Hi ,anyone know how much e airport is selling the simpati sim ? Gg over tis coming July


when exactly did you buy it? indonesian cards have short lives. short active period followed by 20-30 days of grace.

one way to check if it's still alive is to stick it into your phone.

Hi kitkat2,

Many thank for your reply. I had checked the old sim card cannot be used anymore. In the end, subscribe data passport.

Backpacking in Indonesia

Hi I will be doing a two weeks backpacking trip in Indonesia. I will fly to Lombok and come back from Jakarta. Any recommendations for prepaid sim card? It's gonna be my first time there in Indonesia. Appreciate if anyone could help me by telling me which telcom prepaid sim card I should get, where should I get it and how much would it cost?

Thank you! (:

The best way is to get M1 prepaid sim card. $15 and it comes with $18 value.

M1 give 1Gb free data for 30 days that you can use it for data roaming in Indonesia for free. If not enough, use the $18 value to purchase additional data.

Best value!

it's $15 now with $15 credit loaded. free 2gb data for 20 days.

m1's counterpart in indo is xl. xl should work great in the cities, but it didn't work for me when i was in countryside in east java.

telkomsel, the singtel of indonesia.

the tourist price would be around 100-200k rupiah. cheaper if you order from taobao.

telkomsel has 30 days. it also allows you to purchase active period for up to 1 year for around 100k rp. not worth it in my opinion.

I just came back from batam for a 1 day trip. Bought a 3gb sim card on Qoo10. It costs $8, but if you buy with ferry tickets and apply qoo10 discount coupon and qoo10 coin, it will cost less. Although the instruction stated cannot hotspot, I tried without any problem. As I choose to collect the sim card at ferry terminal to save delivery cost, please bring your own pin t open your sim card slot.
