POM Situation!

Travelling to PNG (POM) over the weekend and need to know the atmosphere given (I believe) a curfew in place.
1. Any social life given the restrictive curfew timings?
2. Any special curfew parties going on (I remember back in '96/97??, the Airways had weekend curfew busters that stayed on till 5am.
3. Is there a liquor ban in place so I can bring in a few cartons from the Singapore duty free.
4. Can I purchase a "sim card" for my mobile phone whilst there?

Cheers

Cool Well....

Liquor ban ???? I don't think so !!! No liquor ban............curfew starts at midnight.............heaps of curfew busters around the city........mostly private (it's who you know).............otherwise take your pick !!!

There is no SIM card in here, as we are still 100000 years behind on the mobile technology, we are still using analog system (AMPS?)

If you want to bring an analog phone, it has to be reprogrammed by Cellnet or Siule Electronics for K50, but you also need to subscribe for a number etc....too much hassle for just a week's thing. If really desperate for mobile phone, you can rent one maybe, or borrow mine (I never used mine)

You might wanna check the curfew schedule too

cheers

GLG,
Thanx very much for the info. If there's any private party you know of, I'm in so pls invite me (no, quite seriously!).

MP,
The digital system that was supposed to have arrived last August is not there yet? I wouldn't mind borrowing yours (at a cost of course) fm 20/7/01 to 30/7/01 whilst I'm incountry.

Regards, wantok!

Effiz, I guess your trip in Europe went well. I was just in the land of the unexpected during the height of the 'unrest' and all was not too bad. It has quietened down somewhat (as quiet as POM can be), so getting around town should be okay.
You will be glad to know that Matlock and Hommo are putting the 235 to good use.
Lamana is still going strong with Mombi at the helm if you're thirsty.
Forget the phone, the rates are too high for the service and the limited coverage.
Catch you on the rebound.
