You say $60 or $70 per week is certainly no bargain when you can get a
second-hand phone to *keep* for that kind of money and just buy a
local prepaid account readily available in lots of local places.

Why buy second hand? I just made a quick check at one of the four
Greek mobile operators and you can get a phone to keep plus some
initial call time as follows:

(all prices in Euros):
a)19,90 euros with 8 euros call time
b)14,99 euros with 6 euros call time

You have a choice of the following phones:
Alcatel O.T.153
Ericsson T290
LG L341i
Motorola C155
NEC 331i
Nokia 2650
Siemens A65

Time renewal comes in 7 and 15 euros.

Phones provided with prepaid accounts are usually blocked to the
carrier for six months. On the other hand with similar prices you can
get a second phone in Turkey and pay less than the rental or second
hand prices mentioned by other readers.
