You can buy a cell phone in
Moscow, or rent one from me, or get me to buy and send you a SIM card for
your GMS standard phone.
A second-hand phone can be
procured in Moscow for about $50.
The service to buy and send you a
SIM card is also about $50.
Note: Your American phone will
not work in Russia as it used a different standard.

DATE NO MORE THAN 60 DAYS BEFORE YOUR DEPARTURE. EX MOSCOW TICKETS ARE NO
Most of my clients buy 2nd class (4 persons per compartment) tickets. 1st
class (2 persons) are almost twice as expensive. Cattle car tickets are half
the 2nd class price. Economy enthusiasts may consider local commuter trains
(na sobakakh - on the dogs in local travel slang) which will take you across
the continent for $50-80.
