If I were to buy a 10 day unlimited data package and I am going on a 11 days trip; is it possible to go to 7-11 to top up just 1 more day of data?

yes it's possible. if you are using dtac you can top up and buy the 1 day plan using their app.

May i know which sim card between Dtac & TrueMove can be used in Thailand without activating ? (As in i purchased in singapore and can immediately use switch on in thailand?) Intend to pop into my mifi router.

Does DTAC or Truemove need to set APN as well ?

Can the Truemove extend validity to 1 year as well ?

Which of Truemove or Dtac has a app to use on mobile phone ?

Many thanks for your replies.

You need to register all new sims these days and most of the time apn is auto. Doubt True sim has 1year validity.

similar to local telco prepaid cards.. there is a validity period. you need to top up or use your card before it expires. everytime you top up it will extend its validity.. max is capped at 1 year.

You can actually go to any of the phone shop to buy a normal sim. These day alot of free gift like free fb,IM for 30days and the sim only cost 50bucks at most. One day free unlimited internet for less then 20bucks is more then enough for normal surfing.
