Cell Phone in Israel
You can get a local plan on your own with a local cell phone provider but we recommend you use "Israel Phones” – a company that provides special packages for students in Israel with great rates and unlimited international calling. They also provide a pickup service at the Airport when you land and you can rent a phone or just a sim card.
