Do I need to buy a new mobile phone to use in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia?

Or can I use my old phone? Will it work there? Can I just buy a prepaid sim card to use with my old phone? Also, what are the rates in calling overseas to countries like the US and Canada? I'd appreciate your help. Thanks.

Depends on the GSM Phone you have.. maybe it is locked to your home country network. In that case, you can go on the net and look for the unlocking code.. or get it unlocked... All GSM phones work in KSA... Fortunately, in India, wher I am based, any phone can be unlocked for almost nothing...
