I had bad experience buying from them. The sim card cannot be used when I reach Thailand. Went to phone shop let the staff do it also cannot work. In the end I buy the sim card from the shop instead.

If like that I rather you get from the shop itself outside the arrival gate. Some more save all your trouble they will do everything for you.

There is actually nothing to configure. So they basically just help you eject the Sim and slot in the Sim.

I usually buy and go, sometimes i also don't know why some people can get stuck at the counter with the phone exchanging hands so many times.

Maybe bad luck lor. The shop I went to is the Telco of my sim card, I didn't tell them I bought it from 3rd party. So OK lah. But buying from changi recommend is it cheaper than buying at bkk Airport?
