I have not encountered places selling a China Sim in Singapore yet.

Maybe someone can share more light in this.

You can always get one easily at the airport you arrive at. This makes more sense as some of the services incur roaming charges when you travel out of the city or province where you purchased the card.

You can purchase from this website or the retailers:
Our Products > Ready-2-Go Travel Kit > China

You will need to buy the SIM card and the Link card which allows you to forward calls from your SG HP to the China SIM card phone number.

Accordingly to the SIM Kit which I bought previously, it will work on all regions in China. However, at that time, only iPhone 3S was available and there was no mention of MicroSIM. You may need to cut it yourself. I used it previously in China and did not have any problems. Also, the recharge card is readily available in most of the convenience stores in China.

You can try to contact them to check:

You can buy at the Airport where you land

I arrived in 广州 early thjis month at around 1 am. After immigration at the luggage collection area, there is shop selling local sim card at 100 yen per card.

They cut the card to microSiM size to fit on my iPhone 4S. Need a restart to get it working.

They would also teach you to use the card that meant for local use to call internationally via VOIP.

I am pretty sure that other airport should have such service. So do check for it first. before you get out.

PS: You can get it cheaper elsewhere may be at 60 to 80 yen. But then I save by being able to test it on the spot, and it come with 3 GB function (not sure if the cheaper one can do that)

China SIM

Thanks for the recommendation!

I got the China SIM card from Trusling and it worked like a charm. It came as a normal sized SIM so I had to bring it to a phone shop to get it clipped to a micro SIM with a standard metal clipper before I could use it in my iPhone4 (this service is available in nearly all phone shops). Apparently, this also works the same way with all the other SIMs which they offer.

And thankfully I bought it before going to China. Arrived in Shanghai and my friend, who also needed a China SIM, but couldn't find one at the airport. And by the time we got to the hotel, it was late and most phone shops were closed, so we just ended up sharing mine the first night!

Different region will be different charges. That means you need to pay for extra if your Sim is base on Guangdong but use in Shanghai

For those who has used this particular sim card, how does it stand on data usage? (Surfing - emails/internet/whatsapp)

Not particularly for calling purposes nor international sms for me..

Not for use on Iphone 4S as i am on Android and as such cannot have it cutted into MicroSim.
Needs to deposit $$35 with me, fully refundable when you return it to me after your China Trip.
Interested, please PM me for details.
