone has different needs. Such a decision can be based on many factors such as our duration here in Belgrade, whether a job is offering a phone, etc. So here are some pros and cons you need to look into when it comes to mobile phones here in Belgrade.
First, you have three service providers here in Serbia: Telenor, Vip, and MTS. One thing you'll have to look into if you want postpaid is whether you can actually get a contract. I know Telenor requires Serbian ID to get a contract. However, if you have a visa (which I didn't at the time of setting up my plan with them) they may allow you to do so. This is the biggest factor for any foreigner when it comes to deciding prepaid or postpaid.
Aside from this, this next thing to consider is how long will you be here in Serbia. If you are going to be here only a few months, then you should aim for prepaid. Prepaid is very convenient in this manner. You should been here more than a year to consider postpaid phones.
However, if you don't plan on talking much or maybe you text more than anything, prepaid could be what is best for you. Also, if your Serbian is barely working or non-existent then prepaid is definitely your best option. With prepaid you can find any of the teller machines to place credits on your phone. Many of these machines offer instructions in several languages like Serbian, English, and German. Possible even more.
Also, if you come over with your own phone (instead of purchasing something here in Serbia) then you'll more than likely need it unlocked if it is a provider specific phone like AT&T's iPhone.
I have dealt with MTS and Telenor. I prefer Telenor, honestly. But it all depends on your needs and wants in a phone service.
In the end, all that matters are your needs are met and you enjoy your time here in Belgrade and in Serbia in general. The last thing you need is a finicky phone ruining your time here.
