Nay. If the host wants to arrange this, fine. But some countries have strange laws about this. Some phones work on some networks, but not on others. 

In Orlando, I found out that my phone would work on the Verizon network, but not AT&T. If the booth sold AT&T sims, we could have a nice, big discussion about why we didn't have Verizon and how I've wasted $X for a card that doesn't work.
