I've asked this before but as we're getting close, I thought I might ask again.

Who's going? And if you're interested in keeping this lonely Belgian company for a while, PM me :) I'm going on Tuesday and Wednesday (first week).

I am going from the first Thursday, but I will try to make it for one of the first days for a night session. For those who will come from afar and won't be able to access Internet while visiting, to meet we need some way of communication.

You're right, we need to find a way. But my cell phone doesn't work in the US and I can't get a reloadable card in the US either as they use a different system. I'll look for cyber cafés though, so I should be able to check my mails and wtaworld.

Not generally true. USA now has an excellent GSM coverage in cities ( along with dominant in UuSA CDMA ), and definitely in Queens. So your phone _will_ work, I though am not sure about a cost. But I think you can buy a prepaid SIM card here. But that would mean a different number, I guess..

That's exactly what I want, a prepaid SIM card. I've been asking a couple of American friends about it but they said I probably wouldn't find it.

I'll be there tomorrow!!! Through this friday and then the first three days of the main draw. If you want to know where I'll be, I will be the one cheering way too loudly for Maureen Drake, Lucie Ahl and Cory Ann Avants lol.

It is possible, but because of the limited market for that, it is not that cheap, so I am not sure that is something what you want. Which day are you arriving ( from Belgium )?


It would probably be easier if you have the phone numbers of all you would want to meet and buy a cheap phone card that you could use in any of the payphones at USO ( I believe, there are quite few of them there ).
