Picking a sim card mobile phone package


Recommended Posts

I need to get a sim card for my mobile for Beijing. My wife is in Hebei so she will be the only person I call outside Beijing realistically on a daily basis. I'm here for 10 months. I've tried going on the China Mobile website but my Chinese isn't good enough to understand the various deals. The English version just brings me to the corporate section. I'm looking to get internet on the phone on the go (not just WiFi and be able to receive calls even if I run out of credit. Are bill phones better or is it better to top up? Can anyone recommend anything or a way I can find out more on my own. Don't want to pester the Mrs as she has the kids and her family to worry about plus is out of touch with the deals available.

Went with China Unicom and got a package with 2.5GB of internet per month which is loads as I do t really use it for video content, just when my WiFi is acting up I can tether with my iPhone. Costs 200 per month and I get about 38RMB free voice/text credit each month.
