Telco counters located at the arrival area. As for nano sim, really subject on availability. If the counter out of stock, you may try your luck at the 7-11 store one level above.

bkk airport got sell happy tourist sim card?
Yes, at the arrival level, u can c a few counters, DTAC is the one selling happy tourist sim card @ 299 Baht, it is near to a escalator, the staff can speak english, dun need to do anything, just pay and put the sim card in, wait for a while, then can use the 3G/call/sms alrdy... They will send reminder sms but it is in Thai so dun bother...

1st 1GB is very fast, then after that is slower but still ok and better than Singapore's 3G speed

The dTac counter is super crowded when I went there, just went straight to the counter and told salesperson 1x 7days data @ THB299 then paid and left.

Heard from others on another travel forum that TrueMove not bad.
Once card inserted, you can activate the free 2GB internet by pressing *850# then send. You will receive an SMS later with a Welcome package URL. Just click on the URL and it should work. Once activated it is valid for a month.
Promotion start from Aug - end Oct

I wonder if they still give out the free sim cards in airport. :?
Saw a youtube demo done at Siam Paragon and Central World,
DTAC speed was the slowest, TRUEMOVE was the fastest.

Anyone here used TRUEMOVE before?

Footnote states the card expires in 7 days after activation and previous bro said it's for 7 days. You can always verify before purchase at the booth.

It seems to me the 299 baht value pack is based on the starter pack so both can be used for 7 days except that the data bundle for the latter is capped at 90 mb so excess data will be charged at 1 baht/mb.
