Tried the main store a few days back at MBK; no stock. Went to one of those small handphone shops and was quoted 499 baht with configuration. I bargain until 299 baht; wholesale price without config. Put in my phone, switch on.. Working already. Don't need any config. I using BB so need to call and activate the BB plan which is ~80 baht for 1 week.

Once u come out from the custom check, turn right walk straight and u will see the dtac counters plus counters of other telsco. Alternatively, u may go up to lvl 3 and buy from the 7-11.

Dtac? 299baht with free unlimited 3g for 7days with 100bahts of free calls at 3baht/min for oversea call.

If not enough call-time,they got special rate that will be sms to you once you insert their sim card. I rem quite good de. Just used it last week,promo shd be still availabe.

recently i tried the AIS - http://www.ais.co.th/roaming/th/visi...avelersim.aspx
it is not bad for a 299baht and runs on 3G 2100MHz. But have data quota of 1GB and after that will be 64kbps speed

But DTAC runs on 3G 850MHz, so some phones used the DTAC sims, it will be at most Edge speed. As most sg phones is not buildin with 3G 850MHz modules.

As AIS is running on 3G 2100MHz, it compatible with most phones.

Not true. My Dtac card is on roaming mode in Singapore with Starhub. I can also receive SMS from Dtac on PIN and balance.

back from Thailand. Got the Dtac happy tourist card at the airport dtac counter. they will help u change the sim, do the settings and test the phone before passing back to you. save the hassle plus most of their instruction and sms is in thai.

the broadband seem to be just 1gb and not unlimited as claims. like in sg, in the city, the speed slows to a snail pace at some locations. outside bkk is better speed.

once u reach 800mb data, they will send u sms to warn u. so yeah please take note not to send ur pics freely as if it is really unlimited..

thai to thai call is 1.5bht per min. thai to sg is 3bht per min. u get 100 bht worth of calls for 299 tourist happy sim.


my suggestion is to give AIS tourist sim 299 a try instead of getting dtac only.
