We won't be going through this section in detail in the tutorial.  We'll be building a sample site with a lot of this thinking already done. But if you want to use your own sample content, have a think about these things and come prepared!
+
* No store in Airport -- free SIM cards are available on the Airbus
 +
* SIM sizes: SIM+MicroSIM, and NanoSIM.
 +
* GSM (2G) 900 / 1800
 +
* UMTS (3G) 900 / 2100
  
Or if you want to choose your own dummy content, rather than use the samples provided... here's some fun sites to peruse.

=== Purpose ===

**Note**: Their IVR doesn't update with your current balance while you're still on the line -- the balance is from when you started the call.  So you top up your account, and then you get told that you have "0 Dollars"...

What job will this site have?

* UMTS (3G) 850 / 2100
* sell stuff?
+
* GSM NOT AVAILABLE
* build a community?
+
* documentation?
+
* record an event?

'''Note''' Skinny also does a competitive package, with $4 for a sim that comes loaded with calling time (within ANZ), texts and mobile data.

* Optus post-paid mobiles allegedly have a $10/day travel pack option which can be activated online, giving unlimited talk and SMS plus 50MB data/day.  This is markedly (exponentially?) cheaper than the standard roaming rate.  See http://www.optus.com.au/shop/mobilephones/international-roaming/postpaid#add-roaming for details, or http://www.optus.com.au/shop/mobilephones/international-roaming/data-roaming#add-roaming if you only want data and don't care about talk/SMS.
