Can you access google/FB/WhatsApp using local SIM card in China, for instance? How about those not using dual SIM card phones? Carry 2 phones?

Each to his own as I reiterate.

other countries for data passport.
If go China , better get their Sim
I have ‘ unlimited ‘ China 4G data just $0.60 per day usage.
No data usage , no charge.
maintenance of the Sim just $1 per month.
Much worth it, if u ask me.
米粉卡,天神卡..etc
VPN for more convenience & privacy

having to 翻墙 in tiongland is a headache if you use a local SIM there.. even if you can find a VPN that works, the reduction of speed will most probably make you give up using fb, google, Instagram altogether.

M1 data passport can be used in China. I've tried it last June when I was there. Able to access WhatsApp, Facebook and Google. Don't need VPN,

Dont need to get second sim, just subscribe to M1 data passport $25/mth will do

Makes me laughed... HK SIM card? spare phone? Portable wifi?

So why not just use my 10GB data from M1 for only $25? Shake head.... why do something simple when one can come up with a complicated way.... :(

Nothing wrong with getting a local SIM when travelling when you have a dual SIM phone or already have mifi. It's always cheaper to get the local SIM of that country than using data passport.

Data Passport is simple hassle free. Getting local sim card you have to look for the shop or queue at airport to get it done.

Data Passport, once your plane landed, straight away after turning off flight mode can receive 4G data already. No need wait for queues at airport or wifi

Not only is it generally cheaper. But the data is also sure to work, and you'll get a local number for Uber or Grab drivers to contact you. Some of them will reject the moment they see a foreign number.

no one plan suit all and is the champion of champions... just get the plan that suits you the individual.

I personally prefer Orange and didn’t mind the 12 months contract, I get loads more than what I use to get with Red.

The data passport suit my particular needs because I spent a lot of time in China, I have a local Chinese SIM card but that’s purely for my local Chinese contents.

As suggested by some, use VPN lah... Yep, on paid VPN plan too. After trying some time using VPN to download / upload photos or email attachment... Given that up liao.

Each to his own since everyone has different needs.

For me it's the new user promo that is the best
