Mobiles/cell phones are very widely used here in Iceland, everybody has got at least one. It came as a surprise to me when visiting Canada that not everybody had a cell phone, here it is like an extension of Icelanders and I never leave the house without my cell phone. The Icelandic nation is gadget crazy and iPhone 5 is amongst the most popular mobile phones here.
It might be a good idea to get yourself an Icelandic SIM card when visiting. We have Frelsi, which is a pre-paid service. And we have 4 phone companies Vodafone, Nova, SÝminn and Tal which recently emerged with 365 Milar.
I add a photos from the brochure in the WOW airplanes, but the same offer is valid with Icelandair as well. One can buy a basic mobile phone with an Icelandic SIM-card from SÝminn and a Voucher for ISK 1.000 for only ISK 4.990 aboard the plane. One can also buy just the SIM-card from SÝminn with a Voucher for ISK 2.000 - for only ISK 2.000.
I recommend this, especially if one wants to stay connected with a VT-member here in Iceland (that would be me). I had problems when I met up with VT-members from the USA and Canada as we sent SMS which didn┤t get delivered.
To look up numbers here in Iceland the most widely used link is ja.is where you can find good street-maps as well. Of course we have a phone-directory as well where people are listed by their first name, but I solely use ja.is to find phone-numbers. And 118 and 1818 are the numbers for assistance in looking up people or addresses.
