China Vows to Keep Growth Steady, Fine-Tune Policy

China unicom does have BIS but will only issue it to business customers! Have not heard much about China Telecom, i guess it is a smaller company - China unicom and China mobile are the main ones!

I havnt seen any SIM stalls at the airport but would make sense for them to be there, possibly at hongqiao but very unlikely at pudong (both shanghai) i would have thought....

Your best bet is to find a Carreforre or other similar convenience store which sells mobile phones, there are street vendors who sell SIM cards and top ups also...

You can get the SIM and then go with that, your phone and your passport to the store and they should be able to register you, to be honest its a very big hassle for 8 days so if possible, i would just use your roaming on your home network!

I dont think there are any shorter plans for BIS services other than monthly! - Hope this helps!

Seeking Advice - Buying a Prepaid SIM card

2006-02-06 23:30:29 by EternalRecycler

Got a Samsung phone from a FOAFOAF that was apparently used in Asia - the numerical dial tones can be spoken in Mandarin Chinese and there's what looks like a Mandarin Chinese text editor built inside.
However, the SIM card's a T-Mobile, so I'm thinking this phone *was* used in North America.
I'd like to buy a prepaid SIM card for my own use, but I'm not sure about the things I should look for when I'm shopping around. I just know there are quite a few CL ads for PP SIM cards.
I'm not sure if my internaional phone would pose a problem in terms of compatibility with the North American wireless network

  • Avatar Priscilla H Will the phone I receive from the Blackberry Trade Up program be unlocked?

    I want to trade up the Curve for the Torch. I have T-mobile, but the Torch is exclusive to ATT, therefore I would need an unlocked Torch.

    • You can get a Blackberry Torch from AT&T, on regular the Torch 9800 will have the Network locked to AT&T. In other words, the Blackberry 9800 Torch from AT&T can be used with their sim cards but if you will use other SIM card on that device it will not get signal - because it s locked to AT&T. Some people want to use the Blackberry Torch 9800 with other GSM carriers such as T-Mobile. Vodafone, Orange, Virgin. O2 …
