The best idea is to get the local sim-card, it will save you a lot of money.
The sim card may be purchased in any office of Megafon, Beeline and MTS- such telecom providers are located almost everywhere in the cities. There is no roaming on the entire territory of Russia, but anyway in time of purchasing the sim-card, it is better to warn the salesman that he should switch on the service.

In case of travel from US and UK, it is a good idea to take the adapter, the power sockets in Russia are of type C and F. The standard voltage is 220 V; standard frequency is 50 Hz.

Wi-Fi is everywhere: in restaurants, cafes, hotels, even in Moscow and St. Petersburg metro and buses.
