299 for 7 days unlimited data plus 100 bahts worth of call time (local/oversea)

Happy tourist SIM card at airport.
I use it for my iPhone 4, mainly for Google map, whatsapp & google search.
Very economical compared to Singtel $15/day unlimited overseas data roaming
Is this by DTAC?
Available for iPhone 5?

299B is like <SGD13
anyway if u wanna trim, there is a 49b daily package. but u may need to reactivate d package code daily.

Tourist SIM (Happy)

ok i didn't read this thread fully... just the first and last page and i just go...
in the end i just hoot the dtac happy 299 for 1 week internet and 100min talk time...
regrented....
they are operation 2G at 1800mhz and 3G at 850mhz... my Padfone only have 900 and 2100 in 3G


dtac say they are upgrading to 2100mhz but so far no 3g for me at all...
AIS clam that have some area of bangkok have 2100 already...
so i am 2.75G all the way for this trip with dtac...

Yes, it is just a self pwn on not reading detail enough...

if you use S3 or S4 or HTC One or Iphone 4 & 5 should not be a problem... just better check what your phone can do if you are using a not so common phone...

Unlucky man. I think almost 100% of everybody won't think of that until they actually get it then realize doesn't works. But did you show them your phone or pass them cause that's what I did when they asked for my phone.

Hi, I just came back from BKK for a 4D3N trip. I bought the 299Baht prepaid card which has 1-wk unlimited 3G access and 100Baht worth of phone calls. Just to check, when I received the SIM card, the counter staff just told me to replace the SIM card in my S3 on my own and refused to help me. I've been surfing the net and using Whatsapp, and my friends told me my Whatsapp doesn't reflect any Thai number but my own local number. Did I miss out on any crucial step of activating any code or such? Just concerned I've accidentally ended up using roaming instead all these while for my Internet usage *face palm*
as long as your Singapore sim card is not in the phone, i dun think u have to worry abt roaming...

that is the way it should work...
once active on your phone, account saved... so ppl still contact you with your singapore number account...
if sign up another whatapps account with the thai number... you have to inform all your friend again...
