Mobile telephone

The most common way to buy a mobile telephone is from a telephone company, as you can then get a contract at the same time.

Most telephone companies have shops around Copenhagen, and it can be a good idea to contact them and ask which services and prices they can offer.

It is also possible to buy a telephone with a prepaid card, which means that you do not need a contract.
