My boyfriend and I are hiking the hiker's Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt from September 20-30. I have read in several places that it is a good idea to have a cell phone on this hike, in order to call ahead and make and confirm reservations in the huts for each night. However, cell phones from the United States don't usually work in other countries.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a simple and inexpensive way to have a working cell phone during our days on the hike? Perhaps a cheap phone we buy in Switzerland, or something we get in the US before we leave?
