Is a European tri-band mobile phone ok in Bolivia?See the subject.
Does it work properly?
Or I need something else (e.g. quadri-band phone and/or local sim)?

3You will need to buy a different SIM card for each country you visit. I had to get a local to register my phone in Bolivia (using the company viva, others may be different). SIM's can be purchased all over the place and only cost $1.50 including some credit. Calls/SMS are cheap.

Let me understand better.
Why do you advise buying a Bolivian SIM card?
1) the European SIM card will not work at all;
2) the European SIM card will work properly, but it will be more (or much more, for local calling)costly.
What I need is calling home (in Europe) to know if everything is ok there.
I don't need long calling for business puropose or so.

Asking too much. Nothing works properly in Bolivia but it works

8Your European SIM card will (propably) work but for local calls it's too expensive. For calling to Europe you will have to use you European SIM card which might be expensive too (search for details at your provider).
But in the big cities you are likely to find at place where you can make cheap calls to Europe (maybe something like one dollar for 10 minutes).
