Note: I do not speak a word of Chinese and I was able to move around the country with a Rough Guide book with relative ease. I did not have cell phone access unless I was in a hotel or train station where free WiFi was available. If I could do it all again, I would have spent some time learning some basic Chinese words and phrases. The one term I learned quickly and used a lot was, "Xièxiè" which means "thank you". Kind of sounds like "shea she", although I would recommend listening to a native saying it to get the idea.
