It’s said that the biggest fear one has it that of public peaking. For me, my biggest fear is not having cellular service, and not being able to connect while on the go.

So, how does one connect while in Denmark

Some quick tips to staying connected while on the go:
Phone Bring your own unlocked GSM phone to make calls. Prepaid SIM cards are available at most shops and international calling can be reasonably priced. Any prepaid cr generally only valid for calls made in Denmark, but can be purchased in small amounts to avoid waste when you leave. Data access on prepaid cards is very expensive as the 4 major Danish providershave locked out the monthly subscription market that include generous data allowances to Danish resident holders only; a rule enforced by local government.

International collect calls are not allowed from phone booths, which are all ran by the TDC company. You should be able to make international call with the prepaid SIM cards anyways. Denmark’s international phone country code is 45. The prefix for international dialing is “00” or ‘+’ (on a mobile phone). When calling a Danish company expect to be connected directly to a Danish phone operator or digital system in Danish; if you wait till the end of the introduction and available options there’s usually a separate English option, otherwise hit #.
