cell phone service and internet in Khartoum

coming to Khartoum in July Protected content want to know about cell service and internet.

phones: was advised to bring over an unlocked GSM 900/ Protected content buy sim cards there. Will I need different cards to call locally and another one for international?
I know nothing about this and am open to all suggestions. Also, approximate charges.

How is service in residential area and price? Is bandwidth enough to support video chat to US with Skype? Recommend any companies?
I will be working in private school? Do you know if their internet service is more reliable?

Finally, one last question: does the govt filter or block any sites, especially western, which would require me to subscribe to a VPN?

Thanks much and look forward to your assistance.
