PTCHere in Belgrade; it's time to recharge. In this park near the train station; a bit of a campsite has sprung up with tents pitched everywhere.Hussein and Tarek are from Baghdad and are discussing how best to continue with a group of friends from Iraq.They have bought their bus tickets; packed their bags; there is just one thing missing.SOTTarek, Migrant"Food; we have food. The real problem is making sure that we have our phones so that we can reassure our families back home."SOTHussein, Migrant"We ask our friends for information, especially those who have already travelled ahead. Then when we are en route, to a city for example, we can use our GPS to check we have the right route."Many richer refugees and migrants have checked into hotels here with electricity a plenty.But keeping your phone charged while taking boats; buses and trains; all while sleeping rough is hard.Businesses like Goran's; where you can eat a sandwich and get some juice for your mobile, are booming.SOTGoran Andjelkovic, Cafe owner"Here, it's free. But there's always someone who thinks he's smarter than everyone else and asks for money. Some of them are migrants. I don't know who though. They buy power chords and then want 1 euro for 10 minutes of charging."SOTHussein, Migrant"There's no space here. But I'll go and ask at another cafe next door; perhaps they'll have space there!"PTCNew apps, like this one ; even allow you to use a mobile phone like a walkie talkie; even allowing you to send out an SOS at sea. But modern technology will only get you so far ; most will get in touch with a smuggler here to get them across the next border, into Hungary.
