evanpetty initially posted:
I'm moving to Kampala in January and I'm wondering what the best way is to handle my cell phone situation. I have read about the popularity of phones in Africa. All I hope to have with a cell phone is a device that can communicate locally and be used to occasionally call (or text) the United States. If I could bring the phone into the US and use it there while I'm back for extended breaks, that's a bonus. Does anyone have some good advice for what I should think about doing? I'm pretty technologically inept so it all helps! Thanks very much...

You get lot of unlocked phones from US and UK at 50% price. SIM card is very cheap. But local calls expensive. When you go you can take back the phone and use there.

go ahead and bring any unlocked iPhone and it should work perfectly in Uganda and USA, what you will do when you get to Uganda is just get a simcard chip and thats all.

roljaer replied to the thread Shipping possessions, then getting them on the Uganda forum:
Menjohn initially posted:
Has anyone had trouble shipping personal items into Uganda? I shipped 2 groups of boxes, one arriving in Aug and the other in Sept. I still cannot get them. Should I have them shipped back to the states to my daughters' and forget it or where can I go to get them released? It is all old things I had at the old house...I mean really, I bought the pots and pans in 1974... Anyone else had trouble? I filled out an EIN form and here a TIN form....Any information will be great. I just didn't want to have to replace things I already had...but it looks like I will have to... Thank you for your help.

Do that..go to bollore physically..in uganda nothing can ever be done on emails..trust me yul figure out a solution..but am stilll confused about your shipping method..bse I know once yu ship an item there must be a bill of lading showin where and what time your items will arrive at a certain point of pickup. Or if you use usps or dhl still you know wea ur item is at a certain time and atleast they r accountable. cheers
Menjohn replied most recently with:
Bollare keeps wanting receipts for the things, but some are 40 years old, also family photos and old books, research papers, etc. I have a TIN and filled out EIN forms on both shipments. I am not sure where the boxes are...they have never told me any real useful information, other than saying they were in Kenya, then headed for the border, then that they are here in Kampala ...somewhere. Now the latest email is that I am supposed to go to their office, and bring what ever I have (that I have sent them 3 times) plus the passport, which is currently at Immigration for the work permit. I should have just donated it all to goodwill/salvation army...haha. Thanks for the response.

My wife and I are moving to Gulu in February of 2015. We are looking for a house or apartment with good security in Gulu, Uganda. It would be good to be close to an expat community (if one exists).

Hello! Just read a post about a house in Gulu...jump to this address and check messages of the 13th October. Hope it will help. Regards! Fanny *HOUSE FOR RENT IN GULU - SENIOR QUARTERS** My compound-mates have left Gulu & their great house is up for grabs. I live in the other house on the compound & am hoping to find some new neighbours to move in & take over! The house is 3 bed/2 bath with fully equipped kitchen, western-style bathrooms, a very big living & dining room, porch, plants/herbs/garden, hot water heaters & gorgeous compound (lots of trees) shared with 1 other house (mine!). Generator, water tanks (I've never run out of water in 15 months of living there), guards, and gardener are already existent/installed. The cleaner Helen is lovely & would like to stay working at the house if possible. They wrote that their rent is $850 USD a month, but knowing that I am paying less than that for a bigger house, it's possible the landlord is open to a bit of negotiation. Please call or write an email if interested. The house is located near Dove's Nest Guesthouse on the same road as Larem Guesthouse & Save the Children.
