Prepaid data sim card

Recommended Posts

Where can I buy a prepaid sim card that I can use for data? Example for my IPhone? Is there any package where I cam subscribe to data for 1 week? Does it includes voice?

Hi curvaceous, you can refer this post under FAQ section in the Plan a Trip forum :

Some pre-paid SIM cards do have data package, you can browse thru the telecom websites that I posted there to get more info, cheers~

1. PCCW - from HK$48 (2G)

2. SmarTone - from HK$48 (Compatible with Tri-band, Dual Band, HSPA+ phones)

3. 3 - from HK$33 (2G) or HK$98 (3G)

4. One2Free - from HK$48 (2G & 3G)

Hi Joslin, you may choose the SmarTone HK$48 pre-paid SIM with Data usage HK$8 per hour, and daily cap is HK$24 (maximum charge per day, i.e. even you've used it for 20hrs within a day, you are charged HK$24 only.) It may need to register with some personal details when you activate it, but I think it's just a few simple steps only.
