As someone posted on the Living in Indonesia forum, almost every phone in Indonesia is unlocked and can use any sim card. Most Iphones go for between 6M and 7M Rp. Look for them online at Bhinneka or try some of the handphone shops in Taman Anggrek and Ambassador Mall.

Recent years have seen enormous development in the infrastructure and usage of cellular telephones (cell phones) in Indonesia, known in Indonesia as hand phones (or even more correctly, ponsel in Bahasa Indonesia, which is short for telepon seluler, I believe.) Many companies in Indonesia provide hand phones for their managers. They may also pay part of your phone bill, for example paying the first Rp 200,000 in monthly charges. If your work keeps you out of the office a lot, you may want to ask your firm if they will provide you with a hand phone.

A wide variety of hand phones are available for purchase in Indonesia. Internationally known brands predominate the market. The latest models with all the new features are available in Indonesia. Often a new model will be launched in Asia before it is available in the west. The major brand names have dealers/distributors who handle the sales of their phones in Indonesia. Dealers/distributors have kiosks or shops in the major malls or sell their wares through counters in electronics goods stores. Most of the major international brands have customer support stores in many areas of the city to provide help and training on how to use the features of their phones. In Jakarta, ITC Roxy Mas is currently considered the center for handphone sales as the entire building is occupied with hand phone dealers. Prices range from Rp 1.0 juta to Rp 11 juta, with VirTU models made from Platinum and precious metals are also available starting at Rp 30 million (exchange rate Rp 9,100/US$1.00 - January 2005).

As Trendy Gadget pointed out last year (2007): "Indonesia is one of the biggest cellphones market in Asia. And in Jakarta, the biggest cellphone center located at ITC Roxy Mas, West jakarta. Most of people there choose to shop cellphone (indonesian: ponsel) at Roxy Mas because usually lower prices compared to other places. And most of local mobile magazine always take ITC Roxy Mas as barometer of cellphone prices..."

Some hand phones purchased abroad will work in Indonesia, as long as you subscribe to the operator that utilizes that phone system in Indonesia. For example, if you own a GSM phone, you can subscribe to Telkomsel, Excelcomindo or Satelindo. Changing your phone number is as simple as buying a new kartu telepon or chip card from your Indonesian operator. Some older chips will not necessarily work in newer model phones and visa versa. With the advancement of technology and the capabilities on the newer phones, they are requiring a more advanced chip to operate them. Hand phones purchased in Indonesia will only work abroad if they are capable of using the operating system in that country. This is a factor to consider if you do a lot of traveling and want to use your Indonesian hand phone on your trips. Top of the line hand phones (and operators) include many practical features: frequently called phone number list voice mail box - to leave messages call diverting and call waiting screening of calls customized phone ring tones cameras video clips and much more ... A major factor in the hand phone you choose is the life of the battery. The best batteries are Li-Ion. Choose a hand phone that has a battery that is good for up to 5 to 8 hours of usage. Also ask the dealer how long it will take to recharge the battery when it runs down. Better phones take only 1 to 2 hours to recharge. For people that spend a lot of time in their car a charger that plugs into the cigarette lighter of the car is a very helpful accessory.
