There are several internet cafes in the city center, mostly on Ben Yehuda and King George. Other than that, you’ll be hard pressed to find a café that doesn’t offer free Wi-Fi, so if you’re travelling with a laptop or smartphone you’ll have no problem getting online whenever you’re up for it.
The country-code for Israel is 972. Israeli area codes commence with a zero (e.g. 03-xxx-xxxx), so if you calling Israel from overseas, drop the zero (i.e. +972-3-xxx-xxxx).
If your U.S. cell-phone and/or handheld wireless device is programmed for international service, it will work automatically in Israel. Alternatively, cell-phones can be rented as soon as you arrive in Israel.
There are public phones throughout Tel Aviv. You’ll need to buy a “Telecart” magnetic card to use them: they’re readily available at newsstands, supermarkets, post offices or at your hotel front desk.
Post offices are everywhere, and are the ideal place to buy stamps, mail letters or packages. Most hotels’ front desks or concierges have stamps too.
