Can I use my cell phone in China? Check with your cell phone provider before coming to China. Several US plans now allow you to receive and make calls on your cell phone. You are able to make and receive international phone calls from the Centre, it is best if you bring along a prepaid calling card. If you bring your own laptop, you can use our wireless Internet for free in your room and in the Centre. Voice over IP programs such as Skype work just fine. We also have one computer in the Centre to use for free. You can receive mail at the Centre.
