Going to Lilongwe in ca. 5 weeks' time. Plusnet UK (my contract phoneco) have advised me they do not support roaming at all in Malawi. I have a spare paygo phone (Tesco mobile) and they have told me I can receive incoming calls from UK phones but won't be able to make outgoing calls or use data 'due to Malawian security restrictions'. Elsewhere it has been posted that a local SIM card would take a week to register (so not much use for a two week stay...). Does this all ring true? I'll likely need a functional mobile when I arrive so this is a bit of a problem...any advice welcome!
